You write that 'you SAW them'
Meaning you didn't hear them. So they weren't being noisy or bothering you
I dont get the issue.

As long as the toddler was reasonably well behaved and quiet I don't see the issue.

Seeing children is disrespectful? Was the child well behaved?

what would be the problem OP? was the toddler having major tantrums, or behaving just normal 2yr old behavior?

No. It’s not disrespectful.

We eat out at upscale restaurants as a family with our young children. There's no adults only rule. If our kids are acting up or disturbing others, we either take the child out to calm them down or leave.
Not everyone can find proper babysitting and they shouldn't be banned from eating out.

Like the previous poster says. It’s disrespectful if you have a wild misbehaving child and continue sitting there.

So you think you were paying for an adults only experience?

My thoughts are even toddlers can enjoy high end food… also maybe the sitter canceled ?

No, and you’re selfish.

Go to a bar instead. No kids.

Lol. We were out in Entree last night when people came in with an infant and they got themselves seated and then started making a bottle and bottle feeding. I told my DH we better get out before they start burping the baby and she spits up all over us. We were right near them.

So I kind of know what you mean! When I see that baby I do wince a little. Like I'm finally away from the kids and just want a nice night out. Not a noisy family restaurant type of thing. And then I'm like Oh no, do I have to deal with someone else's meltdown. Whatevs. I really do understand them though. Sometimes ppl need to get out and can't get childcare. It is what it is.

Not a problem at all unless baby was screaming his lungs out. Hope you enjoyed. Parent's are allowed also to go out and have fun.

Oy, please tell me you're not for real! What a horrible attitude you have. So intolerant and immature. Oy.

Nobody like to hire a babysitter and go out with their husband for a nice, enjoyable evening just to find someone else's screaming, wild toddler seated near by.

That said, many toddlers are well behaved. (Mine were most of the time and on the rarest of occasions when they were being inappropriate for the environment, I took them outside until they were ready to return). Just the mere presence of a toddler should not in any way offend you or put you off.

I can’t even tell if you’re being serious or not….I hope not.
In case you ARE serious, good for that couple for making time together, even when there’s an infant! That’s really really hard to do!
