The Most Important Question to Ask When Delivering Food to the Table
"Can I get you anything else before you get started?"
If you say this and they want something you can get it for them right away. If you do not ask this question you will see hands going up in the air, maybe a whistle, people tugging on your shirt etc..etc..
When you do the table check later they should be alright. If they wanted something their meal is already getting cold and you have not delivered on their request for tabasco yet.
No matter how busy you are take the time to ask the question and do not just drop the food and run away. This way you can get what they need right away and move on to your next table.
