Have You Ever Been Kicked Out of a Restaurant? (Or Just Walked Out?)

You may have read New York Times writer Ron Lieber's account of getting kicked out of a restaurant on Saturday night. The chef where he was dining was loudly berating his staff, and Lieber went into the kitchen to ask him to stop. After which the chef gave Lieber the boot. That got us talking here at SE about whether we had ever been kicked out. Have you ever been kicked out of a restaurant? (Lieber also mentions that he should have walked out when he first heard the chef yelling. Which brings me to another question: Have you ever walked out of a restaurant?)
