Crying Child at a Romantic Dinner?
 
"The Nest" - Lake Arrowhead, CA / inside the Saddleback Inn

We nicely asked the owner if they could talk to a family when their
child at 8:15pm in a 4-star restaurant began to cry and scream non-stop
to go home. The owner refused to speak to the parents and instead asked
us to move. Because we were already through the first 2 courses, and
half a bottle of our own wine, we decided to move to a loud part of the
restaurant. The romance was ruined and I was upset! I refused
compensation, because the owner was in the wrong. When the $86 tab
came, she didn't even knock off the $10 corkage fee.

Did I miss soemthing here?

The proprietor should have compensated for the inconvenience.

Myself: I would have made a comment to the owners of the child.

Unfortunately, you were in a "no win" situation.
