Is the customer always right? Well having a read of these stupid customer complaints shared by chefs on the ChefTalk forum we have to say we’d struggle to defend that pillar of customer service to the letter. These have to be some of the most ridiculous customer complaints we’ve ever encountered. Enjoy!
I had a guest order spaghetti last night. Complains to the server. No ... not flavour. It tasted great. Not portion size ... that was fine too. No ... my spaghetti is too short. I need to modify my menus so that guests know they're getting (and I quote) "Chicken noodle soup noodles instead of spaghetti." Apparently this man was offended by a 12" noodle. I'm guessing if I used a 24" noodle, he'd complain that his fork wasn't big enough to twirl it.

We often get the CPC – the Clean Plate Complainer. Eats everything and then says it was horrible.
I had two orders of Blackened Redfish returned because they were to dark and well done. People admitted to waiter they never had before?????
My Steak is too beefy/steaky tasting. I know steaky isn't a word, but that's what they said.
This Manhattan is too strong! Anyone that complains about a mixed drink being too strong needs to stick to beer.
My braised beef is too well done.
"I know I ordered raw oysters, but I didn’t know they were really raw ... I thought that was just the name, like raaaaw oysters."

Had a BLT thrown at me (I was 15) because it had tomatoes on it. When I explained what BLT stood for he screamed, "BULLSHIT!," and stormed out. I'm guessing that the world is a confusing place for him.

Your salsa is not watery enough and is too chunky, and your guacamole has too much avocado in it. Double facepalm.

I had a lady send back the Buffalo wings she ordered, because she got chicken wings not Buffalo wings.
