Too many restaurants withholding ice!

Rptrane | Mar 29, 201502:30 PM     26

So there are about a half dozen restaurants, some of the better ones in town, where they refuse to give you ice with your water. You'll get a decanter of chilled water but no ice.
I know this is common in Europe (I found it a little annoying there too) but this is America and specifically Texas. We like our water cold and there's a good chance it's hot outside.
I recently went to the Peached Tortilla and had to ask for ice. My waiter forgot so I went to the bar to get it myself.
Even if they just gave us ice in our glasses and left the warm bottle that would be fine. No ice at all just stinks.
Does this bother anyone else?
