Spelling errors on menus and websites

I just made a reservation on Open Table for a mid-priced restaurant and was stunned to see "pre-fix menu available" on Open Table--and then on the restaurant's website. I write and edit quite a bit for work so I know I'm more likely to notice these things, but I think the message it sends is that there's no attention to detail on the restaurant's end. I say that knowing restaurant owners and chefs and knowing full well that running a restaurant is HARD--but why not hire someone to review things like this? Terrible reflection on the business, imo--and all the more so when it is then transferred on to the menus. /rant (sorta)
