Customer Left In Shock As San Francisco Restaurant Charges Dine-In Fee
There is no doubt that you will have seen some crazy fees if you’ve ever checked your receipt after dining in a restaurant. However, Che Fico, located at 838 Divisadero St in San Francisco recently caused a storm after a dine-in fee was spotted on the bottom of the check.
Customers know that they will pay for food and prices are displayed on the menu, so despite some people thinking that a pizza is too expensive, it couldn’t really be any more obvious how much you are expected to pay. However, if you plan to eat in a restaurant, surely patrons do not expect to be charged an extra fee for doing so.
As you can see in the image, the 10% fee has been added to the total. This is before the customer has tipped their server.
Thankfully, in October, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 478, also known as the junk fee ban, which will become state law on July 1, 2024. However, until this date restaurants across the state will be allowed to charge whatever fees they think are reasonable.
