Twitter Shame for Restaurant Reservation No-Shows | NBC 7 San Diego
The next time you choose to make a reservation and not show up, you may want to think about the consequences at one Beverly Hills restaurant.
Red Medicine, a Vietnamese fusion restaurant off Wilshire Boulevard, used Twitter Saturday to shame at least seven customers who didn’t show up for their reservations.
Chef and owner Noah Ellis started off by posting: “All the nice guests who wonder why restaurants overbook and they sometimes have to wait for their res(ervations) should thank people like those below.”
Below that post, the names of those who did not honor their reservations appear.
“I hope you enjoyed your gf’s(girlfriend’s) bday and the flowers that you didn’t bring when you no-showed for your 8:15 res. Thanks.”
Red Medicine’s revenge tactic received mixed reviews. One Twitter user, @Justin_Ot, responded by supporting Ellis’ actions.
“If more restaurants did this, people might be more respectful. It’s like reverse Yelp.”
