You thought some of the signs of a good restaurant were

: (being) greeted at the door.
McDonalds has a policy called the "2 Metre Rule" meaning whenever a member of staff is within 2 metres of a customer, they should smile and greet them. I often greet customes as they enter the store. What about when you are served? Are you not met with a smile and a cheerful greeting?

: Sat down
I'm sure if you are old enough to rabble on as you do, you are quite capable of sitting on a chair without assistance.

: Asked to review a menu, not have to worry about the millions of people behind you chucking a snot because you can't decide.
Are you not provided with clear and consise menu boards which are able to be seen from quite a distance. There is no need for you to stand in line if you wish to read the menu.

: Be able to talk to your friend or partner without incessant noise.
So by this you mean that any other restaurant with McDonald's high volume of customers is silent? I'm afraid the last time I dined at an expensive restaurant, there was as much noise as in my McDonald's store.

: Be able to see how your chef cooks your meal, not catch glimpses of someone hopefully not reheating your burger in a microwave, you hastily applying the grill marks to the Grilled Chicken Burger. (heh)

McDonald's restaurants are designed specifically so that you can view exactly how your burger is made. Peer into the kitchen, you're meant to. I'm sure you will find that everything is satisfactory. I can't recall ever being able to see how my food was cooked at a more expensive restaurant anyway! Unless you go to a Japanese grill, your chef could have scraped the meat from a bin and spat in it for all you know. By the way, it is a common misconception that the grill marks were applied after the cooking process.This is false. The chicken patties came to our store with the grill marks on them already...they were then further cooked on our GRILLS.

: Be asked if your meal was satisfactory,not have a crew member point to the corner where "We take our job at McDonalds seriously" forms.

If you are unsatisfied with your meal, tell us and we will replace it for you free of charge.

: Have a choice, or at least some veges, that are NOT a special. It seems that only last year McDonalds have discovered tomatoes don't grow in sauce bottles.

I don't quite understand what you you mean by that. We have had fresh tomatoes in our burgers for years. (McFeast, McOz)They are cut prior to them being put into your burger.
