What Would Gordon Ramsay Say?

January 31, 2013

I’ve recently watched every season of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares (UK) and I just finished Ramsay’s Best Restaurant, and they’ve made me very observant at restaurants because I know what problems to look for. It actually kind of stinks because now I feel snobbish when eating out.

As an example, this past evening I was relieved of babysitting duties for a few hours to go out to dinner with a few family friends. This restaurant in question is a small Japanese restaurant called Syun Izakaya, and I was impressed by the food but the service was sub-par.

I could go into every detail and bore you, but I haven’t ever written comments on a “comment card” before in my life, until now. Now anytime I go to a restaurant I’m going to judge both the food and service, and I’m going to be “that guy” that writes comments on comment cards.

Thanks Gordon Ramsay.

That said, negative feedback is the most valuable feedback, so being snobbish and pointing out to restaurants how they can improve isn’t a bad thing. I encourage you to do it too.
