Wolfgang Puck -- Tonight's Special ... A Settlement!

11/8/2010 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A dinner at one of Wolfgang Puck's restaurants might set you back a few hundred bucks -- but one patron actually came out ahead nearly five figures after settling a lawsuit with WP's company.

As we first reported, a woman sued Wolfgang after she claims she slipped and fell at Spago back in 2007 -- blaming it on "an overly slick finish on its wood floor."

Seems the two sides finally came to an understanding -- a settlement was filed in L.A. Superior Court last month, with the woman receiving $9,999.00 for her troubles.

That should buy her a lot of nice dinners at Sizzler.

Absolutely ridiculous. People need to start taking responsibility for themselves. Would she have slipped if she were wearing tennis shoes? Doubt it. But I'm sure she was wearing heels where there is about two square inches of shoe surface touching the ground.

I completely agree with Poster #1. If you sneeze in a restaurant, sue them? That's next. It's gotten this ridiculous.

If they had gourmet pepper that made you sneeze..well, yeah. (-:

I also agree with Posters 1 & 2 This crazy lawsuit stuff is way outta hand. It is occasionally warranted, but not if your coffee is too hot or you can't walk straight, etc.....
