@CourtsBS: "SALT! Too much in everything & I won't be back"
@RDclark4: "Oversalted food is a sure fire turn off....no coming back from that!"
Chef Wong knows of what she speaks. Not only did she finish in the top four of her season of Top Chef - in her subsequent tenure as culinary producer of the show, she saw her fair share of cheftestants pack their knives and go home for the crime of insufficient seasoning.
6. Pasta that's a flop
@loves_zin: "Over cooked pasta"
@shirtlessjosh: "Wet pasta."
@local_kitchen: "Gummy pasta. And it happens so often. Al dente: it's not that hard, people."
7. Worst of all: service with a shrug
@fordgal15: "Slow service, cold food and dirty tables!"
@CozyHerbivore: "Service with attitude, a boring menu. So many great restaurants in Philly, why waste $$ on mediocre?"
@jenniferjnelson: "I won't go to restaurants in which management stands arms folded while staff, customers need things. Service starts at top."
@pinkleopardello: "Rotten service. If you don't like dealing with the public, maybe it's time to fulfil those dreams if becoming a tram driver"
@Unchainedfoodie: "Restaurant Turnoffs -- nasty restrooms, no server eye contact, long unbussed tables."
@NYTFridge: "Biggest restaurant turnoff is inattentive, unprofessional or sloppy service. Guarantees I'll never return."
@bosiechampagne: "Turnoff: When you can tell that nobody working there cares about the food or the service...or even wants to be there."
@newriversbeau: "Turnoff número uno: lazy, disengaged service. Doesn't need to be 'perfect', but apathy is the biggest sin."
