I arrived around 4:30pm (well w/in the 6pm cut off to qualify for Happy Hour prices for $5 drinks & a $3 single appetizer).
When seated, I presented my waiter with a $40 Groupon Voucher. I was told the drinks ordered during happy hour would be charged $5 at the Happy Hour price, & charged to my final bill once the $40 Voucher credit was used up by regular full priced items. Full price Dinner entrees ordered ($10 + $18 = $28; leaving a $13 credit from the $40 Voucher). IE, I should have had a $13 residual credit to work with.
After my guest was seated, my waiter asked her for her drink order. I was absolutely out raged when my Waiter opened her menu DIRECTLY to the Category with the highest priced 'Specialty Drinks', rather than advising her of those available on Happy Hour; & just leaving it there. I do not feel it was correct of him to offer/lead her to the most expensive drinks - basically opening up a door for her, which I myself had not. I felt taken advantage of.
My 'Guest'? I did not personally know her - an invite out of Empathy. A woman cleaning herself up, fresh off of leaving an illicit life style; transitioning only a few months earlier off the Streets into a Public Assisted Shelter for women, & getting her life cleaned up. Granite, I invited her; but I also gave my Waiter my $40 voucher upfront asking to stay/near the limit.
When the Bill came; the total charges were $60 (not including gratuity), way over my limits. Both entrees together came to a mere $28.
I left the restaurant harboring resentment & regretful for my choices; since I my self do not have any money & was merely looking to use up the Voucher before it expired.
I would hope given the circumstances, that you would consider all the facts & make a consideration to refund a credit back to my debit card for any difference you feel might be fair/equitable. I do not want, nor would I use, a future credit or a gift cert.
Thanks for your consideration.
Please let me know vie email if you are at all willing to help. I DID not have that money to spend; I would have come alone, used the Voucher solely for myself w/in the $40 limit, & ordered a second entree to pack up upon departure for my freezer.
