I have never had any problems. It saves them having to write down all the things that you can't have. Mine are Gluten, Night Shade veggies and mushrooms so not overly difficult. I have, on occasion, have a chef come out of the kitchen just to double check things with me. Sometimes it is to assure me that he is preparing my, whatever, on a foil covered cookie sheet so it is not exposed to other things. I have never had a problem. I think in general the kitchen and serving staff want to help. Caution, best to NOT go somewhere during their busiest time of day because then it is more difficult for them to be compliant.
