How to behave in a restaurant
It is important to behave nicely whenever you are out in public and dealing with people who are there to serve you. In a restaurant, you may want to try to behave even more pleasantly to those working for you as you will be spending more time with your waiter than you would with shop assistants or receptionists, and they can make your experience really pleasant if they like you and have enjoyed waiting on your table. This can help you in the future to have a really good experience every time you visit a certain restaurant as well.
- Make special requests before you arrive. If you have anyone in your dining party with allergies or special requirements then let the restaurant know when you reserve your table. This means that they can get any special ingredients in in advance, and won’t put them out on the night.
- Make eye contact. When you want the waiter’s attention, make eye contact and say excuse me, if they are close enough to hear, or mouth it if they are not. It is rude to wave a waiter over, click your fingers, or shout across the restaurant.
- Don’t make too much noise. Obviously the staff want you to enjoy your night with them, but the other diners also want to enjoy their own conversations and nights out. Keep the noise at your table to normal conversational level.
- Let your waiter know immediately if there is a problem. As soon as you realise there is something wrong with your food you should let your waiter know. This enables them to sort out the problem quickly and doesn’t interrupt when they are dealing with another table.
