how to send food back?

monica | Mar 10, 200102:56 PM

what is the proper way to send food back? a while ago a friend and i decided to have lunch at boulevard. i ordered a steak, and asked for it to be cooked medium rare. unfortunately, it came to the table cooked medium. i didn't send it back; it was still a very good steak, just not cooked to my liking. this has happened to me in a few restaurants, and usually it's not that big of a deal. i am interested to know, though, what the etiquette is for sending back something like a steak that was not cooked to order. thanks for all your imput!
