Essential duties include, but are not limited to:


  • As a runner, in our fine dining restaurant, you are on the front line dealing with guests. It is absolutely crucial that you are cordial, warm and friendly and make everyone feel welcome and taken care of.
  • While you are responsible for a certain section of the dining room, be aware of what’s going on in the rest of the room. If there is a way you can help your co-workers, please do so. We need to make sure that everything runs smoothly, and the best way to do that is to work as a team
  • If there is a delay in service for any reason, or if a guest makes a special request of any kind, please let a manager know right away.
  • Complete all side work at the beginning and end of each shift and make sure your workstation is fully stocked with all necessary items before each shift.

Guests don’t always distinguish runners from servers, so you need to know everything about the restaurant and you must be able to answer any question a guest might have. Make sure to also let any of your co-workers who weren’t at the meeting know what’s going on so that they can be informed as well
  • In that same vein, if you are unable to attend a pre-meal meeting for any reason, it is your responsibility to get the information from someone else before your shift  begins
