Do you let your child run wild in restaurants?

I was out last night at a very posh restaurant, Denny's. Yes, I know, high class. We were seating way in the back, I mean WAY, like you could see the section unless you rounded a corner. My sis had her 2 month old and her 2 yr old. I had my 7,10, 15 yr olds. My 2 yr old nephew proceeded to climb the mountain of high chairs and bounce on booths. This particluar Dennys had a long booth running the entire back length of the place. My nephew gets on it and starts running back and forth singing Wheels on the Bus. I helped wrangle him as did my older kids but my sis was content to let him run alond the booth...

I know she is a "Waldorf" parent so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with her acceptance of his debauchery. I just can't remember my kids ever doing that crap. What says you?

No, I would not allow my children to act that way. At 3 & 2 they know they are to behave or we will leave.

My kids are obnoxious in restaurants sometimes...and my husband and I grab their arms and "whisper yell" at them to sit down and act like a good kid or we're leaving.  And we probably get evil looks from other diners like we're mean parents (don't know, cause we coudnl't care less).  Seems like people don't want kids to act crazy, but they also don't want parents to discipline them if they do.
