Back when my wife and I would visit Las Vegas several times per year, our favorite restaurant was (if I remember the name correctly) Michael's at the Barbary Coast. Does anyone know if that restaurant, and or chef, are still in business somewhere?

Does this happen to you at restaurants when eating out.
After a delicious dinner, you sit back full and satisfied and think about what you are doing next such as a movie ect.
You are ready to get up and leave but you need to pay the bill and tip.
So you wait for the bill, and wait, and wait, and wait.
I recently waited 15 min before I got the managers attention to get a bill. ugh.

If they bring the bill while you are still eating, do you feel like you are being rushed?

I'm no fine diner, but I thought there's some sort of signal that you are ready for a bill (put your napkin on the table?).

This is actually something that used to drive me nuts. I now have a habit of including "also please bring me the check" when what I feel will be my last request is filled. For example, if we were to order dessert then I will ask to have the check prepared when dessert arrives. Or, "we'll have one more glass of wine and also please bring me the check".

I will get up from the table and stand at the receptionist's area if I have to. It becomes clear then that you might just walk out the door and this wakes up people.
