Job Details

Chef Thomas Keller's team is seeking enthusiastic and capable individuals passionate about food, beverage, and hospitality to join us as a Host. As the first point of contact for our guests, you will set the tone for their dining experience, providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Located within the Four Seasons Hotel at the iconic Surf Club, Chef Keller’s restaurant honors the location’s history of good times and grand parties with classic Continental cuisine for a modern audience. Like the swinging patrons of the '50s and '60s hotspots this restaurant celebrates, The Surf Club Restaurant knows how to have fun.

As a Host, you will warmly greet guests as they arrive, manage reservations, and efficiently seat guests in the dining area. Providing exceptional service, you will address guest inquiries and concerns promptly and professionally. Working alongside the Maitre D, you will ensure smooth operations and seamless guest experiences.

Responsibilities:

  • Greet and Seat Guests: Warmly greet guests as they arrive, manage reservations, and efficiently seat guests in the dining area, ensuring an even distribution of service.
  • Manage Reservations: Utilize reservation systems to manage bookings, coordinate seating arrangements, and accommodate special requests.
  • Customer Service: Provide exceptional service, addressing guest inquiries and concerns promptly and professionally.
  • Coordinate with Team: Work closely with the front-of-house team to ensure smooth operations and seamless guest experiences.
  • Maintain Cleanliness: Ensure the host area and entrance are always clean and presentable.
  • Promote a Positive Atmosphere: Foster a welcoming and enjoyable environment for both, guests and staff.
Qualifications:
  • Experience: Minimum of 1-2 years of experience in a similar role within a fine restaurant, preferably within a Michelin-starred restaurant.
  • Skills: Strong communication and interpersonal skills, excellent organizational abilities, and a hospitality-forward mindset.
  • Attitude: A passion for food, beverage, and hospitality with a desire to create memorable experiences for guests.
  • Flexibility: Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and adapt to the dynamic nature of a fine restaurant.

Chef Keller’s collection of restaurants is founded on a culture of mentorship and provides a solid foundation of skills to support our profession. We are proud to offer:

  • 401K with no waiting periods and the opportunity to receive up to 4.0% of your salary as matching contributions
  • Company-sponsored medical and dental plans with a contribution of 55%-85% of your premium*
  • Voluntary plans such as vision, life and AD&D insurance, accident, hospitalization, critical illness plans, pet insurance, and short- and long-term disability insurance.
  • Opportunities for growth and advancement
  • Family meal
  • Complimentary parking
  • Florida Paid Time Off
  • Scholarship programs
  • Peer mentorship program
  • Employee discounts at Chef Thomas Keller’s casual properties

Who we are:

With more than 10 properties and 800 employees, the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group (TKRG) has grown from one restaurant to a large family of businesses.

TKRG proudly represents The French Laundry, Per Se, The Surf Club Restaurant, Bouchon Bistro, Bouchon Bakery, Ad Hoc, La Calenda, and Regiis Ova Caviar & Champagne Lounge. The properties and people Chef Keller inspires are known for setting new standards in cuisine, service, and employment experiences. Our goal is to collaborate with talented restaurant professionals and offer opportunities to learn and grow within the hospitality profession. As we have expanded over time, the expectations that set apart our restaurants have not changed: ensuring that every guest feels special, and every guest experience is exceptional. A guest can walk into The French Laundry or one of the Bouchon Bakeries and have the most enjoyable, unique, and memorable experience. A chef will find the same blue aprons and green tape in each of our kitchens—symbols of a common striving for excellence. Outside the kitchens, every action we take must reflect the generosity, nurturing, and finesse within. As members of the TKRG family, we have the responsibility to ensure this consistency. Beyond it, all is a mission, perhaps summed up best by Chef Keller himself. “To make people happy, one guest at a time,” he says. “That is what cooking is all about.”
