How many in your party?
Has anyone spoken to you yet? Have you spoken to anyone yet? Does the hostess know you're here? Someone will be right with you. Someone should be right with you. No one will ever be with you. Sorry you've been kept waiting. Sorry you had to wait. I hope you haven't been waiting long. I was seating another party. I don't work here.
How many? Is this everybody? Is this the whole party? Three? Four? We ask that everyone in the party be here before we seat you. Are you together? Is she with you? Are you with them? Are you alone?
Do you have reservations? Did you make a reservation? Just give me a minute to clean off that table. The folks at table three should be leaving in a few minutes. They just paid their check at that table. They're settling their check now. They should be leaving soon. They're almost done. We just need to clean off their table. They're not leaving. Inside or out?
We're still working out some kinks. You can wait at the bar. Would you mind not blocking the doorway? We're serving from the light fare menu. Did you have a preference as to inside or out? We're looking at a 45-minute wait. You're looking at a half-hour wait. We have a very small kitchen. The kitchen is backed up. Our chef just quit.
How about that solar flare?
We'll buzz you. It shouldn't be too long. I have your name. I still have your name. You're next. You're next after them. Who did you speak with? No one by that name works here. It shouldn't be long. Thanks for bearing with us.
OK. Okay. Thanks for waiting. All right. Dorsey Party. Large Party. Nitkin Party. Vozzella Party. Gorelick Party.
We're not really open yet.
