Is it OK for a resteraunt to google you in order to "personalise your dining experience"?

Asked by Lightlyseared (27327 points ) April 14th, 2014

According to the internet the maître d’ at the Eleven Madison Park googles customers to try and work out something about them like wishing them happy birthday when they arrive or pairing them up with a server who shares their interests.

So what do you think? Would this make your visit special or just creep you out?

For those who are narcissistic enough to presume their own importance, I suppose it would not be entirely unwelcome, as it would be to me and (apparently) to thee.

If I was presented by the maître d’ with personal information that I (or my fellow guests) hadn’t deliberately given the restaurant, I would punch him in the nose. Then sue him. Or whatever combination of those things that I could get away with. Certainly, I would never eat there again.
