When your meal is wrong?

    What do you do when you order one thing and get another, or your meal isn't prepared in the way you specified?

    If it's a small detail then I won't usually worry about it but I won't tip as much either. If it's something entirely different then I'll say something. Sometimes that means I get to eat two meals because they will leave the first and won't charge for it. :D

    where do you go where you get 2 meals? Lol if somethings wrong with mine they take away my plate and then bring it back to me.

    They normally take the plate away when my order is wrong too. lol

    But yes, I say something. The tips are for the waitresses who wait on you, it's not always their fault if something comes out wrong...so I don't let my tip affect that unless the wait staff was rude when I said something.

    If they fuck it up bad, I'll ask for it to be corrected but if it's something small like asking for a burger without tomatoes and then I get tomatoes, I won't complain. However, I will tip less because for all they know, I'm allergic to tomatoes and that would have definitely been problems for them.

    I usually don't make a fuss if it's something small, but if my meal is totally wrong then I'll definitely say something. I'm paying for this meal so I should receive it the way I asked for it.

    My tip won't effect the waitress either, like AK mentioned a lot of times it's not their fault the meal is wrong.

    Yeah, I agree that it's certainly not the waitresses fault if it comes out wrong, that is the kitchen's fault. If it's a small detail, I just deal with it. If it's a whole different meal, then I will say something about it. They are usually really busy though, so I don't like to bother them much if I don't have to.

    If I'm eating in a restaurant then I'd tell them to change it. If I've ordered takeaway and it's only a small thing wrong I won't bother. If the thing I was most looking forward to wasn't amongst the food then I'd complain.

    The waiter brings the wrong meal, it's their fault and my tip for them will be less. I would demand the meal I had ordered. If it's a chicken instead of beef burger I will let it slide.

    This is my weakness. I usually am the last person to complain about something but when it comes to food in the restaurant (especially when not fast food), I'm picky. Maybe it's because I agree to pay for more when I go out and eat (while I could have just prepared it myself at home) so I want more value for my meal, which includes correct preparation and good service. And my patience level is affected by my hunger. I may not tip depending on how the server dealt with my concern.

    I usually won't say anything unless it's really wrong and I don't like the other stuff nearly as much.
