I guess I wouldn't have hesitated to tactfully tell the maitre D' I didn't like everyone stopping by during my meal just to ask if everything was ok. It is his job to make sure I'm comfortable durring dinner. I'm sure it would have stopped. If they can remember my name, my drink, and how I like my steak cooked, I don't see why they wouldn't remember I didn't have to be checked on. But like pg said, some people like all the attention. Some even complain when every tom, dick, and harry from the captain down to the bottle washer dosen't stop by.
Just my 2 cents
