Each part of the world has its own restaurant culture, starting from serving, food taste, hospitality, as well as complaints attending. Share your experience.And name the restaurant and place.
I live in a Big 10 college town and we have almost all types of cuisine here - from an Italian restaurant that's been (just) off campus for over 50 years to the recent addition of an authentic taste of India (or is it Pakistani?) eatery in the middle of the college scene. Also in the college campus area is a Sushi restaurant, two Greek Gyro stops - right across the street from each other, and a Danish Pasty shop with the most delicious lunches. Also downtown are many food vendors who serve everything from Mexican to Chinese to fruit smoothies to different flavored popcorn. (ever had strawberry or blueberry flavored popcorn? Me neither - but they serve it!)
We also have a fair amount of home-cooking type restaurants (like Denny's and Perkins) and an authentic Mexican restaurant. (its where all the Mexicans go when they want to eat out)
I prefer to go downtown for the choices but the rest of my family enjoys what they're familiar with.
For hospitality, I'd say the newer places downtown aren't that great - usually run by immigrants who have a different culture so really it's just a matter of getting used to it. For complaints - I complain most about the chains - the food is served cold (because they have the air conditioning set to 68 degrees or less) and the staff seems to think that since the restaurant is still there they must be successful so why bother to try?
cold food, really I hate and I never accept. If circumstances makes me to take cold food at a particular restaurant, I never forget the restaurant in my life time.
oh my gosh...lol...I'll give it some thought. I'm not a food critic (I like almost all kinds of food) and we don't go out to eat much. But, I could probably come up with something...
Don't know what I was thinking, but the Pasty's are Cornish Pasty's, not Danish! lol
unfortunately the area i moved to is rural and the food is all batter dipped and deep fried...
the fast food restaurants have better food...
There are a few good restaurants moving in here..from out of state...
not the food is very bland in my opinion
I am from the metropolitan NY area and used to all cuisines and very good food.
I am in central France, in the countryside. Restaurants around here have seasonal menus; You won't really find anything else apart from local specialities, which are delicious. We used to have a Chinese restaurant but it closed because it was not popular.
We have a lot of "franchise" restaraunts. Some are locally owned and operated. They are all pretty good...obviously or they wouldn't make it. My city "Houston", has a reputation for lots of folks dining out. I guess that comes from people getting together in the cool A/C...if I had to guess a main reason.
We have all kinds of restaraunts...but I bet...being from Texas I should lay claim to great Steaks-Great Bar BQ-Great "Tex-Mex"-and Seafood (for my area)...but we have great restaraunts of all types of food.
I, myself, really enjoy a good ol' nieghborhood place (restaraunt), like we used to have alot of...back in the day. Over the years...I have found some of these places still around...although many of them aren't close to my nieghborhood!
Anything, really. I don't eat out much, but I think most types of cuisine from all around the world are available in the area I live - Indian, Thai, traditional English, fast food, Mexican, Chinese, Lebanese, French, Italian, Spanish - and I'm sure there's much more. I am vegetarian, so I like to have a good choice of meat free dishes and prefer it if there is something other than cheese based dishes all the time. I really hate unfriendly service as well.

If a person establishes a restaurant, what need is that restaurant meeting? Is is food or is that too simple of an answer? Is it the experience or the convenience? Since the French Revolution, restaurants have been evolving and I think the question is interesting.

Have you ever eaten in a restaurant alone?A number of single people refuse to eat alone in a restaurant or go to the movies alone. Are you comfortable with it? Why or why not? Is it about being secure or what others would think of your relationship status?
