As competition for customers is constantly increasing, contemporary restaurants must distinguish themselves by offering consistent, high-quality service.

Chapters cover everything from training and hiring staff, preparation for service, front-door hospitality to money handling, styles of modern table service, front-of-the-house safety and sanitation, serving diners with special needs, and service challenges—what to do when things go wrong.
