Quince Corkage fee and policy

dk2463 | Apr 13, 2008 09:17 AM

We went to Quince last night and did the 5 course tasting menu with addiitonal cheese course, bought a $45 botlle of white wine, spent another $75 on additional glasses of wine and also brought 1 bottle of red. They charged us the $35 corkage and when I asked if it could be removed, they outright refused (it's their policy, fine I accept ). I've been to a lot of high end restaurants and I've never had a restaurant refuse to remove corkage in a similar situation. I've made sure to tell all my frineds that this is their policy and I know that none of them will ever eat there because of this.

There are a lot of great and expensive restaurants in this town and standing alone with poor policies will not get you very far. I'm curious if anyone else has ever had a similar situation in the top tier restaurants like I mentioned, I never had the corkage charged when I bought other bottles.
