Hi there! I am Tim, from Wall Street English.
Today we’re going to look at some simple questions and sentences we often use when we are in a restaurant.
At the reception we can say:
Hi, good evening. We have a reservation under Tim, please.
This tells people the name that was used when making the reservation.
We can also clarify the number of people by saying:
It’s for a table for 4 people.
When ordering we can ask to see if the main course comes with a certain side dish:
Is this served with a salad or fries on the side?
We can order by saying:
We’d like to order the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, the Classic Burger and 2 soups of the day.
We can end our order by saying:
That’s everything for now. Thanks.
If there is a mistake with your order we can say:
Excuse me, but we didn’t order that.
If the orders are taking too long we can say:
Excuse me, we’ve been waiting for a long time. Could you help us check our order?
When we would like to pay we can say:
Could we have the bill, please?
If you would like to check if the restaurant accepts credit cards you can say:
Do you take credit cards?
To recap our phrases today:
1. We have a reservation under (name of the person).
2. It’s a table for (the number of people)
3. Is this served with (the name of the side dish)?
4. we’d like to order…(the name of the dish)
5. That’s everything for now.
6. We didn’t order that.
7. We’ve been waiting for a long time.
8. Could we have the bill, please?
9. Do you take credit cards?
I hope you found this useful, and of course, have a great day.
