Holding a party at a local restaurant can be a tedious task. Especially if the staff are not very cooperative. There are also some rules and regulations that you should know about beforehand, in order to make sure you have an overall happy and fun experience.
If you’re planning to have a huge crowd and a cake or something of that sort, make sure you book ahead. You will be surprised to find out how many restaurants will be already booked on that date. So save up your date early on. Some restaurants even have early bird offers for those who book well in advance with a reservation payment. Booking ahead is sure to save you unnecessary troubles you may otherwise have to face.
Give clear instructions
The most vital thing is to give out clear instructions to the workers at the restaurant. They may have rules and regulations too when it comes to hosting a party in their premises, so make sure to give out clear instructions to the relevant parties concerned. Some of the best Italian restaurant in Singapore don’t allow for cakes to be bought from outside. The cake has to be bought through the restaurant only. And if you are having a huge crowd for the party it might be mandatory that everyone buys something or you purchase something for everyone since the seats have been booked and their prospective businesses lost. Some people host birthday parties in the restaurants without buying anything additional other than the cake. And most of the crowd leaves just after the cake without purchasing anything which is very unfair to the restaurant. So make sure to get everything sorted out beforehand with the workers before hosting the party.
When the party is going on
If you are having the party at a family restaurant then make sure you or friends don’t disturb the other diners. Since most of them too, would have come out to have a happy and fun time with their families and friends. Shouting and screaming should be avoided at all costs. Even booing should be avoided. Be considerate of the other diners. You can laugh and have fun, there is no harm. But just see to it that you don’t make a nuisance of yourself!
Appreciate and be nice
Be appreciative of the staff and their hard work in helping to make your party a success. Try to be positive at all times. Most often than not, the waiters try to make the party special. However, there are instances when newbie waiters or waitress make mistakes that can be irritating in our sight. Especially on the day we are hosting a party. So try to be patient and nice to all those who are serving you. Yes, you are paying them money, but be very considerate of their feelings they will serve you and your friends happily and ensure you have a great time! And don’t forget to tip well!
