Would a roach scare you away if the food was good and the place did not look dirty?

Would a roach scare you away if the food was good and the place did not look dirty?

A few months ago, we ate a sushi restaurant that had just opened up near my office. While we were dining, a small roach ran across our table (the hubster trapped it under the soy sauce pot). We showed it to the server and he was exceedingly embarrased as he dispatched it and hustled away.

We were tempted to leave, but our food seemed fresh, properly prepared, and was tasty. I was creeped out the whole time and looking for more bugs, but saw nothing else out of the ordinary. Everything within sight looked clean... the carpet, the fixtures... everything tidy, nothing dingy or grimy or smelly. The health department sign in the front was an "A."

We did not get comped anything, which I thought odd, since we didn't immediately leave and refuse to pay, which some people would have, I presume. But we haven't been back since. I know I should have summoned the manager to report the bug, but having never been in that situation, I wasn't sure what to do.

What would you have done? Would you ever return?
