“Mr. Quinto, take your bad vibes somewhere else, we have many lovely celebrities join us at Manita but you are NOT one of them,” the restaurant wrote. Zachary Quinto


Quinto also allegedly “refused to believe the empty tables in the dining room weren’t available for him despite being politely informed they were spoken for.”

Manita said Quinto made a host cry while other diners in the small establishment became “uncomfortable” over his apparent outburst.

“Mr. Quinto, take your bad vibes somewhere else, we have many lovely celebrities join us at Manita but you are NOT one of them,” the restaurant wrote.

In the caption of their post, Manita said Quinto is not the first “irate guest” to have “taken their frustrations out on our staff.”

“To all the other Zachary Quintos out there, on behalf of restaurant workers everywhere: We aren’t above criticism, but we are above being demeaned,” Manita concluded.

Quinto has not commented publicly on the incident. The actor’s representatives did not respond to Global News inquiries.

He appeared to be visiting Manita for a meal on his birthday. According to Quinto’s Instagram stories, the actor had earlier travelled to Canada’s Wonderland with friends and thanked the park for an “incredible birthday adventure.”

That evening, he also uploaded a photo of himself dining inside another nearby Toronto restaurant, the ever-popular cocktail hotspot Paris Paris. Quinto was pictured sitting in front of a dessert with a candle, looking extra grateful with his eyes closed and his hand over his heart.

In the comments of Manita’s post, hordes of Torontonians praised the restaurant for sticking up for their employees.

“Finally, a company standing up for their staff,” one commenter wrote. “This happened to me at my previous workplace and instead of sticking up for me, they let me go to avoid ‘bad press.'”

“Good for you, being a ‘celebrity’ shouldn’t strip you of your basic manners and how to treat other human beings,” chided another.

Global News reached out to Manita for comment, but has yet to receive a response.
