MANAGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS
This first tip may sound obvious, but people often overlook it, especially after hearing previous customers either raving or complaining about a restaurant. I always try to set my expectations low, then if the restaurant underwhelms, I won’t despise the place.
If you’re in a restaurant that has a large or fancy-worded menu, don’t be afraid to ask questions about it! You certainly don’t want to regret ordering food that contains ingredients you’re allergic to. Also, asking about the menu can test a waiter’s understanding of and passion for the food they serve. This is important in determining whether a restaurant should be labelled a “must-visit” based on the knowledge of the staff, whose proficiency should also provide some measure of reassurance that the food you’re about to order is up to scratch. them. Who knows, they might show their gratitude by giving you something extra that’s not on the menu.
