    Today was also my son's birthday, so we went to a resturant that us locals always frequent. The service from the waitress was ok, but my chips were cold, my mom's kiev was cold, and all of us actually left half our food cause it was so terrible.

    What do you do in this circumstance?

    I don't usually argue with waitress or chefs (I am scared they remember me and add some revenge sauce), but can you refuse to pay, or what options have you got?

    When the waitress asked if we wanted doggy bags I said no cause I didn't want the dog to run away, but I did not want to be rude and argue with the manager cause they do have great eisbeins. So I just left it.

    magman - write a review on food24 or one of the other foodblogs. Also phone the owner - he has a right to know what his staff is upto without him there

    i am a caterer for woolworths and you have got a responsibility to talk to the manager. how can they improve if they dont know. it is the manner inwhich you do it. mention you are a loyal customer and that you intend to still frequent their restuarant. let them know the food today is not upto their usually excellent service and cuisine and as a loyal customer you felt it necessary to mention as not all customers are as loyal. then watch your service improve!

    Magman, if it is Jacks, let me know, I'll sort it out, if it is Spur or Dros, well, they cannot cook, not even trying to

    Magman, I'm wondering if this wan't the same place I went ti couple weeks back, same story.

    Is this the place that has been "relaunched" as an "upmarket" place of its well known old restuarant?
