Waitress Reference Letter Example

To whom it may concern:

I strongly recommend Mr. Sara Chris for employment as a part of your waiting team. She has shown to be an outstanding worker here at Sheng Feng’s Restaurant and we were regretful to hear that her career growth is taking her out of the region.

Sara was a marvelous addition to our waitresses team from her first day and during the three years at Sheng Feng Restaurant she has worked dedicatedly and distinguished herself as a fast learner, capable worker and in general a brilliant young woman. Always on time, he often volunteered to cover the shifts of his colleagues when there was requirement.

She is very skilled in:
• Setting table plates, serviettes and condiments previous to the start of meals;
• Arranging seats the guests when they get there, take their orders, and dish up food and beverages;
• Clearing used crockery and put back table settings as soon as guests leave;
• Serving individual portions or dishes and replenish drinks when requested

Sara has an amusing, good tempered courage and keeps peaceful in hectic situations. On one particularly eventful night, during which two other waiters called in ill, I retain information she serving a dozen tables at once, keeping every patron happy.

I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
