Great Waiter Tips

  1. You only get one chance to make a first impression.
  2. Wear comfortable shoes. Waiters need to keep their feet happy.
  3. Practice makes perfect.
  4. Tables should always be level and not wobbly; fix them before you seat customers!
  5. Be consistent! Be as attentive at the beginning of the meal as at the end.
  6. Know the menu. Then you can talk about the dishes in a professional manner.
  7. Take your time when saying specials. Make them sound interesting. Don’t recite them as though they’re a list.
  8. Smile! Because a smile goes a mile!
  9. It’s as important to greet customers on the way out as it is on the way in.
  10. Don’t call your customers “guys” or “dudes”. Sir, Madam, Mr or Mrs will be fine.
