    The "front of house" of any restaurant should be carefully planned so as to balance ambiance with function. Restaurant seating, wait stations and waiting areas are just a few of the areas to consider when planning a restaurant dining room. The course focuses on all aspects that characterise the front of the house experience as a worker. It stresses the importance for such a place to reflect the theme or concept of the restaurant. Particular focus is given to the needs of this space to be designed efficiently . Furthermore the course points out how without great customer service a restaurant cannot be successful. Training the front of the house staff to excel at customer service will be one of the main areas of study.
