I present menus, create personal dining experience, answer questions, and offer information on menu items, beverages, and specials. I accept and organize reservations, and prioritize reservations to accommodate customers and prepare seating assignments prior to service and present plan to restaurant during pre-shift meeting. I walk through dining room during service to ensure guest satisfaction and advise servers and bussing staff of specific service needs.
