You Got Yelped!!!

Meet M S from Los Angeles, CA.  A woman, who in typical Yelper-cowardly fashion, has hidden her face in her profile pic because she doesn't want the world to know what she looks like when she writes pointless reviews on Yelp.

What makes this review even more repulsive than most is the fact that she blames the restaurant for her allergy.  Another person who failed to disclose important information that could've possibly killed her, and now it's the restaurant's fault.




I had the Brussel sprouts and blue crab grilled cheese my first visit here. Less than 2 hours after my meal here I break out in hives. The Brussel sprouts were tasty and had a good portion served. But the blue crab grilled cheese was what I was allergic too. 

I have an allergy to poor grammar.  M S must have been taught by Yoda.  "Taste the brussel sprouts had."

The owner wrote a very apologetic message to me and invited me to come back and give them another chance as they wanted to make it right. Though I honestly appreciate the gesture, my allergic experience was so bad it was enough to scare me away as I cannot potentially put my health at risk again by eating their food. I did recover but it took many days of antihistamine pills, and walking around with huge well which I still have scars from more than a month later. I've eaten she'll fish since then and everything has been all good. 

What a crackwhore!  So it's possible that she didn't know she was allergic to crab, but the fact that the owner stepped up to remedy the situation and she blames them is beyond me.  And if she had been "walking around with huge well" for a month, she wouldn't had scars, she would've had a bad back.  I'm glad she has recovered, but eating "she'll fish" wasn't the problem.  The problem was Blue Crab.

Thanks for your sincere apology and attention TLT, GREAT customer service which is why I'll give you 2 stars but I can't bring myself to return for the food.

I think TLT is getting the better end of this deal.  You don't need weirdos like her.  BUT, here's where I give TLT credit, they responded to M S on Yelp.  If you don't know, owners can reply to Yelpers to try to make the situation right.  Check out what the GM, Zach W., wrote:

Dear MS,
Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to hear that you have recovered from your allergic attack. Food allergies are a scary and could be a life threatening issue to deal with. The same day you ate here, we served several dozen Blue Crab Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and unfortunately, you were the only customer with any allergic or negative reactions. We have contacted Sysco Foods, the distributor of the product, and they received no similar cases or reports at the time. It is frightening when our bodies let us down, but publicly blaming the food or restaurant because you had an allergic reaction isn't right. If you need to blame us to feel better, go ahead. We're just happy you're back to feeling better. We have maintained an A rating since we've opened and constantly put a ton of attention and detail to proper health and safety practices. We strive to deliver a 5 star experience and it is important to know of any food allergies prior to dining so we can better serve you.
Best Regards,
Zach W.
GM, TLT Food

BRAVO ZACH!  BRAV-FRICKIN-O!  "...publicly blaming the food or restaurant because you had an allergic reaction isn't right."  You hear that M S?  It sucks that you had a reaction, but you should be thanking them either way.  Either you discovered that you have an allergy to Blue Crab, or you were too dumb to let them know that you're allergic to Blue Crab.  

I figured out what M S stands for... Majorly Stupid!

YOU GOT YELPED M S !!!

 Until next time... Server's don't pay their rent with compliments.

I hate Yelp. Any jerk can go on and slam a business with no accountability and based on nothing more than their opinion. Also Yelp sucks because they try to extort business' to pay them otherwise Yelp will put their negative ratings first and bury any positive reviews. The worst expression ever coined is "The customer is always right". It has just bred a society of spoiled, entitled, lacking in manners and common courtesy assholes.

Empty Restaurant Syndrome

When Charles Dickens wrote, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," he must have worked in a restaurant that used to be booming, but had come crashing to a halt.  Time cannot be crueler, than time standing still in an empty restaurant. I've noticed that restaurants have busy and slow seasons.  Yes, there are some restaurants that are busy 365 days a year.  Spago in Beverly Hills is one of those places.  But for the rest of us peons who couldn't get hired at one of the cash-cows, we work at places that suffer from great highs, and extreme lows.  When it gets close to tax time, my restaurant is slow.  When the holidays roll around, business picks up with parties and bosses acting like they care by paying for the company to have a 3-course meal. Right now I am in the midst of the slow season.  School just started.  Families are adjusting to their fall schedules.  Whatever!  This in turn has given me ample time to reflect on my life and how long I hav

You Got Yelp!!!

What better way to get through the work week than to pick on the people who's parents truly should have considered contraceptives before having sex, the people who write negative reviews on Yelp.com. As always, I have found someone who embodies the spirit of "douchebaggery."  Who alone, stands to make a mark on the world because he is THAT important.  (And by mark, I mean skid mark.) Scott B., from Beverly Hills, CA makes the list.  His review is short, direct, and abrupt, because he's "got places to go people!"  Here's what Scott had to say about one restaurant in Los Angeles: "If you have an unlimited amount of time and an equally unlimited amount of patience, than this place might be worth it."  It's nice to see that Scott was stepping out of his box to test himself on this theory. "If I ever indeed got serviced within the time frame I had to eat, I might chance the food again!"   Since Scott is obviously an alien, h

10 Ways To Get Better Service At A Restaurant

I have noticed that there are many variables that can lead to a bad dining experience, and for the customer to say that they received "poor service" has become cliche, and just the "go to" for when all things go bad in a restaurant.  Here is a Top 10 list to help customers have a positive experience the next time they dine out. 10.  SIT AT THE FIRST TABLE THE HOST GIVES YOU "This table's too round.  This table's too brown.  This table's just right."  You are not buying real estate.  So for you to pass on the first, then the second, and even the third table option the host gives you is beyond ridiculous.  The tables are all made the same, have four legs, four chairs, (if applicable,) and are strong enough to hold food, drinks, and purses.  And if you pass on a table, now you've messed up the floor plan that the host has prepared at the beginning of their shift, and everybody in the restaurant takes notice as you are aimlessly walking a
