Good evening, sir, and welcome to River Restaurant.

We have a dinner reservation for four at 5:30 under the name of Lee.

Yes, Mr. Lee, if you would please be seated over in the waiting area, our waitress will be with you in a moment.

Thank you. Would it be OK if we have a cocktail while we are waiting?

Of course, I will tell her.

I would really prefer an outside table. Would that be possible?

Sure, if you would like one of those tables, I could seat you right away.
