The Etiquette of Sending Back Meals

Posted in Restaurant by ebs4pos on July 11, 2009

Fine dining isn’t always so “fine.” Sometimes that delicious meal is tainted by overcooked meat, still-frozen food, caterpillars nestled in the greens or other surprises that ruin a perfectly good dinner.

When bad luck strikes, you might want to cast a seething glare at your waiter or stamp your foot and throw a hissy fit, but if Miss Manners has taught us anything, it’s that a little kindness can go a long way. The clip above outlines how to handle those unfortunate scenarios that necessitate replacement dishes. With a little tact and kindness, a friendly server should be happy to help.

Naturally, these tips tend to work best at upscale establishments. Complain at your own risk when dining at the local dive. Otherwise you might get an even less savory surprise.
