Court Service Rules

Mise en place

Mise en place

  • Literally “putting in place”

  • Loosely “everything in place”

Mise en place1

Mise en place

  • Glassware is spotless and free of odor. Clean smears with steam.

  • Glassware is the correct size and shape for the wine it holds.

  • Wine lists are easy to access and read.

  • Cotton Serviettes are used since nylon repels water when handling chilled bottles.

  • The glass stemware is the only item to touch the tablecloth. Use and underliner for all other items placed on the table during beverage service.

  • All beverage service is performed on the right side of the guest.

Standard service

Standard Service

  • Remove glasses that are dirty.

  • Clear dirty ashtrays from table.

  • Serviette to be placed in the customer’s lap.

  • The order is taken from the host’s right.

  • The sommelier repeats the order to the host.

  • Proper stemware precedes the bottle to the table. Stemware placement goes from right to left with the water glass placement going either to the left or right of the stemware. The second glass from the right should be at 12 oclock above the knife. Placement of multiple stemware is a diagonal line, arc or diamond shaped pattern.

  • Hold the bottle in the right hand with the label visible to the gues when pouring.

  • Wipe the bottle lip with the bottle serviette after each pour.

  • Pour the host less than one ounce, and after approval, serve the wine moving clockwise around the table, women first, men second and the host last. If there is a guest of honor, pour that person first, then the usual precession. If there is a party of eight or more, the pouring is done to all guests in a clockwise fashion.
