Unfortunately, this subject presents a delimma for us servers. The rules of fine dining say that we should wait until everyone at the table has finished eating, then clear the entire table at one time. Most of the time I wait. But some people, like you, want the plate cleared as soon as you are finished. Because there is no way for us, as servers (and complete strangers)to know about your preference, all you have to do is ask to have the plate removed. No problem. Our goal as servers is to do what we can to make sure you are comfortable and happy.
