Often the Restaurant Manager will also organise table reservations. 

A Restaurant Managers should have a good knowledge of all dishes and wines, and must be able to divest this knowledge to those working with them. They will also be tasked with ordering all supplies for the front of house, from wines and spirits to napkins and straws.

They should be able to anticipate where problems might arise before they do, and will also be expected to deal with any customer complaints.

They will be able to recognise regular patrons to the restaurant and anticipate their likes/dislikes, and will have a heightened sense of diplomacy, discretion, and patience.
