I have a question. When someone is assigned a table for six or eight would it be considered rude if you want to go right to the entree and skip appetizer, soup and salad?
Can you ask the waiter to bring your entree while the others are eating their appitizer?
Do you have to wait while everyone else at the table eats all the courses.
We have been assigned a very late seating at 8:30, if we eat all those courses we won't be done until 10. We want to do the right thing and not be rude.
Can anyone tell me what the right thing to do is, so as not to annoy our table mates.
