Model Answer 1:

Dear Manager,

I am writing to express my gratitude for the service I was offered on 30th December when I visited your restaurant along with my family and friends to celebrate my birthday. It was one of the most memorable Birthday events and your staff made it, even more, special by offering a complimentary Birthday Cake.

You have definitely won me as your permanent customer and I would love to recommend your restaurant to my acquaintances. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was very soothing and relaxing, Beautiful interiors and wonderful lighting system- accurately placed, neither too bright nor too low, make this place a perfect celebration and dining place. The taste of the food was just out of the world. Allow me to say that you made me nostalgic as the food tasted similar to what mother cooks for me back at home, though this made me miss my home and mother more!

However, I have a suggestion to make. You may think of introducing some discount cards or offer some corporate discounts to the people of the nearby area. This, I believe, would make our dine-outs more pocket-friendly.

I hope that you would consider this suggestion. Once again big thanks to you and your staff for making my birthday day more fantastic and special.

Your Sincerely,
Pooja Gupta

Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Last week on Saturday night some friends and I had dinner in your restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I am writing to thank you for the great evening that we had.

All my friends remarked afterwards on the standard of the food and service that we received. All the food was very tasty and well presented. Our waiter, whose name was James, was fast and friendly and put with well with our bad jokes! The restaurant itself was warm and friendly and the atmosphere showed that all the diners there were enjoying their evening.

I would like though to suggest one improvement. One of my friends is a vegetarian and he felt that the choice for vegetarians was little small. If you could develop that, it would be a great advantage to your restaurant.

Once again I would like to thank you for my highly enjoyable birthday dinner.

Yours faithfully,

Kelvin Smith

Model Answer 3:

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to thank you for giving me and my friends a very fantastic and memorable evening at your restaurant.

As you know, last week I celebrated my birthday with my friends at your restaurant, which turned out to be a great success. Everyone enjoyed the arrangements at the poolside and the decoration of sparkling lights with a soft and soothing music in the background. Coming to the food, the presentation was as mouth-watering as the food itself. The service was fabulous too.

I am very satisfied with your hospitality. However, I have few suggestions to make it even better. Firstly, I had friends with children, if you could have added some interesting games for them that would have made the party more interesting.  Secondly, you should have a professional photographer of your own to cover such events. It would be very convenient for your customers.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful. I once again thank you for your admirable services.

Regards,
Mansoor Afzal.

Sample Answer 4:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you to thank you for the fantastic food and service delivered on my birthday.

I visited your restaurant on 30th December with my friends to celebrate my birthday and all of us were very impressed with the overall experience. The food was delicious and well presented. I must mention the “Chicken Tandoori” dish that was served to us was the star of the evening, cooked to perfection and absolutely mind-blowing.

I really enjoyed the live music that was being played, it lightened up the whole ambience and I also liked the “Retro theme” of the restaurant. We were also very pleased with the service; all the staff members were friendly, attentive and served us with a smile. Our waiter also made few recommendations for drinks, which were good and something we have not tried before.

Though I would like to give one suggestion, as your restaurant is a non-smoking zone, it would be great, if you could also have a separate smoking area, where people can enjoy their meal and smoke at the same time. I am sure your customers will like this arrangement. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Thanks for making my birthday party memorable. My friends and I enjoyed it very much.

I will definitely recommend your restaurant to my friends and family.

Regards,
P

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing you this letter to thank you for your amazing service at the steak restaurant. My friends and I were celebrating my birthday last week at your restaurant and we enjoyed our time a lot. Your food is really good and has a special taste, every one of us really wanted to go back and try it again.

I also would like to take a moment to appreciate the great service by your employees. Although it was crowded, they were always available, smiling and made us feel welcomed and comfortable.

Last but not least, the atmosphere in the restaurant was really pleasant and we especially enjoyed the classical music you had in your playlist.

Finally, I think it would be great if you have more variety in beverage and desserts menus.

Again, thank you for this nice experience. We are definitely coming back.

Best Regards,

Sample Answer 6:

Dear Sir,

I am one of your regular visitors who had a birthday celebration at your renowned restaurant last week. I would like to thank you for the wonderful hospitality offered at your place.

All the arrangements were done perfectly. We enjoyed the scrumptious food served to us including both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Moreover, I am impressed with the politeness and the prompt service of your staff. The background lighting and music played that day was amazing, adding more to the ambience of the hall.

However, I would like to make some suggestions. The plants around the driveway need little more attention. They are not in a very appealing state! In addition to that, some crockery items have slight cracks and need to be replaced.

I hope that you will personally look into the matter and make possible rectifications in the interest of your business and valued customers.

