Hi Forum, Been a chef for quite a while now and I have always had this debate over the years and wanted to see what everyone else does for this situation. When a customer asks for an entree or other menu item but asks to not be be served the normal sides that come with it does anyone here lower the price of the meal? I don't. I ask the servers to try and find something else they might like to go with the meal, but some people are just not that hungry or whatever the case is. Rarely does a customer complain that they were charged the full price but the servers are always asking me if they should deduct something off the bill, I say "No, it was their choice not to get anything else with it. I would be more than happy to send the rest of the plate in a box". Curious to see the responses on this situation. Thanks everyone! Happy cooking.
