Just asking for a law suit?

My family and I went to a local restaurant this past friday in part because my parents had a gift certificate but also because the place was just purchased by my father's attorney and her family.

The food was ok [although my fettuccini alfredo was EXTREMELY oily and greasy...I know this dish is typically as such, but this was truly ridiculous, I left at least 2-3 tablespoons of oil behind when I packaged up my leftovers and I've drained almost as much both times I ate the leftovers - it was so large I could split my leftovers into two more meals, which was great] but the problem is that the onion rings ordered for an appetizer tasted extremely fishy, which fits because this is the Midwest and friday = fish fry, but they should really be cooking fish in a different fryer, for both vegetarians [which, I am one, but I've been one over half my life and have been "around the block" with this so I didn't partake in the onion rings for this very reason] and people who are allergic to fish. This wasn't a problem because my dad was the one who mostly wanted the onion rings and he was to order the fish dinner anyway.

I asked for vegetables to be added to my fettuccini and that this not include mushrooms. There were mushrooms in my food...I believe it was 6 or 7 all together, so definitely not a chance mistake of just one or two. I just picked them out because it wasn't that big of a deal to me, though annoying to have to do so. My mom and I discussed the fact that maybe the vegetables were all mixed together in a blend, which would be understandable but shouldn't the waitress have told me as such? And again, what if I were allergic to mushrooms?

Finally, while eating one portion of the leftovers I found not one, not two but THREE cashews mixed in. They have a stir-fry dish which has the option of adding cashews and or almonds. This wasn't a problem for me, again, but also again, what if I were allergic to nuts? It seems unwise to me that they are so careless about things like this. And especially ironic since it's owned by a lawyer! I intend to let them know about these concerns, hopefully before someone is really affected negatively.
