What side do you serve plates from?
Serve from the right If the customer’s plate is arranged in the kitchen it should be delivered to them from the right side. Pre-plated food (considering the exceptions above), beverages, all empty plates, and utensils should be served from the guest’s right.
Do you serve from the right and remove from the left?
Serve from a guest’s left, using your left hand, and clear from their right, using your right hand. Cutlery crossed in an X means a person isn’t finished with their plate. If the knife and fork are parallel, the guest is finished and you may remove their plate (assuming everyone else is also finished).

Beverages are served first. Always serve beverages from the right of the guest. While the guests are waiting for their meal, bread and butter must be served immediately. Waiting staff must ensure that the same is replenished as soon as it is over.
How do you clear a table?

When should you clear a table?
In general, it’s best practice to wait until all guests at a table have finished before clearing a course’s dishes, especially if you work in a relatively formal dining setting. Clearing one guest’s dish before the others may make his or her companions feel rushed and uncomfortable.
