What if a menu item doesn't contain the main ingredient?

Lisa and I were in a small bistro on Sunday evening. To finish the dinner, we both ordered the passion fruit and mango creme brulee. The brulee was very good, but neither of us could detect the slightest hint of either passion fruit or mango. The waiter, having consulted the kitchen, swore that ‘3 ounces of passion fruit liquer’ were added. No mention of whether this was per serving, or for the whole batch.

So, what do we do? As I mentioned, this was still a fine desert, just not quite the one we ordered.

With the number of places to get good food, do we just not go there again? Or do we go back to a place that may not treat it’s customers as well as they could?
