Asking for a table – Notice here, we use THERE ARE, not we are.
Ordering from the waiter – When ordering, we use the verb HAVE and the Future Simple. As well, we have the definite article THE to show specificity.
i.e. I’ll have the fish.
When asking friends – Please note that with friends we use Present Continuous, NOT will.
i.e. A: What are you having? B: I’m having the fish.
During the meal
Asking for something – Use PASS or HAND, not give.
End of the meal
The Bill – We never use “I invite you.” It makes us think you are inviting us to an event like a wedding, rather than offering to pay.
- Meat temperatures: Rare, Medium rare, Medium, Medium well, Well done
- If you want to pay for the bill, you can say “I’ve got this” or “It’s on me:”
In the comments below, post an example conversation you could have in a restaurant.
A: I’m starving! What are you having?
B: The fish looks good. I think I’ll have the fish.
