WARNING: Poor Service Will Kill Your Restaurant's Future
It's the number one complaint! Poor service is word of mouth on steroids!
In today's world every customer has a HUGE voice online. You can't afford to have bad service at your restaurant that gets broadcast via Yelp, Facebook & foodie blogs.

What They Have To Say...
"It's about me, the small guy, not Big Chain problems..."
As a small neighborhood establishment, in a strip mall, it is hard to find answers that are about me (my small but mighty Bistro). Each time I read RR, I find that much of it is about subjects that effect me, the small guy, not Big Chain problems.
