Professional Dining Room Management 2e

The service supervisor&#146;s job is a key one in the restaurant business because a large part of the guest&#146;s dining experience and satisfaction is derived from the interpersonal contact between guest and staff. If this contact is not satisfactory, all the care and investment in decor, food selection, and preparation are for naught. The service supervisor must see to it that courteous and efficient service is provided at all times. Professional Dining Room Management, Second Edition, discusses the management side of running a restaurant.
