Final Billing and Fond Farewells in Restaurants

During the Breakfast meal, the server should place an accurate breakfast bill/ check on the guest’s table after the main course / entrée, or after the guest places an order for the buffet and when they return from the buffet counter. 

Servers should also check the Billing instructions, meal plan, and inclusions of the guest from the report provided by the Front Office or servers can also do a Room Inquiry on the Point of sale (POS) terminal to find out such details.

During other meal periods like lunch and dinner, the server gives the accurate check within 3 minutes after the guest requests the bill/check. All Bills/checks should be clean, accurate, and free of spills or stains, and should be presented in a folder along with a hotel or restaurant logo pen.
