"Children crying or making loud noises are a distraction to other diners and as such, are not allowed in the dining room".
This is stated clearly on the restaurant's site and menus.
Terrific. Every decent restaurant should adopt this policy. Responsible, considerate parents take their children outside and calm them down. Good parenting starts at home. Good parents train their children at home around their own dining room or kitchen tables. Bad parents let their children grow up like weeds - doing anything they please. Bad parents think their children's tantrums and outbursts are just something the rest of us must put up with while trying to have dinner. Far too many people have had to politely ask offending parents to control their children on occasion. The parents are often surly as a result. Nobody tells them their precious children are doing anything wrong. One the other hand it is a pleasure to have dinner next to people who have guided and coached their children to behave in restaurants. I applaud this restaurant wholeheartedly. Others good restaurants have this policy, and the rest should adopt it as well.
