Husband and I had our Valentine dinner last night at a restaurant that one of his best friend's co-owns. I ordered my streak medium, it literally came charred. The marinade they used saved the flavor thankfully.

DH says not to tell the friend because he'll lose his mind and freak on the cook, I want him to know what's happening when he's at other restaurants (there are six around the city).

Should I tell him? Friend does have a work temper and most of his employees are terrified of him so I see where DH is coming from.

Edited to add: said friend is the executive chef of these restaurants.

Same! If I had a problem with my meal, I would have said something right then and there!

I'm a pansy. Plus my MIL works there a couple lunch shifts a week, I didn't want to make a fuss and ultimately embarrass her. The meal was paid with a gift card we got for Christmas, too, so we didn't pay anything out of pocket.

I likely wouldn't have said anything in your position either.

That's tough. I have a friend who owns a pizza place and he always wants to know if something goes wrong, however, he uses the information constructively. He wouldn't go off on anyone. If he did, I'd probably hold off on saying anything.

I wouldn't say anything now. You should have said something there and asked for a new steak

When you don't receive what you asked for, then you should bring it up to the cook/chef of the restaurant at the time of your meal. I hate doing that, too, but when you take the time to order something to be done a particular way, that's what you should get.  Cooking the perfect steak takes a little practice and it's easy to overcook when you're aiming for "medium" but that one looks like he put it on and just forgot about it. That can happen I suppose, but then he plated it and sent it out knowing it was supposed to be medium and it was charred; he's not even trying to do his job. I think I'd say something to the friend, even if he does blow up at the cook. It's his business the cook represents and I'd want to know if one of my employees was basically just phoning it in.

It needs to be addressed at the time of meal.
