A lesbian couple out for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner got some homophobia with their Hibachi – and one took to Facebook to put the restaurant and the chef on blast.

Ellie Parker and girlfriend Lucy were in the mood headed to Asahi Japanese Steakhouse in Lafayette, Indiana, where they got a rude awakening from a nosy, homophobic chef:

The post reads:

I’m not normally one to complain on social media, but the service I had at dinner tonight warrants a little complaining. I took my girlfriend out to Asahi, in Lafayette, for our first Valentine’s Day together. Our chef came to grill our food for us and was asking everyone if the person with them was their boyfriend or husband. He got to my girlfriend and I and asked where our valentines were.

We told him we were each other’s valentines. We were holding hands mind you. Clearly a couple. He proceeds to say “well it is legal, but it’s such a waste to not have a man.” Later he continues to insult our relationship by saying he could come home with us to “heat things up.” I am appalled that I would receive this kind of treatment. I cannot believe I paid over $50 to have my relationship insulted and sexualized.

A swell way to spend Valentine’s Day, huh? The couple was unamused, and left the following message on their receipt:

Grub Street reports that the restaurant offered them a refund, but only if they took down the Facebook post, which has gotten over 7,000 shares.

We’re assuming she didn’t take the payoff, since the post is still up. As per Yahoo, a Facebook page for the restaurant has been deactivated since the story went viral.

We hope the negative attention taught the restaurant a lesson about respecting gay relationships and generally not being homophobic idiots.
