table setting

The restaurant dining room plays the largest role in the overall vibe and look of your restaurant. The look and feel of your restaurant consist of many things such as the wait staff, décor and tables and chairs. The types of tables and chairs you choose for your restaurant determines what type of restaurant your guests perceive it to be. For example, long tables promote family-style meals, small tables for two promote intimate settings for guests, and pub-style tables promote mingling amongst guests.

  1. What type of food are you going to serve? Gourmet-type food often lends itself to more intimate table seating suitable for a party of two or a party of four. Southern-style comfort foods tend to go well with family-style seating with rectangular or round tables to seat bigger parties. McCourt offers many styles and sizes of tables—from the Flip-Top Pedestal Table to The Legacy rectangular table to Farmhouse.

  1. Consider the dining room square footage and design. How much of the total building’s square footage will be allotted to the dining area? While restaurant booths can save on space, they can also be hard to move around to accommodate diners. Traditional tables and chairs can be moved to accommodate seating for larger parties. Additionally, the ability to move the tables and chairs allows for easier cleaning. The design should be welcoming, but allow for maximum seating capacity.
