The waiter who received a $4000 tip from Johnny Depp has told about his night with the superstar!

Mohammed A . Sekhani  -- a veteran waiter at Chicago's legendary steakhouse Gibsons -- told “Johnny and his party arrived just after 11.30pm at the restaurant and requested a private room.   He had visited our restaurant several times before while he was filming Public Enemies and he promised me that he would return after the premiere."

Sekhani says Depp and his party ordered appetizers like shrimp cocktails while they prepared his favorite dish Clams Casino – which is clams baked with garlic, pepper and cheese.

Said Sekhani : “He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr Mann and Miss Cotillard.  I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite.   He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet – when I wait for him he doesn’t like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding. "

It's not the first time Sekhani has waited on Depp.  “Because he had visited us before he calls me ‘Mo’ and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated.  He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very ‘humble guy’ and a really cool dude.   Obviously, I was delighted with his tip but he has always been very generous every time that he has visited us here at Gibsons.

When the party left around 2.30am he smiled and told me that he would return – they were a great group of people.”
