McNally didn't mince any words and called Corden a "tiny cretin of a man" and gave two examples of the host's unacceptable attitude towards the servers
Back in June, he complained about finding hair on his food and told the manager to comp his drinks or else he will write a nasty review on Yelp

In October, his most recent visit to the restaurant, he was also nasty towards their server
Corden and his wife were there for brunch and she ordered an egg yolk omelette with salad. He called the server and asked to return the food because there was a bit of egg white mixed with the yolk.
They remade the omelette but instead of a salad, they mistakenly served it with fries. Corden then started yelling at the server and remarked that he should go to the kitchen to make the omelette himself.
The manager stepped in to rescue the server and gave Corden & his wife complimentary champagne. He was calmer after that but only to the manager, he continued to be rude to the server.
Customers of Balthazar gushed about the excellent staff and service that is a guarantee at the restaurant
James Corden was annihilated by Instagram users commenting on McNelly's post

The peace did not last long after McNally read about Corden's version of the incident in a New York Time's interview
In another attempt to get on McNally's good side, Corden apologized during his late-night show which the restauranteur graciously accepted
The ban was reinstated after McNally saw Corden's other interview where he denied yelling during the whole ordeal. McNally said he has given up on Corden.
Before fully closing the chapter on that, the Balthazar owner posted this sign that was seen during the NYC marathon
This is not the first instance where James Corden was publicly called out for his behavior. They hosted a legendary Ask Me Anything on Reddit and it was a wreck everyone delighted to see!
This was the top comment and it looks like Mr. Corden doesn't do well in crowded restaurants.
Redditors really went in and gave zero care if his feelings were getting hurt
James Corden's only claim to fame is Carpool Karaoke but that's only because of the singers he drives around LA
90% of this comment was phrased as a compliment and I'd like to believe he read it
He is one of the first celebrities that gets named whenever that question is asked
There have been rumors long before the Balthazar incident of James Corden being an actual terrible person. The series of Instagram posts of Keith McNally is the closest, most concrete proof we have so far that Corden is a rude, boozy panda — no offense to pandas.
