I love food and I enjoy dining out. But nothing irks me more then going out to eat and having terrible service. It can make the most incredible meal taste like poo. Yeah, I said poo- like a five year old. I have dined in restaurants all over the world, (that makes me sound rich and powerful doesn’t it? That’s what I thought.) and after years of searching for the holy grail of restaurant experiences, I’ve finally decided to document my findings. Just like Indiana Jones, but different. Kind of. Okay- that doesn’t even make sense. Scratch that.
So how do I rate my experiences? Just like I would if we were on a date.
One Night Stand: Terrible first impression. Thanks, but no thanks.
It’s Complicated: Not sure if it was you or me. Let’s try it again, shall we?
Worth A Bang: The service wasn’t stellar, but the food was banging.
Let’s Be Friends: The food was good, but the service made the meal.
Wholly Gastromony: The perfect union of amazing food and outstanding service.
PS- if you’re a waiter reading this and got less then a 20% tip from me- there’s a pretty good reason. I was either really drunk, didn’t have enough money, didn’t pay the check or despised sitting in your section. Most likely, it was the latter.
