Wine Service Complaint
Ever notice that in many restaurants when you order a bottle of wine, the waiter comes along frequently and tops up your glass to almost full? A wine glass should never be filled to the brim as it inhibits swirling for aeration and encourages spillage. In some cases, it’s just that the waiter doesn’t know any better or feels they are providing good service, but much of the time, I feel there is another reason for it. As they make most of their wages from tips, they know they will only get one tip from your seating. Therefore, I wonder if they hurry you along so you’ll finish your meal quicker and leave, making room for another seating and another potential tip. The more seatings, the more tips! That concept really bugs me.
