0:13 Hello there, viewer! Great to see you again.
0:16 Fine dining is a very pleasant experience:
0:20 we go to an awesome restaurant, order our favorite dishes and savor the taste in great ambience.
0:26 This lesson will show you how to place your order and speak to the staff in a fine dining restaurant.
0:33 Listen to them all, and check out the vocabulary section towards the end.
0:38 It’s a good idea to practice the lines by pausing the lesson and repeating the dialog anywhere you want to!
0:44 Let’s get started now!!
0:53 Hi, my name is Joy and I will be your waitress.
0:55 Can I get you started with anything?
0:58 I would like to order something from your wine list.
1:01 Here it is. You can select from this menu.
1:03 Okay, I’d like to order a bottle of red wine. I’ll have the 2005 Napa Valley Merlot.
1:10 Good choice. I’ll be right back with your wine.
1:13 Thank you.
1:20 Hi. Are you ready to order?
1:23 Not really. I’m pretty confused. Can you suggest something good?
1:28 Of course. Our specials are the New York steak and crispy roasted lamb.
1:33 Yes, I’d like the New York steak, well done. And my side orders will be a baked potato and a salad.
1:41 All right. Will that be all for you?
1:43 Yes, thank you.
1:45 Okay. Your order will be ready soon.
1:53 How was your dinner?
1:55 It was great, thanks.
1:56 Would you like something for dessert?
1:58 Yes, please.. I’ll have a slice of cheesecake.
2:01 Okay. Would you like some coffee or anything else with that?
2:05 No, that’s all, thank you.
2:14 How was your meal Ma’am?
2:15 It was great!
2:17 Can I get you anything else?
2:19 Just our check, please?
2:21 Sure, I’ll be right back …
2:23 Here you go.
2:25 Here is my credit card.
2:27 I can take that for you.
2:29 Thank you.
2:40 The waitress is a woman who takes your order and serves you at a restaurant.
2:44 A waiter is a man with the same job.
2:50 The menu is the list of dishes available at that restaurant, and the prices, so that you can make your choice.
2:57 You’ll be given a menu shortly after you’re seated and you can take some time to look at the choices.
3:06 Crispy is when food, or the outside of the food, is brittle and may crumble easily.
3:11 You may like crispy fried chicken, but you probably don’t want crispy mashed potatoes!
3:20 When you use well done to refer to a steak, it means fully cooked, with no pink in the center.
3:26 Most people don’t like well done steak because it’s harder to chew and it’s not as tender as steak that's less well done.
3:37 That sweet little something that you like to have at the end of a meal is called dessert.
3:42 If you’re given a mint or small chocolate with your check, that’s not called dessert, even though it’s something sweet.
3:52 The check shows how much you owe for your meal. You may have to ask for the check or it may be brought to you without your asking.
4:01 Thank you for watching this lesson. We’ll be back with a new one tomorrow.
4:05 Do come back and check it out.
