    Server Requests

    Request 1: You need not demonstrate your wine expertise. Whatever you order, you will probably like. Keep it simple: order within your price range and enjoy.

    Request 2: Keep your cell phone off the table. I will try my best not to pour water on your new iPhone—but why take the risk?

    Request 3: Your host is not your server. Don’t order from your host.

    Request 4: A starter salad is a starter salad, and is smaller than an entrée salad.

    Request 5: When paying with cash, clarify “I would like some change” or “It’s all yours.”

    Request 6: Listen to your server. If your server says, “I’ll be right back with some bread and water,” do not respond, “Would you bring us some water? Maybe some bread, too?”

    What You Deserve In Return

    A water glass never less than half full.

    Clean cutlery and table upon seating.

    Your order completed correctly in an appropriate amount of time depending upon busyness of restaurant. Feel free to observe.

    Honest answers and opinions.

    A smile.
