去餐廳食飯唔喺次次都可以walk-in,遇到要電話book位嘅餐廳,你又識唔識點講呢?唔駛驚,對白早已預備好!想坐window side(窗口位)要點開口?點問餐廳有冇dress code?跟住以下對答攻略嚟講,就萬無一失喇!

即喺去片︰

當你打去餐廳後︰

Receptionist: Hello! This is AAA restaurant. What can I help you?
接線生︰你好!這是AAA餐廳,請問有甚麼事呢?

 

如果你book位食晚餐,可以答︰

You: I would like to reserve a table for two on Friday night.
你︰我想於星期五的晚餐時段訂一張兩人桌。

或者︰

You: I would like to make a reservation for two on Friday night.
你︰我想預約星期五兩位晚餐。

佢可能會再問︰

Receptionist: Okay. What time would you like to have dinner?
接線生︰好的,那麼你想甚麼時間用膳呢?

你可以回應︰

Yor: Half past seven, please.
你︰七點半。

 

萬一冇位,佢會講︰

Receptionist: Sorry, we are full booking at half past seven.
接線生︰不好意思,我們七點半已經滿了預約。

這時,你可以自己揀過個時間︰

A) You: What about 8 o’clock?
你︰那麼8點呢?

繼續A對話,如果有位佢就答︰
A) Receptionist: Yes, we have table available for that.
接線生︰好的,我們八點有位。

或者你想問會有甚麼時間揀︰

B) You: What time would be available for booking?
你︰有甚麼時間是可以預約?

繼續B對話,佢會回答︰

B) Receptionist: We have table available for both 6 o’clock and 8 o’clock.
接線生︰我們六點和八點有空桌。

你可以按佢提供嘅選擇去揀︰

B) You: Then 8 o’clock, please.
你︰那麼八點吧。

 

A和B對話最後都成功book位,但喺事情並冇咁簡單!因為你都要問問會唔會有dress code(穿著要求)或者你可以講下自己嘅Special request(特別要求)︰

You: Is there any dress code? / Does your restaurant have a dress code?
你︰這裡有沒有穿著要求?/ 餐廳有穿著要求嗎?

Receptionist: Yes, we require a formal dress code for both ladies and gentlemen.
接線生︰我們要求女士和男士也要穿著正裝。
Receptionist: No, both casual and formal are welcomed.
接線生︰沒有,不論休閒或正裝也沒有問題。

You: Could we have a table by the window, please?
你︰我可以要一張在窗旁的桌子嗎?
Receptionist: Sure.
接線生︰當然可以!

學識book位,重唔快啲去book間西餐廳,同家人朋友一齊撐檯腳!?
