Leaving a waiting job is not easy especially if you think about the fact that you will have to start again somewhere else. However, it must be done professionally and you need to ensure that your new beginning is easy and the transition from one job to another is smooth. The first thing that you need to do after leaving your job is to ask for a recommendation letter.

Following is a Sample of Reference Letter for Waiter, Hostess or Waitress. Feel free to modify this sample as per your requirements.

To Whom It May Concern

I strongly recommend Sara Chris for employment as a part of your waitressing team. She has proved herself to be a dedicated waitress at Sheng Feng’s Restaurant.

Sara was a great addition to our restaurant team. During her 3 years at Sheng Feng Restaurant, she worked dedicatedly and distinguished herself as a fast learner, capable worker and a brilliant young woman. Always arrived on time, she often volunteered to cover the shifts of her colleagues when required.

Particularly, she distinguished herself in the following areas:

• Setting up table plates, napkins and condiments
• Accompanying guests to their seats, taking orders, and serving food and beverages
• Clearing tables and refresh settings as guests leave
• Making bills and collecting cash

Sara is good tempered, courageous individual who always keep herself calm in hectic situations. On one particularly busy night, during which two other waiters were absent, she served a dozen tables alone, keeping every patron happy.

Again, I strongly recommend Sara for a waitress position. May you have any questions and concerns about her, please call me at (000) 098-7654. I wish her best of luck in her future endeavors.
