Apparently the crazy bitch also wrote a fake review on Yelp defending herself:

Quote:
Dr V.

Santa Monica, CA
USA

Such hatred and animosity, and so many fake reviews from people who have never even eaten there but only heard about the place on tv.

What's really so bad about it?

They have frozen raviolis? Most restaurants utilize frozen food a lot more. Almost everything at ABC is made from scratch and they use quality, organic ingredients.

They take the slow food approach rather than zapping everything in a microwave? Who the hell goes to a bistro for fast food?

Are the owners vile and evil for demanding competence in their employees? That restaurant's floor is cleaner than most people's dining room tables. Would people the restaurant rather take on the industry norm of employing illegals and jerk offs who cut corners as much as they can?

The customer is not always right. It's one thing to criticize a dish because it lacks authenticity, the ingredients are sub par, the dish's execution is abysmal...and another to critique a dish simply because one didn't "like" it in expectation of a freebie....people should know what they like and order accordingly. That's common sense. Likewise, I fail to see the merits of someone without an understanding of certain foods attempting to argue about them and to be taken seriously. Contrary to popular belief, not every opinion is valid, especially one that is not well informed. I applaud the owner for telling those kind of people off.

As for the tip debacle.... it's refreshing to see restaurant staff doing their job because they're paid to do it, not in expectation of a tip. I also wonder if people realize how hard it is to find good workers for a restaurant. Should they just hire illegals like Ramsay's Vegas joints do?

The fake reviews on here are exactly the kind of infantile cyber bullying the owners complained about on tv.

What I will say is this, the owners are perfectionists and the impeccable attention to detail at their restaurant makes it very clear. They're also extremely genuine people, what you see is what you get, if they make a real mistake they own up to it...if they're right, they'll defend themselves. Crazy? I call it normal. Should Samy have to apologize for not being brought up in a culture where people are taught to pander to the lowest denominator like we're all on the short bus? I think not!

As far as the tv show goes, the guests portrayed on tv get reservations knowing it's for the filming of Kitchen Nightmares and thus are extra picky and or want to say something guaranteeing them some airtime. Keep in mind that episodes are edited and what makes the final cut isn't an honest portrayal, but rather what makes good airtime...The show is called "Kitchen Nightmares" so what kind of slant do you expect?

I also have to say, I've eaten at other restaurants Ramsay has "helped" and his changes drove them to the ground. He had an Italian and a Greek restaurant Americanize their menus and the outcome was for from spectacular. He gutted another's iconic decor and old skool menu and drove more customers away once the short term trendiness factor wore off. What I'd love to see on Kitchen Nightmares is an episode on some of Ramsay's Vegas joints!

But as far as Amy's Baking Company goes, the pizzas are amazing and more than fairly priced considering the quality you're getting... Does slow food take time? Sure...if you want go to a bistro/patisserie expecting fast food you're not qualified to review the restaurant......Some of the toppings seem off, like pears and prosciutto, pork and apples, or mango and chicken, but it takes a real chef to pull a combo like that off, and ABC does it. But what takes the cake...ehem...literally! Is their vegetarian pizza...light, fresh, each quality ingredient stands out, and incorporates all the flavors of the Mediterranean from France to Lebanon...a sea of flavors in each bite....

Haters can hate, but the restaurant's quality speaks for itself....it's around regardless of the haters for a reason! Most of them just seem like immature individuals throwing tantrums because the owners of ABC don't pander to mediocrity....which the haters apparently identify with.

Wife orchestrates it. She is probably in the dark on it as well as being in the dark on her being a terrible cook as the husband shielded her from the criticism/send-backs.

Even if the wife orchestrated it, the Husband agreed to it. If the husband has the balls to say "don't call the cops" then he probably has the balls to say "don't call the show".
