  • Usually if I'm at a restaurant, it's either with my girlfriend, my family or friends. I'm a very patient person and don't mind waiting till my food arrives as I can pre-occupy my time with having conversations to the person (s) I'm with! It's understandable restaurants will sometimes get really busy or an employer may mess up on an order so I don't take it to heart. I would find it inexcusable if they don't update me on the progress of the order if it gets delayed.

    The longest I've waited in a restaurant was 2 hours but that's understandable with a group of 30 people during my stepbrother's wedding dinner! With just a 2 person meal though, an hour and half was the longest I've waited because the waitress forgot we ordered so she gave me and my girlfriend a 50% discount for the wait. It's up to the person what they find to be too long but I'm sure most people wouldn't tolerate more than an hour at most depending on how busy the restaurant is.

  • I'd say I get anixious after a half hour and want to ask about my meal in an hour after that we would be getting into walking out territory

  • If I'm waiting an hour without any food at all, I'd get annoyed.

  • I've known it to be above 60 min when the place was full. That was during the week end, when I was not in a hurry and having a good chat with friends or family.

  • Generally the longer you wait, the bigger arsewhole you are, so if it's 20minutes, you are OK they like you, but if it's thirty five, the waiters don't like you Because you maybe an arsewhole.

  • I'll wait up to 20 minutes if it's a good restaurant, And I'll wait up to 40 minutes if it's one I really like and I'm on a date. Anything longer than that is too long.

  • I waited around almost 40 minutes at a Denny's one time; and the place was almost empty. Bad service, but no big deal.
