A classy restaurant should pay decent living wages to the staff. Tiping should never be mandatory

The American habit of putting the knife down and switching hands is so graceless and unrefined. When I see Americans eating like that it disgusts me.

Never, ever have a bill brought to the table when you are hosting a dinner party. Also I always have custom menus printed for my guests with no prices, only descriptions.

My first impression of the white female is that she is a stuffy old broad.

I would be very interested in watching this woman eat peas or rice with tines facing down. Just saying....that meal would be an hour and a half long just trying to eat those two foods.

... Im always a foodie.. when my parents were invited to these "high-class" parties. I was always told to: 1.) LEAVE FOOD ON THE PLATE 2.) Don't shovel food in 3.) Take 30 seconds in between every bite. 4.) Wear tidy and professional clothing ~aand I could never do it. My parents and family always tells me I am the shame of the family. "lol" But it ain't my fault that I love food so much. However I do manage to keep my mouth closed while I eat, as it is much healthier. ( p.s. my family don't ) I honestly think that all of these table etiquette aren't that important. The most important and useful table manner for me is: probably to NOT MAKE ANY noises. No slurping No sipping and I am an expert at these stuff . I honestly don't get wearing clothes to impress. Buying clothes that are expensive and getting no money nothing in return. So when I go out, I put on a sweater, wear comfortable clothing.

this lady always looks at the host like she is despising her, manner being a human being is that you dun see ppl like this! If I were to sit down and have a meal with this lady at a nice and elegant restaurant, I'd prefer stepping on the chair with one feet and eat a Mcdonald's burger home.

Changing hands makes eating a longer, slower process, allowing you to eat less. In the system where one keeps the fork in the left hand and turns the tines up, the person sitting next to them is at risk of being slammed in the face with their elbow. It's horrible when someone else is taking up your space as well as theirs.
Lasse Manninen (1 year ago)
Sorry biatzh. That fork is not fishfork. Fishfork has 4 prongs, and middlehole is deeper than on both side. That fork is for cakes and sweet pastries.

I am a waiter, today a guest asked me how the green tomato juice was. I explained it had a cucumber note to it being that we use cucumber in the mix. He says "when people say cucumber flavors I think of semen" People are just disgusting these days. This is in a nice place in NYC. Bunch of lowlifes.

Americans don’t have to eat in the continental style. It’s perfectly fine to cut your food, place the knife down, and eat with the fork in the right hand. She’s right about placing the napkin on the chair. The napkin should not be greasy, because you only dab your lips on the corners. All this etiquette is for nice table manners in a nice restaurant or sit down dinner. Americans are more casual now. We can eat certain foods with our hands, use paper towels, etc. Good manners also take into account where you are eating, what you are eating and with whom. If I’m out at a barbecue with friends I’ll do as the hostess does. I’m not going to sit there and eat my barbecue like that old guest. She looks a bit stuffy and old fashioned. We can overdo certain things and come across as pretentious. Be conscious of your surroundings. Know your good manners, but be more concerned about being gracious, polite and kind.

Who said we have to eat this way ? Sure I'm all for manners as such, but what if I don't eat this way,, then what ? When I was growing up,, as long as you're not burping or reaching over the table, and your hands are clean and polite enough to pass the dishes around, you are okay. I have no desire to eat under such regulations.

Talking about etiquette, how about you shut your mouth and let the guest talk. Nothing I hate more than interrupting people and being interrupted.

