7. Red flag: The errors keep coming
It’s human to make mistakes, but its our duty to learn from them. So, although restaurants are very busy places, and errors can happen anytime, if things go wrong again and again—and again and again—this may be a sign something isn’t quite right behind the scenes.
“Servers are human, and an error or two can occur, especially if the noise level makes it hard to hear each other,” Meléndez says. “But if you order one appetizer and receive another, or simply never get it at all, while your entrees also got mixed up, this is a flag that service may not be up to snuff.”
