美国人喜欢在外边吃饭,他们不太经常自己做饭。还有的美国人喜欢点外卖,尤其是纽约人,有的人路过快餐店只是在车里就完成了点餐。当你去美国餐馆享受大餐,或是宴请宾客,或是参加派对,这个时候怎么能不会点餐?该怎么用英语表达?

面对迎宾员:

迎宾员:“How many will you be tonight?” 或 “How many people are in your party?”


用餐者:“Just two”或“two people”.


点饮料:

服务员:“Can I bring you some water?” or “Can I get you some water?” 或者“Would you like tap or bottled water?”


用餐者:“Sure, we'll have some water please. Tap is fine.” 或者“Yes. I'd like some bottled water pls”


点沙拉:

用餐者: “I'd like to have the chef's salad, please.”


服务员: “What kind of salad dressing would you like?”


用餐者::“What are my options?”或 “What kind of salad dressings do you have?”


服务员:“We have:Balsamic Vinaigrette、Blue cheese dressing、Caesar dressing、French dressing、Ginger dressing、Honey Dijon、Italian dressing、Ranch dressing、Russian dressing、Thousand Island dressing”


用餐者:“I'll have Caesar dressing, please.”


点餐:

服务员:“Would you like to hear the specials for tonight?” 或者“We have some specials this evening…”


服务员:“Are you ready to order?”


服务员:“Do you have any questions about the menu?”


用餐者:“We're ready to order. I'd like to have the steak please.”


服务员:“How would you like that done?” or “How would you like that cooked?”


用餐者:“Medium, please.”


肉根据烧熟程度分类,分为:微熟/中熟/熟透


rare > medium rare > medium > medium well > well done


出于健康考虑,有些餐馆至少会将肉加工到中熟。
