Default What Does a Banquet Server Do?


A banquet server is responsible for preparing the tables and banquet area before guests arrive, effectively serving a number of different dishes and courses to guests during a meal, and clearing the tables and banquet area after the guests depart. Banquets are most often held at hotels, resorts, or private clubs for large events and parties. This means that there may be 100 or more guests to be efficiently and pleasantly served during the course of an event. A server effectively tends to those needs, with duties similar to a restaurant waiter but working in a more team-focused way.

The responsibilities of a banquet server begin before the guests arrive. Prior to the event beginning, servers will prepare the banquet area for the event, which typically involves setting out linens on tables, setting silverware and napkins on the tables, and preparing anything else that may eventually be set at the tables, such as salt, pepper, or bread and rolls. While this individual will not necessarily cook or prepare any of the food, he or she should become familiar with the menu and the dishes being served to better assist guests with questions about the meal.

Can anyone suggest me a location where I can celebrate my wedding renewal? I am very excited for the day. I have called up my all guests already and venue is yet to be decided.

When you book a venue space NYC you should not only look at the place but at the competency level of the staff. They should be efficient and friendly. It will make a big difference to the party.
