I have, I think, seen at least some of the Gordon Ramsey series you mention, and I am also aware that the restaurant business is extremely competitive and difficult. Yes, there is a great deal that can go wrong, even if everyone is trying.
In this case, I do not believe the staff was trying very hard. The manager was a big, fat guy of uncertain grooming habits who apparently believed his job was chatting with the barmaid, the hostess (apparently his wife or consort) spent most of her time sitting on a stool near the cash register reading a tabloid paper, and someone who appeared to be the dining room manager, perhaps the daughter, spent most of her time with a cell phone glued to her head.
Constructive criticism? I doubt it.
Lest you think I am being harsh, from my point of view I pulling my punches. I could easily be much more descriptive, perhaps to the point of causing gastrointestinal distress, but gentleman that I am, I will forgo the pleasure.

I like to cook and am not very busy (usually), but sometimes I get a craving for something at a local restaurant that I know they do better than I can because they specialize in it and have the right equipment to do it, such as beer batter fish fry, pizza, wings, prime rib, etc.
