Leaving a scathing review is the best revenge you can have on a sucky restaurant. Maybe the waitress was giving you a side-eye or you clearly asked for medium rare and they gave you medium well. You can go home and sit your laptop on your lap while you are stuck on the toilet with food poisoning and tell the world your plight. According to Washington City Paper woman named Emma used her democratic right to leave this review of Nick’s Riverside Grill:
NEVER GO AGAIN！WORST SERVICE！I went there for happy hour and they hold my card at the bar. Charged me two drinks and more while I only ordered one hh drink. I asked the bartender, he said he didn’t have the right to change the bill and asked me to call the managerlater since he’s out. I called and they just said manager is really busy and will call me back. As u can figure, no call at all. And they post the charge without my signature! I didn’t sign the bill!! If u swipe my card wrongly for someone else, I’m not the one paying for it.
Nick’s Riverside Grill got a phone call about this review and felt it was wrongful enough that they needed to defend themselves:
…Out of compassion and being decent human beings we did not charge you a waste removal fee…The fact of the matter is you lost control of your bowels in the middle of our restaurant, and you proceeded to sit in it for the remainder of the evening, making more of a mess. We had to reroute our other patrons so they didn’t walk through your mess, causing quite a scene. You then proceeded to throw your underwear away in our trash can and our poor manager working that night was left to clean up your feces…We would be happy to refund your entire bill with the understanding you will never return to any of our establishments until you are potty trained.
The bartenders working when Emma was in the restaurant identified her using the picture next to the Yelp review. The owner had called the EMT and fire department to try to get her to leave the premises, but she refused. He also addressed the credit card incident, saying they had left a message but she did not answer. This meant war. Emma posted a response to the response.
…I just wanted to clarify that I’m just a dissatisfied customer who is now being accused by this establishment of being someone that I’m not, saying some very nasty things about me and also insulting this other girl who could potentially have serious health issues. I began to receive mean Yelp comments from strangers which is why I had to delete my Yelp review and Nick’s response…
She claimed to be wearing a completely different outfit and sporting a different hairdo than the pooper. There is no indication as to whether or not they have figured out the Emma dilemma, but one thing is for sure, it’s a real shitshow..
