  • If a dish has mushrooms on it after I tell them I am allergic to it and they still put them on it.

  • I have a few times. The ones I can remember was my salmon being raw and another time something was cold. I don't like to complain often but sometimes it just can't be avoided.

  • I've done it a few times when they get it wrong. Like if I ask for no tomatoes but it comes back to me with a hell of a lot of tomatoes. I just send it back when it comes back to with something I asked not to have on it

  • Yep I did the other night actually. My husband and my food was insanely cold for being 'brought out as soon as it was made'. They weren't even that busy. Several people were complaining about it.

  • I have several times. If its not cooked right or something is wrong about the order. The restaurant is there for service and if they don't do their part correctly then they should fix it. (I was a waitress and believed this even then.)

  • I've done it when the order was wrong, the food was undercooked, made incorrectly, cold...

  • I have. I am not too picky about my food.. but for example, we go out to the Olive Garden maybe once or twice a month and I always order the same thing. This one time I got it and it tasted AWFUL. I don't know what it was, maybe some bad cheese or something but I KNEW something wasn't right about it and I sent it back. I wasn't rude about it though, just told them I order this religiously and something is definitely wrong with it.

  • I have a couple of times...I always order steak well done and have gotten it bloody before and just recently we went to Ruby Tuesday and my mini chicken sandwiches were raw!

  • If I send it back I ususally dont order anything else, I just wont eat it or pay for it...I have sent back steaks my hubby and I ordered for lunch mine medium well and his medium. We cut them and they bled all over our food! It was absolutely disgusting!

  • I'm afraid to! The other day my biscuits & gravy was cold but it took forever to get them so I dealt with it
