Refilling a water glass? Do it on the right of the guest.
Dropping a drink at a table? Do it on the right of the guest.

Server etiquette. Not many restaurants train you on how to correctly serve drinks, which is why when restaurants hire servers they prefer you have server experience. But sometimes you don’t want to start as a host or back waiter to gain experience. How can you move past those entry level restaurant positions?
Pay attention when you are dining out, especially at fine dining restaurants. The more polished your server skills, the more restaurant options you have to choose where to work.
Food made with love
Followed by an ice cold sorrel with cranberry juice aka the Hari @sugarcanerestaurant
Question? Does anyone else drink sorrel with cranberry juice?
Want to make more money?
Yes, we all want to. Do you want to know how to make more money as a server? I use to think if I leave this restaurant, to work at ‘this’ restaurant then I’ll make more money. Sometimes changing locations is the case to making more money, and other times it’s you. What do you know?
What you know has a lot to do with your selling skills? As a server you cannot sell an item on the menu if you don’t know exactly what’s on the menu. Be knowledgeable.
Know your menu.
Is an item 86’d?
What are the specials?
Know what the food and drinks look like!
Have you ever had a guest show you a picture and tell you this is what they want to order?
