Have you ever walked out from a restaurant?
What was the reason?

 Yes when the wait was too long. But usually if you are not happy with something they discount your meal because they want your repeat business.

I have, because of waiting and waiting.  Also one time my daughter and I went to an irish pub, sat down, looked at the menu and left.

I have, once or twice! The reason was that we were seated and did not see anyone (server) take an order from us in more than 15 mins. That is unecceptable, if your going to seat someone, you should at least take their order in no longer than 10 mins. I understand you maybe busy but, if you don't have enough servers don't seat the people!!

Yes, because of bad service or when we looked at the menu and seen that the prices where way too high.  :sad1:

No, I never have, other than going into one and seeing how much $$$ it cost, we left immediately!

We have because the wait time went beyond what they told us.

There's only been a couple times I've walked out of a restaurant, and they were all due to extremely long wait times.

I've only ever walked out when the wait turned out to be far too long, not because of actual poor service.

Went to a Perkin's one time with some friends. We waited at our table for 10min before getting our drink order, ordered some mozzarella sticks when she took our drink order. Didn't see her again for another 15 min, some different waitress brought our drinks and took our food order. After one hour we finally got our cheese sticks (no drink refills) and asked repeatedly what the hold up was. Apparently the waitress who took our drink order quit and no one picked up her slack. We just left. Didn't receive our lunch or anything.
