W: Good evening, how can I help you?

J: We have a reservation at 8 o’clock.

W: Can you please give me your full name?

W: Yes, you have a dinner reservation for two. Please come this way.

W: Here are the menus. Would you like something to drink?

J: Yes, I would like whiskey with ice.

M: I would like a glass of red wine, dry.

W: Excellent choice. (Alegere excelentă)

W: Red wine for the lady and whiskey for the gentleman. What would you like to order?
