Some comments on the previous post have once again inspired me to respond. First, if I may direct you to my first post regarding large groups. I think it will give you a little insight into where I am coming from.
Any other issues with separate cheques are mostly related to un-trained/disorganized service staff, but I have literally witnessed emotional breakdowns happen from servers trying to separate a cheque for a seat switching large groups. The poor girl couldn't work the rest of her shift - and imagine someone else trying to separate the bills! Not to mention if you don't work in a restaurant that has a POS system, every cheque has to be written and calculated by hand.
Whew, that was a lot to take in all at once! As always, thank you all so much for reading and remember, intimate table or giant group at the end of the day I love to serve you and hope we can accommodate your needs, whatever they may be!
