Tonight four of us ate at a fairly new place (opened Dec 2011) two of us have become regulars there and the two of our guests (family) were 1st timers. It's an upscale restaurant with a sommelier, wine room, semi-known chef, etc. but not crazy expensive. Say $50pp wih 2 drinks.

I ordered two apps as my meal: salad and shrimp. I loved the salad; and hated the shrimp. I ate two shrimp and was done. There was nothing wrong with the execution of the plate but I didn't care for it.

My table carried on about me not eating it....and the server comped my shrimp. I was so embarrassed.

My table said, "if you don't like something you should complain."

I say, "if the kitchen messes up, I will complain; but if I just decide I don't care for something, that's on me."