Sincerely yours,
Karl Mark

Sample Answer 7:

Dear Sir or Madam,
 
My name is Rona Lyn Olivar. I celebrated my 25th birthday in your restaurant on the 9th of May, and that is just yesterday in the evening with my friends and relatives. The event was a great success and I must say that we really had so much fun that night. I am writing to you today because I want to thank you for the food served, the staff service and the atmosphere.
 
Firstly, the food was amazing. The chicken adobo that was served for us was cooked excellently. The sauce was so creamy and yummy. Secondly, all the restaurant crews were very friendly and accommodating. They smiled at every people inside and always asked how they can help us. And finally, the place gave us the peaceful environment that night. It was a nice atmosphere inside.
 
Because of those things I mentioned, I am recommending you to add more space. This is so because there are many people coming to your restaurant and to accommodate all of them, a more spacious place might be needed.
 
Thank you once again for serving me and my companions last night.

Yours faithfully,
R. Olivar

Model Answer 8:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you to say thanks for organising such a wonderful birthday party of mine. It was a great evening with fascinating arrangements which is still alive in my mind. Here I want to mention some key services you provided us to make this event memorable.

First of all, I would like to mention that the venue was so beautiful that it astonished my family and friends. You provided us with a big hall that was decorated with coloured lights and stage, having lots of candles and petals made the arrangements worth saying.

Secondly, I want to comment about foods and other services. The Birthday cake you provided us was so beautiful that it really impressed me and my friends. After that, the restaurant severed us Platters, with each thing we imagined was a beautiful addition to the menu in this price. I and all companions really were impressed to see these unique types of paintings around the stage.

Lastly, I want to add some suggestions that will definitely increase the worth of your restaurant around the community, that is, "The live music". If you hired a band to perform live music will improve the excitements in the parties and people will love to choose your restaurant among others.

Once again I am very thankful for admirable services.

Regards,

B

Model Answer 9:

Dear Sir,

I am Vishwa Vinutna. I had celebrated my birthday party at your restaurant last week with my friends. I am writing this letter to thank you for making it a successful event.

My friends and I enjoyed food at your restaurant. The Cake was so nice and everyone liked it. Your culinary staff is expert at cooking delicious food and satisfied each and everyone’s taste. The food was not only superb but also of reasonable price. Moreover, hotel staff was so polite and very keen to look after the needs of all of us. The service offered is praiseworthy. To add more, the restaurant depicts the nature’s beauty perfectly with full of glistening greenery all around. The soothing and pleasant atmosphere made the event unique and even more attractive.

However, there are some improvements which I suppose makes your restaurant still more appealing. Firstly, the increase in staff members is quite essential. Furthermore, it would be great if you could include a wide variety of cuisines in your menu.

I trust you would accept my suggestions. I look forward to seeing the improvements in the restaurant.

Yours faithfully,

Vishwa Vinutna.

Model Answer 10:

Dear manager,

This is an appreciation letter regarding the service rendered by you and your staff in the last week where I had celebrated my 31st birthday on Thursday.

It gives me an immense pleasure to thank you all for the service rendered to us, firstly to mention is the food of different cuisines wherein we were appalled by the excellent dishes prepared by your cooks on our order. I was so happy when my friends quoted that they had an excellent dish of their likeness and ate up to their stomach full.

Secondly, the prevailing atmosphere in the restaurant was so serene that you and all your staff right from the welcome guy to the stewardess were so cordial that we felt a homely appeal. Need to mention that overall the party was an excellent memoir to be remembered.

I, take this opportunity to mark this letter as a token of appreciation for the success of the birthday party in which your restaurant and your staff played a pivotal role.

Thanking you for your support.

Best wished,
P

Dear John,

I would like to thank you for the wonderful party that you arranged on the eve of my anniversary. The guests who came to the celebration were very satisfied with the food, service and atmosphere.

I really appreciate the commitment shown by your staff during the party hours. They were very active and prompt on fulfilling demands and needs of my guests. One of my friends, Peter, was so impressed by the gesture of your staff that he specifically called me last night to thank me for the lovely arranged service during the party. He also left a thank note with some tips on his table for your workers. Thomas, a staff member, helped an elderly guest when he slipped in the bathroom and I would like to personally thank Thomas for his good deeds. Finally, I thank you for making our party enjoyable and memorable.

As a side note, I would like to suggest that the restaurant should play some traditional soft music during any party in future. This will add an extra ambience to the mood of the party .

Again thanking you for the lovely arrangement of my anniversary party and making it extraordinary for all of us .

Sincerely
Abhi.
