May I take your order?
What are you going to order for your first/main course?
The chocolate cake looks too heavy. Could we have a light dessert?
I would like a second helping of this delicious dish.
I’m not hungry. We could grab a bite to eat and go to the swimming pool.
We’ll have a bottle of house wine, please.
We’ll have a bottle of red/white dry/sweet wine.
It’s good that we made a reservation earlier. The restaurant is fully booked.
