    Norma Ruiz of San Leandro, Calif., was celebrating her 28th birthday in the train's lounge car with 10 friends in April, when a fellow passenger aggressively approached the party and said they were "annoying" other guests.

    The group moved to the dining car, and even though they kept their voices low, a staff member threatened to boot them off the train.

    Ruiz complained about the incident on Yelp, posting a two-star review with a lengthy account on April 20.

    "I felt so ridiculed when the manager approached me about keeping our noise down when in fact our noise level was no longer an issue," Ruiz wrote.

    After this experience I sincerely have no desire to come back."

    "I really advise you if you will be celebrating a special occasion with a group larger than 4 PLEASE really consider taking your business elsewhere because you will not be welcomed."

    Ruiz's friends were Latino UC-Berkeley graduates and she told Slate that she's now realizing race played a role in how staff treated her group.

    "I think it was just that person complaining and then the manager seeing that we were Latino, basically decided to discriminate [against] us because we were Latinos and [a big] group," she shared with Slate. "Now that I hear about this event with a group of African American ladies being kicked out of the train, I'm seeing a pattern. I'm realizing that how I was treated was not normal."

    This news comes after the mostly black members of a book group were left humiliated when they received a similar noise complaint on Saturday. But while Ruiz and her friends were allowed to remain on the train, the black women were asked to leave the train.

    The Napa Valley Wine Train offered the women in the book club a refund and issued an apology on Tuesday saying staff was "100% wrong in its handling of the issue."

    The Wine Train responded to Ruiz's complaint on Yelp, apologizing and thanking her for the feedback. Slate reached out to the company for further comment and staff doesn't recall the incident.

    I've been on that train. it's small and close quarters. It's common sense to just keep your voices at a minimum.
