‘Tis the season of love… and many choose to impress that special someone with a romantic dinner on February 14. Valentine’s Day is reportedly the second-busiest day for restaurants in America, next to Mother’s Day: In 2015, Americans spent about $7 million at restaurants. And the average cost of eating out this year will be anywhere between $87 to $287 per couple!

High expectations come along with a pricier meal, but what do people mostly complain about? Dirty tables, utensils, or restrooms at restaurants are among the top gripes of people when they are dining out, according to our exclusive national survey, even more so than complaints about food. The numbers below are the percentage of people highly annoyed with a specific gripe from the survey of 1,003 adults by the Consumer Reports National Research Center…
