Avoid peak periods
Restaurants generally have their biggest number of clients over the weekend and during holidays and if you can, you should avoid eating out at such times. The restaurant staff will most probably be overworked and irritable and this could mess what you expected to be a great occasion. The quality of the food will also be poor.
Go out early
It might not be as romantic as you wish for you to go out early but doing this has definite benefits. There’ll be fewer people at the restaurant and you get the attention you deserve from the restaurant staff. You also get to enjoy better quality food than those who come later.
Make your feelings known
Your experience at a restaurant could help the management and future diners. If you’ve had a great experience, complimenting the staff will motivate them to maintain that standard. For negative experiences, it’d help to raise it with the management rather than getting tempted to write a negative review. Even when you feel offended, you must raise your complaint in a polite manner – this is likely to be treated with greater gravity by the management. Complaints delivered in polite language will most probably be acted upon and this will guarantee that you have a great experience next time you visit.
