Here are some basic Dining Etiquette rules that I think we all forget from time to time, but they are definitely worth a quick reminder……a quickie, if you will.
*Honor restaurant reservations or cancel them on time.
*Order when ready; forget the old rule that women order first.
*Don’t talk, text, tweet, e-mail or surf the web at the table.
*Do NOT eat until everyone in your party has been served.
*Chew with your mouth closed…..(I know, I know: but you’d be surprised)
*Salt and pepper travel together…..so if someone asks for you to “please pass the salt”, you pass salt AND pepper.
*Don’t overstay your restaurant welcome. If you are done, please do NOT stay for an extra 30 minutes. There are people waiting for that table. Remember: you wouldn’t be happy if you showed up for your 8:30pm reservation and had to wait because the first guests were Mucho Blah Blah.
I hope you enjoy these helpful hints.
Thanks for reading.
