The teacher was right. Even if all went great with the waiter, he'd tire of you speaking Spanish like Yoda.
That usually isn't an interest block. Usually most people are happy that you want to learn and are looking for corrections if they are needed. You being foreign gives you an automatic sense of being exotic. Play it up a bit and be all like "sorry, I'm still leaning the finer arts of your (wonderful/lovely) language", and you might get a little bit further than you think. Best wishes!
