always with a cup of coffee....yummy

Suppose you have planned a lovely dinner date with your significant other at a restaurant which is very fancy and top-notch. You are so excited and want this to be the perfect place to propose :). You go in and are seated and everything feels perfect!
Until, you have a young couple seated next to you and they decided to bring in their baby with them.  After half hour, the baby starts crying and disrupts the peaceful atmosphere for you and your date.  
Your reaction: UPSET AND ANNOYED!
Parents Reaction: SORRY, but this happens!

Now, the parents are trying their best to make the baby quite and to avoid any annoyed glances and upset murmuring from the rest of the people there. They didn't imagine the night would turn this way. They thought lets take the baby along with us, so this way they can spend more time with baby and all of them enjoy the same surroundings and build memories.

The above story is sort of real, (ie the situation is real, few of the characters in the  story are hypothetical)
The reason I write about this, is because recently something like this happened at a very high end restaurant and the Chef of that restaurant tweeted: 
Grant Achatz @Gachatz
Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad. Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but..

After this tweet many followers wrote back supporting the chef, while few didn't agree with this tweet. 
I want to know, would you agree with this tweet and feel like the parents made a mistake taking their baby to this fancy restaurant, or these type of "so called rules" are not fair for parents to enjoy the same fancy restaurant as they have a baby now?

What to do you feel...should there be clear rules for fancy restaurants that publicize "NO KIDS ALLOWED"?
