WELCOME TO THE TACO-TAINMENT DISTRICT!

Host (aka, the welcome wagon)

Often the first point of contact for guests, the host maintains an important role in establishing guests’ needs and expectations and then conveying that information to their server. The host is also responsible for:

  • Setting up guests’ reservations
  • Organizing seating charts
  • Accommodating guests as they wait to be seated
  • Seating guests as tables become available
  • Making sure that servers are aware of guests’ allergies or food restrictions
  • Letting servers know if their guests are celebrating a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary

Qualifications
Since they are the first point of contact for guests, a host should be high energy, have great people and communication skills, be organized, and have an attention for detail.

Servers (aka, the ones who take care of guests)

Arguably the most visible staff members in a restaurant, servers are responsible for ensuring the satisfaction of all guests. Many restaurants assign each server a station to help things run smoothly, and their tasks include:

  • Taking guests’ food and drink orders
  • Ensuring that water glasses are always filled
  • Providing guests with insights on the menu or daily specials
  • Setting up the dining room prior to service
  • Acting as the liaison between the guests and the kitchen
  • Processing bills after the meal has concluded
  • Having Fun

Bartender (aka, the drink maker)

Bartenders are primarily responsible for the upkeep of their space behind the bar and are expected to have knowledge of wines, spirits, and certainly any drink specials that the restaurant offers. A bartender’s tasks include:

  • Set up the bar at the beginning of their shift
  • Serve drinks to guests seated at the bar
  • Make drinks for servers to bring to tables
  • Ensure that the bar is clean and tidy throughout
  • Shut down the bar at the end of the night

Qualifications
Bartenders should have a high level of knowledge in beer, wine, and cocktails, whether it comes from work experience or a bartending training program. Additionally, they need to have the same customer-facing skills that servers have, especially if food is served at the bar. A bartender should always be hyper-aware of their guests and their intoxication levels, and have the communication and problem-solving skills necessary to keep guests safe.
