Maître d’/Host

The maître d’ is often the person who seats you. He or she may also be the general manager or the owner, especially in a smaller establishment. The maître d’ is in charge of all floor service, including staffing, coordinating reservations with seating, timing the flow of patrons with the pace of the kitchen staff, and handling special requests—such as presenting an engagement ring or a birthday surprise.
