A restaurant called a would-be diner an "epic tool" and a "moron" after they posted a negative review on TripAdvisor .
It also mocked their clothing following the one star review.
Bosses at Wallfish Bistro in Bristol responded to reviewer Jeff P after he complained about a "rude" waitress which told his group all tables were booked.
Jeff P left a one star review – sparking fury from the restaurant who also branded him a "moron".
The party hadn’t booked a table for Sunday lunch at the eatery, which is on a site occupied by late TV chef Keith Floyd’s bistro in the ’70s and ’80s.
Jeff P’s review said: “We arrived on a Sunday lunchtime.
“Asked the chef if they were open he said yes, we sat at an empty table and waited for the server to arrive.
“When she did, we had that horrible ‘have you booked’ conversation… The server was so rude and made us fell (sic) so awkward,” he added.
He then told how diners at a table nearby said they were just leaving and said they were welcome to sit there.
He added: “But we were just left hanging, not knowing if we could stay or not.
“At no time did she ask us to leave, so we had to ask her if we could eat there or not.
"She just glared at us like we had walked into her home uninvited and made the situation even more awful than it needed to be.
"We will not be returning."
Wallfish Bistro tweeted a screenshot of the review and slammed Jeff P.
They wrote: "So this epic tool works fast.
“Being open doesn’t in any moron’s world mean that the only available table is yours to put your horrorshow cagoules on to.
“This was from today. He must have been frothing with anger to move so swift. Liberty just said we were full!”
Last month, Wallfish owners Seldon Curry and Liberty Wenham announced it was closing and put the business up for sale.
