Five Things That Can Ruin Dinner at a Restaurant

According to a recent survey of 2,000 people, one in four of us have left a restaurant in the middle of a meal because the experience was so bad.

A lot of people said cleanliness was the main issue.  And 85% said it’s just as important as how good the food tastes.  Here are the top five things that can ruin a dining experience, according to the survey . . .

1.  A foul or unpleasant smell.

2.  Dirty or sticky floors.

3.  Dirty plates, glasses, or silverware.

4.  A sticky table.

5.  Slow service, or a rude waiter.

A few more that just missed the top five are too much noise . . . a dirty dining room or bathroom . . . your waiter’s appearance makes them seem unprofessional . . . and the dining area smells TOO clean, like air freshener or cleaning products. (MSN)
