Spock actor Zachary Quinto was banned from the restaurant after the alleged tantrum

A restaurant in Canada put actor Zachary Quinto on social media on Saturday after he allegedly yelled “like an entitled child” and made a patron cry.

Manita, a Toronto restaurant that describes itself on Instagram as a “Mediterranean bistro,” took to Instagram Stories to call Quinto, 47, “an amazing Spock, but a terrible customer.”

“He yelled at our staff like an entitled child after not responding to two messages to let them know his table was ready and refused to believe that empty tables in the dining room were not available for him despite being politely informed that is being talked about. “, the restaurant wrote.

“It made our host cry and the rest of our brunch diners uncomfortable,” the restaurant continued.

“Mr. Quinto, take your bad vibes elsewhere, we have many wonderful celebrities joining us at Manita, but you are NOT one of them,” the restaurant concluded.

The “Heroes” star was in Toronto over the weekend celebrating his 47th birthday, according to posts on his own Instagram account.

“Thank you for such an incredible birthday adventure @canadaswonderland” Quinto captioned a photo at Canada’s Wonderland theme park. A video clip showed the “American Horror Story” alum descending the Drop Tower, a free-fall ride that lifts guests to the top of a 230-foot tower and drops them multiple times.

Quinto, who played Spock in the JJ Abrams-directed “Star Trek” films, previously opened up about having a problematic drinking habit in his 30s after rising to fame. In a March 2020 appearance on the “Life Is Short” podcast with Justin Long, Quinto described getting sober as the best decision for him and celebrated four years of sobriety that year.

Several media outlets, including KTLA, reached out to Quinto’s rep for comment but did not hear back.
