  24. Types of Food Service • Buffet (Ideas?) • Bowls and platters of food are arranged on serving table. Dinner plates at one end, people serve themselves as they walk along the serving line. • English style • all courses are served at the table by the host or hostess. The service may be done with or without a maid. • Family Style • Food brought to the table in serving dishes. People serve themselves • Plate • Food placed on each plate in the kitchen and the plates are brought to the table No serving dishes are used and portion size can be controlled.

  25. Restaurant Etiquette To get your server’s attention, raise your hand. No need to shout, whistle, or frantically wave your arms around If something is not correct, give server a chance to correct it (not cooked properly, special attention not taken) What makes bad service? If it’s bad, ask to speak with a manager
