• A guest in a hurry must be given a speedy service. • A few friendly words may help a lonely guest enjoy his meal better. • Some guest cannot understand the menu so the waiter should explain to them and possible show how it is being prepared. • If it is evident that the guest is budgeting, he will request for the waiter’s suggestions on what to order that will enable them to enjoy a fine meal at a modest cost. • If the guest is dieting, the waiter should be able to suggest some dishes because guest’s welcome suggestions on food do not have many calories.
In Tagaytay Country Café, they don’t have any permanent table setting but due to different types of cuisine, they manage to set up in what type of food they serve.
Plates and Bowls • Dinner plates should be placed approximately 2 inches from the table's edge, centered on the placemat or squarely in front of each chair. • • • Soup bowls are placed on top of the dinner plate. Salad plates are placed to the left of and just above the forks. The bread plate should be placed to the right and slightly above the salad plate. • When serving multiple courses, many hosts will opt to serve them in courses and place only one or the other dish at the original table setting. For example, if soup will be served first, the soup bowl will be placed on top of the dinner plate and the salad dish will be brought out after the soup bowl and spoon has been cleared.
Silverware • Silverware should be placed on the table in the order it will be used; silverware that will be used first should be found on the farthest left and right sides of the plate. • Forks are placed to the left of the dinner plate; knives and spoons go to the right. • Knives should be placed with their cutting-edge toward the dinner plate, except the butter knife which should be laid flat on a bread plate.
Utensils should be about 1/2-inch away from the plate or each other, and they should also be lined up evenly from their bottoms.
Avoid placing more silverware than the meal calls for. Dessert silverware can be originally placed at the table setting if you wish. The dessert fork or spoon should be centered above and parallel to the dinner plate.
If you will be serving dishes that require specialty silverware, be sure to arrange the silverware on either side of the plate according to the order in which they will be eaten.
Cups and Glasses • Water glasses should be placed above the dinner knife, with other drinking glasses arranged neatly nearby the water glass. Often drinking glasses are arranged in a triangular formation. • Coffee cups and saucers may be placed on the table to the right of the knife and spoon.

Establishment The weakness of Tagaytay Country Hotel is the unfinished work in the establishment like unfinished paint jobs and construction that is not been repaired for days or so, that makes it an eye sore and unpleasing to the guest.
Employee Due to lack of qualified personnel or less trained staff the hotel work gets over delayed and customers receive unsatisfactory service, which create a bad impression about the hotel in the guests’ mind. And once the guest leaves the hotel after unsatisfactory service, the guest doesn’t come back.
Management The managements need more power to implement a task that needs to be done over his/her employees. The management had established a very close relationship that caused over familiarity between employer and employees.
Practicumer As a practicumer we were equipped and prepared for this training program, but the management depended and required too much services beyond the required job description more so assigned us to areas like a dicer in a supermarket.
