Server: "This section is closed."

Last weekend we stopped at a Bob Evans chain restaurant for dinner. We were seated and waited for a server to acknowledge us. Minutes later, a server came over and said, “This section is closed.”

This happens from time to time in restaurants in general.

Servers, please don’t tell a customer that the section they were sat in by your restaurant is closed. It makes them feel wrong and makes a bad impression. It’s not your customer’s fault that your host/hostess sat them in a closed section.

Think it. Let it be on the tip of your tongue. JUST DON’T SAY IT.
