When you resign from a waiter job, it is important to resign gracefully and professionally. Give sufficient notice to your restaurant owner or boss by writing a formal resignation letter, and be ready to move on before submission of your letter.

A waiter resignation letter must be brief, focused, and clear. There is no requirement to mention your cause of leaving. Just provide information on at what date you are going to leave.

Mention that you enjoyed your employment and say thanks to employer for career development opportunities they provided you.

Mr. Justin Clarke
Manager Human Resources
33 Fox Lane
New York, NY 98989


Dear Mr. Clarke:

Please consider this letter as formal notification of my intent to resign as a Waiter from Foodies, effective from October 30, 2017. Working at Foodies was a wonderful experience – I could not have asked for an environment more conducive to learning or a better group of colleagues.

I put many hours of thoughtful consideration before I decided to leave. There were many angles that made me feel that my decision to leave may not be apt; I have learnt all that I know about the hospitality and restaurant businesses at Foodies. But after much deliberation, I realized that I need to move on due to a domestic problem.

I am sad to leave Foodies, a place that taught me so much and developed me professionally. I am truly appreciative of this opportunity and wish your restaurant’s success in the future.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to assist in hiring and training my replacement.
