Review updated:

This is an unfortunate story about what happened this afternoon.

My wife and I went to a Starbucks at Georgetown, Washington, DC to get an iced coffee. I gave a cashier a $5 bill and a $1 additionally because my wife wanted to have some quarters for a parking meter. I didn't realize at first, but the cashier gave me the change but it was $2 short. She might have got confused because I gave her one more dollar for some more quarters. Anyway, we went back there and asked this middle aged guy working at the counter to give us back the two dollars. This guy wiped out his smile in no second and threw the 2 dollars to me. And then he slam shut the cashier ### about something. We just didn't want to make a scene there, so decided to get out pronto without confronting him.

Just wanted to share our unfortunate event with any of you.

Thanks.

    I forgot to use my phone to order the drinks. I kept the receipt. I would like to be able to add these drinks to my account so I can get the stars. Why isn't this possible?
    I like that I can add a receipt after purchase for other companies. Starbucks should make this an option.

    The Starbucks located at City Center Square at 1100 Main in Kansas City Missouri, refuses to serve blacks. I was ignored when I entered the store and told they don't serve coons. I will never enter a Starbucks store again. This is s White's Only establishment.

    A barista at Issaquah Highlands Starbucks (19354) named Denise was incredible rude and demeaning to a fellow worker then turned to her customers and pretended to be nice. WOW. Her true colors really showed through while talking to her fellow co-worker. What a two faced snake! It totally ruined by coffee experience!

    I remain a Starbucks shareholder, but no longer a customer of this store. 5 people behind the counter so busy chatting with one another that I waited some 7 minutes (the only customer waiting) and then couldn't even get their attention to find out what the hold up was. I walked out w/o my tall cappuccino.

    The store on 3rd Avenue near East 43rd street, Manhattan, New York.
    The barista said absolutely no word, no hello, nothing, and no smile.
    The coffee I got was luke-warm.
    I am sorry but I will never go back there again.

    If you are a working person or contractor you can count on being ostracized by not just the employees but also by the entitled customers you see in any Starbucks. And your food is horrible too.

    We won't be buying from Starbucks from now on until the manager is reinstated.
    The race card is being used against even strongly liberal companies like yours and every time they win it perpetuates this stupidity.
    This is mob rules.

    Tables at Starbucks on Terminal 1 were not cleared, when I asked who was in charge of clearing the tables
    This was the response

    Once my colleague's finishes tidying up the display mugs she will clear them 😳

    Wouldn't except a 100 dollar bill. Was the only money I had. Being a popular coffee shop, doesn't make sense why they wouldn't have change for a hundred. Waited in a long line to get get rejected by cashier.

    The menu board shows a price lower than the register. The venti white mocha on the board shows 5.25 but, the register rings up 5.45 this is consistent at all Starbucks at IAH airport. On my receipt 298828 Erica was my server. Date of service was aug 3, 2017 at 536am check number 8697 store location id is IAHSTA12. My email is [email protected]

    This is for the starbucks in Jackson Memorial hospital in Miami. I felt so belittled waiting for my coffee. Marcus and this other young lady with long red braids were on. they skipped me to serve other customers as if I was invisible. This is wrong. I ended up leaving without my coffee. Please maybe they need to be trained again.

    There are white flakes at the bottom in a sealed bottle. I contacted starbucks but they didnt ask for upc or product type. It was obvious they were not going to look into it. Ingredients are water and coffee so i thought it could be contaminated. Beware of buying their drinks if this is how they handle defective products. I have a picture attached

    She was very rude for no reason and I asked for the pastry to be heated and it wasn't. She was extremely unpleasant. You may want to have a mystery customer try her services to see for yourself.

    Some Starbucks have the music on too loud which drives people away. If that is the corporate intents so more seat are available, then I will continue to go to Peets or Brew HaHa. The choice of music is bad in general...

    I also own 50, 000 shares of Starbucks stock, which I can dump if there is no action.

    Al Shaya Discount ID has some technical issues when swiped. The manager of Aspire Park Starbucks didn't even try to do manual entry in the system. Its not our fault that system didnt work. They should have a workaround in this kind of issue and should give importance for their customers. date: 7 Feb @ 9:30PM. Inconsiderate manager

    i will no longer stop at Salinas, Starbucks on North Davis road. They do not allow customers access to the restroom. Can not imagine what the situation was that caused this but certainly there has got to be a better fix. Thank you for you attention to this matter

    My wife and I don't care for your new open lids for ice latte drinks, especially when you are trying to travel, the liquid comes out on the lids. What happened to the lids that had a flap covering the opening. By the time I got home the liquid was all over my shirt and pants. Very poor new lid.

    Hi .. this is the third time in 10 days that I visit Starbucks ( Queen Alia Airport / arrivals building ) branch and ask for mocha frappuccino and they say it's out of stock. That's the only drink I order and I don't understand how come all other branches in Amman have it but they don't.

    I stopped going to Starbucks "completely". The rude behavior and sarcastic back talk was enough for me to say, "no more"! Forcing customers to wait, wait and wait was beyond reasonable. Anyone wanting dates, times and names, let me know.

    I went up to ask about my latte and staff was quite rude. first they pretended I wasn't standing right in front of them. Then she was snotty when I asked about the status of my latte. This occurred beginning at 3:06 PM at the red Bluff antelope store.

    Ivy, the GM, harasses customers based on religion. She won't let people who want to be Christian speak quietly among themselves. She's on the rampage. Starbucks should end her employment.
