Diana Carrillo, 24, shared her experience on Facebook. Carillo, her sister and two other female friends ordered some drinks and were told by the waiter that they needed to prove they were “from here” before he would serve them.Absolutely inexcusable, that waiter needs a lesson in good customer service.
Carillo, whose parents are immigrants was understandably offended. Her friends were equally disturbed but at first, they were not sure if the waiter was joking. Turns out he wasn’t.
Saint Marc has fired the racist waiter and offered to donate 10% of the weekends profits to a charity of the women’s choosing. They were also invited back to the restaurant as VIP guests but they declined the offer.
Carillo decided on Orange County Immigrant Youth United to receive the donations.
