if the food or service sucks do you complain?

and if its just the food that sucked do you still tip?
how many times have you complained about service or food?

I've never had a problem with service..we have complained about food once or twice. Only because we got something we didnt order. They were really nice though and quick to fix our order and even offered a free desert.

  • No, never. I've worked in many a restaurants and I've seen people spit in "complainers" food. Or drop something on the floor. Or whatever other gross things you don't want to think about when it comes to your food.

  • oh, I am a notoriously bad BAD tipper. I am no longer allowed to tip. My dad, husband, mother in law, etc always makes sure to leave more.

  • Everything has to be really bad for me to say anything( like food totally nasty) If the servise sucked then we just dont tip much.

  • If the food is bad,I'll just ask for my money back. i too do not want to consume some kitchen worker's bodily fluids! Bad service i don't tip.

  • if the food is bad, i will ask that it is corrected. nobody is perfect!
    if the service is bad, it is reflected in the tip. there is no need to complain.
    if the food is bad, my dh will eat it, and never go back! i don't understand him at all!

    here is the spin off---
    if the food is great, do you complement the staff?
    if the service is great, do you leave a bigger tip?

  • and if its just the food that sucked do you still tip?
    Yes, if it's just the food and the service was good I still tip - WELL because I realize they are probably getting the short end of the stick from a lot of other customers

    how many times have you complained about service or food?
    Quite a bit. I used to manage a restaurant and I know that there's no way the manager can improve the restaurant unless he knows there is a problem. I do it tactfully and I'm not rude or mean, but I do let them know.

  • Hibbing- Just curious, why are you such a terrible tipper? Are you just very picky about service or what?
