Toronto restaurant calls out reservation no shows in social media campaign

Dec 5 2016, 1:16 pm

Who wouldn’t be perturbed when expected dinner guests don’t show up for dinner?

It’s rude. And Toronto restaurants have had enough.

That’s why Toronto’s Farmhouse Tavern has launched an initiative trying to combat no-shows and last minute cancellations.

Remember: if your dinner plans have changed for tonight let the restaurant know! #restaurants #smallbiz

The public awareness campaign has already garnered hundreds of likes and comments from supporters that range from the empathetic: “…It’s just common courtesy…” to the alternatives: “Why not do what hotels do… charge no shows a fee”

It’s your move fellow dining denizens.

Respect the restaurant or be prepared there may come a day when you have to leave a credit card number when you call.
