Come for the food, stay for the service — in the hospitality game, never a truer word has been spoken. While the talented chefs set the menu, the front of house set the scene for your meal, putting their craft into motion day after day, night after night to deliver an unforgettable dining experience. From bartenders to maître d’s to wait staff, it’s time to celebrate the best front of house personality. If there’s anyone you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.
