Way to go for the waiter and the restaurant. It looks like a swanky Italian, which in my experience means they are really nice people. I used to take my kid outside when he played up and ask him if he wanted to go home or sit with the grown ups and he always calmed down, from the age of 1 I could take him anywhere. Just a tip for any new parents. All kids play up, special needs or not but you don't do that.

Clue: If you're a non-nice individual, you tend to get non-nice responses.

I`ve never agreed with the proposition that `the customer is always right`.

Sometimes the customer is an asswipe, and should be treated accordingly.

Of course, my tendency to treat them accordingly is the reason I don`t have a job where I deal with the public. 98% of customers are either great or tolerable.

Dealing with the other 2% just wasn`t worth it.

Gerry1of1-"So if a waiter doesn't like what you say, even if no one around you is offended, he can throw you out."

That`s not what happened here. The waiter refused to serve them. The rude asswipes decided to leave rather than ask for another server.

The OWNER can throw them out. Every single server can refuse to server them.

Gerry1of1-"Suppose he doesn`t like your pro-Obama button?"

He can opt not to serve you.

Gerry1of1-"Or pro-Romney tshirt?"

He can opt not to serve you.

Gerry1of1-"No, if you haven`t bothered the other customers the waiter is there to serve food."

Hey, he bothered the server. That`s enough.

It`s a JOB. Not indentured servitude. He can refuse to serve you for any reason whatsoever. But, if he does it for arbitrarty reasons, he will lose his job.

In this case, the owner backed him up. Rightly so.

"It is up to the waiter's discretion to serve them. "

So if a waiter doesn`t like what you say, even if no one around you is offended, he can throw you out.

Suppose he doesn`t like your pro-Obama button? Or pro-Romney tshirt? What if he doesn`t like your religious referance? No, if you haven`t bothered the other customers the waiter is there to serve food. If he wants to be a judge of society let him become a judge or preacher or politician.

Draculya-"it depends on how the kid was behaving"

I agree, it has nothing to do with dissability.

I cancelled an order and walked out of a restaurant once because a 5 year old (with no appearant problem) decided go into one continuous scream at the top of her lungs, and her parents thought the appropriate way to handle it was to ignore it.

The restaurant was in a mall, and we could still hear the child screaming from 200 feet away.

At least 5 groups of people either walked out without eating, or turned around before even going in.

First, the parents should have disciplined and/or removed the child.

Secon, the parents deserved an asswipin for being horrible parents.
