We all have heard the good and bad reviews about so many restaurants. People are always trying out different restaurants and heard people saying, “we didn’t love the ambiance of the restaurant,” “the staff wasn’t cooperative,” “the taste of the food was sick,” and so many. And this is not only limited to other people. We have been on those shoes as well. As we never leave the chance of judging everyone and pinpointing the restaurants’ goods and bads.
But have ever given even a slightest of the mistakes we all as a customer are making in a restaurant? I think we have not! We will now discuss the top 7 mistakes we all make intentionally or unintentionally in a restaurant that causes a real problem for the workers.
1. You Didn’t Make Reservations
Accept the fact that we all in our lifetime have walked in any restaurant randomly without making reservations. If we get the table by chance, we don’t utter a word, but, in some cases, we don’t get the table. Due to what we all start defaming the service and the workers of that restaurant. And waiting just for 15-30 mins seems like a real struggle to some customers, and they leave the restaurant being fussy.
So rather than blaming the services, we should play our part and make our reservations.
2. You Are Touching the Server
Just think about being an employee of an office or worker of any place, and your customer keeps on touching you while you are dealing with. Not necessarily in an inappropriate way, but still being touchy with you. Doesn’t sound good, right? So, think about what the servers are going through when some of the restaurants’ customers are continually being touchy with them while placing an order.
And this mistake some people repeat and doesn’t even bother to realize how uncomfortable we are making the server.
3. You Left Disappointment Without Informing
We all have this thing called “jumping right into the conclusion.” This is not adequate because we don’t know this habit is ruining the business of some person. If you go to the restaurant and don’t like the food or taste, then confront the manager and explain to them what was lacking in your food item or which flavor shouldn’t be there. Instead of giving 1 star, we should give them a chance and help them in the improvement.
4. You Don’t Give the Reasonable Tip
Going to a fancy restaurant means an extra fancy bill. Because they charge pretty extra much according to some people’s pockets. This ultimately results in less tip for the servers, which is not justified in any place. We all should make a rule if we can’t pay a deserving bonus to the servers, then we shouldn’t be dinning in the first place. Because there is a vast misunderstanding, the bills we pay go directly to the restaurant owners. The tip we produce is for the extra effort of the workers in it.
5. You Had No-Idea About the Menu
Sometimes you walk in the restaurant without knowing the menu that the restaurant offers or, more likely, without knowing about each item’s price. Everything is on the internet in this generation. All you should do this do some research on the respected restaurant you are planning to go to. So, for later, you won’t leave the restaurant disappointment or don’t misbehave with the team.
6. You Staying Longer, Unnecessarily
It is amusing how we all get too grumpy on our orders getting late but won’t even consider it wrong for sitting in a restaurant for extra hours irrelevantly. It will be far better if we leave the table after eating so that other customers can come and sit on our tables. Servers won’t go and ask you to leave; you have to be alert in this.
7. You Don’t Have Basic Manners
Agree or not, but most of the customers don’t have the manners of dining in. Some will come with huge families and be all noisy without even caring what environment they are creating. Some parents won’t bother to stop their kids from running around in the restaurant and teach them that it is not a play area. Also, assume you are sitting in an eating place, and some random person is talking on a phone call loud. How annoying it sounds, right? If you are that person, please stop doing it as it is not very pleasing.
These were seven mistakes workers of the restaurants have shared. And we tried to seek light on it. Suppose you are someone who makes these mistakes or even one of them. Then please work on these things because we never know the problems we cause for the other ones.
