New York may be one of the world’s greatest cities for dining out, but that doesn’t mean that every restaurant is up to par.

The number of restaurant complaints to the city's 311 call center rose for the second year in a row, the New York post reported.

There were 10,373 restaurant-related grievances called in during the fiscal year that ended June 30, an increase of 1,720 over the previous year.

The No. 1 complaint, registered by 2,832 callers, was seeing rodents, insects or garbage inside a restaurant, an increase from the 2,213 calls received last year.


There were nearly 1,000 complaints about spoiled food, 775 about bare hands touching food and 676 diners said they found a non-food object, such as plastic or hair, in their food.
