[NEEDS INPUT] [DO] No restaurant buff when NPC asks for date at restaurant

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.49.65
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? GTW, CL, GT, Dine Out, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Vampires, Bowling, Kitchen Stuff, Movie Hangout, Perfect Patio, Vintage Glamour.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know if this happens when your sims asks others out, it's been too long since my sim has done that. This does happen when npc asks your sim to eat out. It's happened both on dates and npc friends asking to go out to eat. Accept the invitation.
What happens when the bug occurs? You ask for a table, get seated. No buff. Order food. Still no buff. Npc at your table remains seated and eats like they normally should. Still no buff. When this bug occurs, maybe about 10% of the time the buff will show up at some random time (not connected to any events).
What do you expect to see? Get a restaurant buff while eating every time your sim dines out, from the beginning of the meal.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

This bug showed up after one of the patches, not sure which one, it might have been 2 patches ago. Got sick of dealing  with it. Sometimes if you reload a save before you talk to your dining companion and before you ask for a table, it fixes itself but most of the time reloading doesn't work. Removed mods folder and deleted cache.

Would you happen to have a description/picture of the buff you're referring to ?

@crinrict  The buff is the one that looks like a restaurant sign with knife and fork, it give plus to flirty when on a date and plus to happy when dining with non-dates.
