I had never eaten at Red Maple, but I had heard many good things about it.  My parents has eaten there several times and enjoyed it as well.  We went on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate my Grandma’s 82nd birthday.  It was really pretty busy.  I noticed the lazy suzan in the center of the table was covered in some sort of film and there was food on my husband’s chair and quite a bit under the table.  It was a bit unsettling, but since it was my Grandma’s birthday, I decided to just go with the flow.  I really wish I hadn’t.  Our meal was served alongside our order of pot stickers.  I grabbed one and poured some of the sauce onto my plate, dipped it and took a bite.  As I was went to dip it again, I noticed a fly marinating in my sauce.  I was mortified.  I immediately called the waiter who quickly whisked away my plate and apologized.  He came back and asked if we wanted them to recook the entire order or if we just wanted to cancel and leave without charge.  We wanted to leave as nobody was remotely hungry after the fly in my food.  As we had only consumed 6 soups and 5 sodas, I thought it was quite fair to not pay.  I ran outside to get some air while the rest of my family was still inside.  They came out a few minutes later and informed my they were forced to pay.  Forced to pay for fly-infested, uneaten food?  The manager also acknowledged to them he was aware they had a fly problem but hadn’t yet brought in an exterminator!!!  He also said the fly in my food was an accident and not their fault.  I guess it was my fault for having the poor judgment to eat there.  I did go back inside to complain about paying after we were told we didn’t have to and was told the waiter was mistaken and offered $20 to leave.  Horrifying experience.
