There is an extremely nice restaurant near us. Fine dining, locavore, and yet casual. There is a review in Yelp, where someone gave them the lowest score possible. Why? Reviewer had family visiting from out of town, and they decided to try the place. Twenty people show up on a Friday night, no reservations, and although reviewer admitted that they were seated in the bar and given free appetizers while the staff tried to get a table big enough for them, they had to leave after 45 minutes because there was still no table. The stupid restaurant lost out on their 20 person tab!
I was so glad to see comments pointing out that showing up with a huge party at a busy restaurant on the biggest night of the week is a guarantee that you will wait. Was the restaurant supposed to kick other customers (customers who had made reservations, I might add) out because you are just so SS?
