I've drunk beer from almost every vessel imaginable. Beer is beer. There are good ones and there are bad ones. Vine glass will break if you pour hot drink inside.

I don't listen to a waiter and I don't agree if they offer me something. I just always say straight what I'm going to eat and wait till they bring me my food

I wouldn't say that waiters who are not allowed to wear heir hair down is a trick. It's mostly the way of making the food safe and hygienic

I don't really see any cheating, just a few minor legal tricks, but most are allowed. As long as a waiter is not intrusive, I think that's okay. Restaurants are having a hard enough time making money and existing, the competition is big and you have to come up with something to make your mark.

...

I don't see anything wrong with giving tables with a good view to people who are enjoying a meal and not only a cup of coffee. It's like always in life, you spend more money, you get more value. It's just as simple as that!!

...

Why is it a "trick" if kids get a half meal and also pay half the price?? The waiter has the instruction to offer this generosity as a nice gesture because there is no regular children's menu. A drink or a dessert for the child you would order anyway, without his offer the menu for the guest would be more expensive first. But since most of the guests accept the offer, the restaurateur loses money first. And now his hope for more tip is predicted as a trick ?? He would be a bad merchant, if he lived with the expectation of how a guest behaves, that way he can't earn any money.

The statement: "A dish with a discount will still earn some money for the restaurant and the bill and the expected tip will be bigger" is so stupid. It would be the same as if I told you in a store, "I just will pay you less for this article, you still earn something on it".

...

"There is one reason why waiters are not allowed to let their hair down or ....." - Yes there is a reason, these are called *hygiene regulations*.

"...guests don’t like it when waiters or bartenders look better than they do" - Think of me what you want, I don't care, but looking at a waiter who doesn't look like 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' is what I'd perfer, because I want to enjoy my meal!!

...

Giving away free appetizers or drinks is usual in most better restaurants; giving foods fancy names is what the customers expect to feel themselves "special" for that dinner, so why not?? I don't see such things as tricks, I would rather say they have good ideas to satisfy the customers and of course to earn money, that's what they are there for.

...

Your article sounds like a single charge of restaurants, as if they have to apologize for making money.

If you think it's enough to rent a room, put in some tables and chairs, perhaps lay down some tablecloths and menus, offer very ordinary food at ordinary prices and the whole world comes to dinner, then you have a weird worldview.

...

Don't make people so insecure to go to a restaurant and question any gesture or see scams everywhere. People want to enjoy a good meal and relax a bit and the restaurateur wants to offer that to the guests, not more, but not less either.

...

Let the restaurateur do it his way, if people don't like it, the next restaurant is just around the corner!!
