It may be a ridiculous subject to discuss, but since the pandemic hit us, many people left the restaurant industry, and new people started working in restaurants.
We all witnessed that restaurants were hiring last summer in desperately. Most restaurants lower their experience expectations for hiring people to join their restaurant teams.
I have experience as a customer and as a server, and that server didn’t course it up dishes. Nobody wants to have their apps and main dishes on at the same time at their table. As a server, this is our job to course it up for them and help their dinner experience be enjoyable and smooth.
These subjects matter for bistro and fine-dining-style restaurants. Once in a while, I come up with tables that they wanted to be sure I won’t bring all dishes at the same time.
Also, some people may share a bunch of dishes like tapas style. I don’t recommend you order more than two-three dishes to the table same time. It makes them feel like rushing dinner.
Every table has a different pace! Some customers prefer to eat their meal and keep their experience short. On the other hand, some customers meet their friends and take their time while enjoying their meal.
As a server, we should be able to read their customer needs and make our service exclusive. I believe this kind of attitude helps you get better tips.
Would you prefer to course it up orders for your tables? Please, share your experience and opinion with comments! We will grow by sharing our experiences!
I actually prefer my appetizers & drinks first & usually that's how my meal is served but I've been to restaurants where I've been asked my preference which is cool too.
If I'm waiting for others to join us it's nice to have appetizers early on. There have been times when even with a reservation the wait time is longer than expected & I'm starving by the time we're seated so yeah, bring on those nummys!
I've had many different experiences with this. I'd prefer at least 15 minutes in between, but some places rush you alot faster & you end up eating too fast...lol But I like having a nice lonnnnng dinner, but I'm sure certain places have time limits & it can be annoying for patrons to stay too long, takes away money from the servers.
Luckily the servers are very good and I try to be a courteous customer. Any problems that might arise are minor and laughed off. No special order as I go for the main course while its still hot.Ford
I like a nice leisurely dinner like our beloved Space Needle used to allow. I never had a dinner there that took less than two hours. I hope & pray that the restaurant and the observation tower reopen soon. I miss them.
I usually get my own entree...so apps and then main course please :)
lol, My experience these days is that the server typically forgets to bring certain parts of the order.
If it just me I go for the main course.
I am interested in this task.
