We supplied products to David's restaurant since December.  In January when bills were not paid we emailed him for payment.  He sent us back an email how offended he was that there were no financial issues and that he did not want anyone thinking there were financial issues with his restaurant and that he'd pay us.

4 weeks later, not a penny was received.  After entering his name on Google we found out his father stole $1 million dollars from a restaurant in Florida.  Like father, like son.  He had no intention of paying us, and our bill was only $975.00 and dated back to December.  He kept stringing us along.   Beware of this con man.

Patience is a Vulture

AUTHOR: Ice Cream Guy - (United States of America)

You've heard the saying Patience is a Vulture... well in this case that stands to be very true.  Jad I just had more patience I would have learned that I was totally wrong in the opinion I formed of this man.  Payment in full was received and I forget that when I worked in busy restaurants there is a process for paying invoices, and sometimes from the time the delivery person drops an order and leaves an invoices, that invoices doesn't make it to the accounts payable person.  It happens all the time in large chain restaurants.  It's just a flaw in the system.  That's what happened here, but I am happy to say that we did receive payment in full, and the restaurant had no intention on not paying us.  The restaurant seems to be doing very well, and I have seen that when new restaurants open, and do as well as this restaurant is from the start, sometimes it takes everything you have to make sure the guests are being taken care of first and foremost.

I understand that and appreciate that, and wish this team the utmost success.  I know they well continue to do well and I do retrack my statements made just yesterday on this site.

In fact, to show that I am not being someone with double standards,  the next time I am in Laguna Beach, I am taking my wife and kids there for dinner - - as you should too!
