In the modern world, there hardly is a person who does not like going to cafes or restaurants, because not a single trip abroad or a weekend with friends is complete without conversations over a cup of aromatic coffee or a delicious dessert. In addition, going to a restaurant is a great opportunity to socialize, and visiting a restaurant in English is an interesting challenge! After all, in order not to get into a mess when ordering dishes, you will need to start a dialogue with the waiter in the restaurant in English. Before going to an English restaurant, it's best to prepare well. Remembering our last trip to a UK restaurant, here's a look at helpful restaurant phrases in English.
Before going to the restaurant in the evening, my friend Kathrine made a reservation:
- I would like to make a reservation.
- For what time would you like a table?
- I’d like a table for 7 p.m. please.
Having dressed up we went to the restaurant. There Kathrine asked a waiter:
Could I have the menu, please?
I opened the menu and started to read different menu sections:
The waiter came back to our table and asked:
Are you ready to order?
Not yet. Give us a second, please.
*in 5 minutes*
Yes, please. We’ll have a seafood soup and pasta.
Would you like anything else?
Nothing else, thank you.
My friend needed some help in making the order:
What are your specialties?
Our specialties are beef steak.
Thank you! I’ll have one.
Getting started, I was having troubles with my order. Therefore, I had to continue the dialogue with the waiter in English:
Excuse me! This isn’t what I ordered.
Speaking about past trips to the restaurant, I remembered many problems that I faced. Consider what phrases in a restaurant in English can help you complain:
This food is too cold/hot/salty/spicy.
We’ve been waiting for a long time!
Fortunately, this time, after the comment, we were immediately serviced well, and after a delicious dinner it was time to ask for the bill:
Could we have a bill, please!
Don’t forget to leave some tips for a good service!
Knowing all these phrases, you will probably be able to start a conversation in a restaurant in English.
Have a great meal!
