Clanking dishes, pots and pans! Even if it is only when the kitchen door opens. It harms conversation, therefore taking away from the ambiance.
How often are you sitting in your car becoming irritated only to realize the reason why is that the musice you have on is not enjoyable. Sometimes it can take you quite a while to figure it out because you may be speaking with someone while driving. I believe dining is very similar. You often don't relize that the noise is bothering you at the time. You just don't return.
Suggestion: Double doors. When the server enters the first and the door closes behind him, so does the noise.
