An error message ‘Oops, an error occurred’ appears when some users try to log on to the app. It seems like the outage has affected only some users as others are able to access the app, even after logging out and then logging in.

Documenting on Instagram what’s on your plate seems to be the order of the day. But what do these chefs think when patrons whip out their phones and photograph the food?

Michelin star chef Marco Pierre White

“Everyone goes to restaurants for different reasons — some go for the ambiance, some for the name on the door, some to click pictures of the food. I go to restaurants to be fed. As it is, chefs spend so much time making dishes look pretty, that by the time the food reaches the table, it’s tepid. Enjoy the food, not your phone.”

“I see no harm in people Instagramming their food before eating. It’s far less harmful than being glued to your phone through out the meal. Also it’s free marketing for restaurants.

"People who use their phone during dinner, well that is rude. No message will end the world if you don’t check it whilst eating. I don’t use social media much and don’t see how it’s had any adverse effect on my life. I’m just fine, thank you.”

Chef And Restaurateur Floyd Cardoz

“Everyone’s dining experience is their own. If someone wants to Instagram their food, I do not have a problem with it. I love taking pictures of my food, I love recording what I have eaten — it helps me remember any credible dish I have had. I think people should do it, as long as they don’t use the flash and disturb other guests. You’re paying for it, you can do what you want. Taking pictures of what we have eaten have become a big part of how we live. I want my guests to have a good time.”

“I am not much of a social media person, but I have to admit I like Instagram. You see some amazing food pictures and videos on it. I think I am no one to judge whether it is rude or reasonable, that is for the other people on the table to decide. As a chef and host of the restaurant, I have no problem with it. They want to capture the beauty of their plate, I consider it as a compliment.”

“This is obviously the trend of this generation and I believe it’s one of the best ways to connect, showcase and communicate. This is an idea that one should embrace looking at the numerous advantages around it rather than some of the annoying factors. Like everything, social media has its pros and cons. However, I feel the pros outweigh the cons. Using your phone on the table is reasonable as long as it’s used only to take a picture. Beyond this, it is just rude.”.
