Well at least we finally got a reaction and an update on why this issue is taking you guys so long to fix. It's good to know that you are aware of the problem and trying to find the reason. I hope you can solve it.
So I am going to try this work around as long as the problem exists. Thank you for the update, Nick.
I don't think it was meant to, but good to know. I haven't played my restaurant save yet since the patch. Given what Nick said, unfortunately, it probably won't get fixed for a while...if at all.
This is STILL a problem. It's been forever and I was hoping the most recent patch would address the issue. Any solutions yet, guys?

Guys don't despair anymore. There's a mod to fix the problem. I haven't tested it yet but hopefully it works. Here it is: More realistic restaurant at ModTheSims
thank you very much for sharing the link. I will try this mod and i hope it works too.
And if it works the EA have no excuses to solve the problem; another time somebody else did the EA work.
I prefer to play without mods but the EA doesn't give us any other chance.
Been watching this for a while. I discovered the mod myself last night, and it worked surprisingly well.
However, about the 4th day of running the restraunt, my game came to a screeching hault.
Will continue further testing.
YOU GUYS!!!!!! HAVE YOU SEEN THE PATCH NOTES TODAY??? I'm so happy I could cry!
Thank you, @SimGuruNick!
