Hostess/Server

Mar 2010 - Jun 2012
The Blue Fish and Oyster Bar
The responsibilities I had as a hostess included: monitoring the open dining sections of the restaurant, dividing tables equally among servers, estimating wait times, and taking reservations. I would also help to clear tables when we were busy, so the servers wouldn't get behind.
As a server, my main focus was to provide quality customer service. I was responsible for answering any and all questions about the menus, take orders, and have an extensive knowledge of wine in order to make proper recommendations. I worked closely with other wait staff and the kitchen to ensure that the restaurant operated efficiently.
