Silverware Etiquette

Are you sending the wrong signals to your server?

When you dine out this winter, don’t send out mixed messages to the staff of the restaurant by misplacing the silverware on your plate. You may not even be aware, but your silverware might be sending incorrect messages to your server!

Did you know that how you place silverware on your plate can let your server know a lot of things about your dining experience, including being finished, ready for the second course, even whether or not the food was tasty?

Our Restaurant and Lodging Management students want to remind you of some basic utensil placement language and etiquette that will tell your server everything they need to know, without ever saying a word.
