Do Restaurants Reserve the Right to Rush You Through Your Dinner?
I am one of those people who takes restaurant reservations seriously. I have a huge amount of respect for the restaurant business and try to be an exemplary customer. However, I do have expectations and one of them is to be treated fairly - and that means the same as everyone else. I dined at a restaurant recently where the only available spot on Opentable was at 10.15pm, later than ideal, but we confirmed nonetheless. Ten minutes after we were seated, and before any pleasantries or the offer of an apperitif, we were somewhat unceremoniously informed by our waiter "I'll have to rush your orders through straight away because the kitchen is closing in 5 minutes". Was this a reasonable action from the restaurant or not? Have your say in my poll...

(PS - I am planning an update on this story, most likely next week. I was hoping for a response from the restaurateur but nothing yet. I wrote to him a week and a half ago.)
