Red Medicine resturant in Beverly Hills takes to Twitter to call out no-shows

A restaurant manager in Beverly Hills has had enough!

Noah Ellis, the owner/GM of Red Medicine, decided to out no-shows on the restaurant's Twitter page.

Check out tweets from  @redmedicinela  on March 24 and you will see posts like this: "Hi Kyle Anderson (323), I hope you enjoyed your gf's bday and the flowers that you didn't bring when you no-showed for your 815 res. Thanks."

"All the nice guests who wonder why restaurants overbook and they sometimes have to wait for their res should thank people like those below," reads another tweet.

 Ellis offered an explanation for his tweets to  Eater LA :

"The (epithet) who decide to no-show, or cancel 20 minutes before their reservation (because one of their friends made a reservation somewhere else) ruin restaurants (as a whole) for the people who make a reservation and do their best to honor it. Either restaurants are forced to overbook and make the guests (that actually showed up) wait, or they do what we do, turn away guests for some prime-time slots because they're booked, and then have empty tables."

What do you think about his decision to call out no-shows on social media?