It's called interviewing. You only have so much time and have to keep it going
Katelyn Murphy (1 year ago)
This is part false. Everyone used the "American" way of eating until around the 1850's when a french table manners book came out with the term "Continental" which adapted the unnecessary change of fork being changed from one hand to another in Europe, mostly accepted by the aristocratic community... Look it up...
La Ing (1 year ago)
I like this...its informative
Joan In Florida (1 year ago)
She's dead wrong about flipping the fork. Americans do not eat "Continental" style with their tines down.  It is considered an affectation by many.  It shouts either I'm a hick or "Look at me, I've been to Europe."  At a certain class level, it is assumed that everybody has been to Europe.
Momma Bear (1 year ago)
Real Name yes, tines down and not putting the knife down is considered European. Switching utensils is American. Neither is wrong or rude. Also, elbows on the table is perfectly acceptable in certain parts of Europe (such as France). Unless it's overt and a person is slumped over their plate, I see nothing wrong with it. I want my guests to be comfortable.

Speaking from an American perspective. Does not apply to a majority of viewers from other countries. Americans are the masters at observing bad manners.

Putting the knife down then switching the fork is European style as far as I know. Americans are more practical. As a righty knife in powerhand fork in left. Cut it, tine it, eat it.

Some functions require (force!) me to learn fine dining, that's why I'm researching this, but I honestly think it's all tosh-- I'd rather not attach 300 rules to the simple business of eating food; sit, stand, and talk in the most expedient, unpretentious way; have hearty, uninhibited conversations; and treat waiters as persons, not furniture. Yes, manners are universal, but etiquette is for the elite.
GreenFlashAtSunset (2 years ago)
+snow ice Oooooohh sarcasm? Scroll back up and stare long and hard at that word I typed: *nuances* . Say, if a lad talked back to his mom, would you call that bad etiquette as well as bad manners? Duh? 😱😱😱
Iam Alice (2 years ago)
GreenFlash Sunset and thank you for teaching me that in all my years as a etiquette instructor I would have never know that manners and etiquette is all about treating other people with respect.!😱😱😱
GreenFlashAtSunset (2 years ago)
+snow ice You could say that. Or perhaps you could say the word manner was invented for people who don't know how to spell etiquette (ha ha). But I'm sure you wouldn't deny there are nuances. Here, let nancymueller.com do the explanation for you: *Etiquette* is a code of polite conduct based on social acceptance and efficiency, while *manners* are polite behaviors that reflect an attitude of consideration, kindness and respect for others. See, I may be no dainty lady but I'm a clumsy, well-mannered slob :-)
Iam Alice (2 years ago)
manners and etiquette are one and the same.
Jimjim (2 years ago)
By elite you mean the top of our social class? I'm no billionaire but I'd rather carry myself as an elite and get noticed than a regular old joe who nobody cares about.

Why use a presenter who is a complete ignoramus? By the way, I do not agree with leaving the napkin on the seat of the chair. A greasy napkin on an upholstered chair is patently wrong. Leave it neatly (but not folded) on the bread plate or that spot if no bread plate.
Deborah Graves (10 months ago)
One etiquette book said it was ok to out a greasy roll on the tablecloth, if there was no bread plate. To get the grease out, moisten the tablecloth a little bit, and put undiluted dishwashing liquid directly on the grease spot for not less than 24 hours. Or: don't use a tablecloth.
Yong Bang Yang (2 years ago)
At 3:40 isn't the fork suppose to be facing down? There are a few videos about table manners that contradicted each other. Can someone please explain it to me? Thanks!
SIMPLY JOYFUL (3 years ago)
I've heard napkin on table... now this one lady is saying on the chair. I am confused! What is considered the proper way????
Sarah Elizabeth (3 years ago)
+SIMPLY JOYFUL When in doubt, keep things off the table. No one will consider the chair impolite, but were you dining with someone who knows etiquette, they may consider the table impolite. Go with the chair.

"Raises hand"....but I m NOT young. LOL. My table manners are flawless, and they helped me a LOT in the corporate world for business lunches n dinners with clients n bosses, especially when I started as a youngling after university... :-) And yes, I grew up in a rural area on a farm, very poor, and didn t learn them from my parents or peers, but I started watching the (old generationally) rich and successful, how they talked, dressed, walked, behaved and ate...when working at my students job at a luxury hotel during my university years... :-)
