What I enjoy most at Il Fornaio is when my guest leave with great satisfaction with my service as a waiter and great experience with the Italian cuisine. But I think as a employee at Il Fornaio management is not always supporting with equipment and is difficult sometimes to do a better performance but I do my best to find the way to not jeopardize the guest experience.
Great place to work, lots of room to grow with in the company, managers pretty good as well is a great place to work, great coworkers, they're like one big family from front of the house to back of the house!
consistent lots of regulars , no surprises , companies been around a long time and they’re a bit stuck in their ways for better or for worse, that being said job is super secure and easy to get the hang of
Don’t waste your time is a waste of your talent move on. There are better things out there with better pay and more respectful management to their employees. Every time there is a meeting is about how to take away the very little benefits that employees have, and I don’t mean really benefits. They will fix your schedule so you won’t put more than qualifying hour for benefits.
If you have any self respect, don't work here. There were many managers that worked there during the time I was employed. That is never a good thing in a company. The GM is the type to just allow things to keep happening the way they are as long as they sort of work. No improving as a company or trying to work better as a team. He just wants to stay afloat, that's it. Whenever we got some like new spoons that we needed for a while it was like,"wow! Look at that! New spoons!". He did not stay on top of things like that or even care to ask the employees what they needed to do their jobs. A lot of simple stuff like that was overlooked here.
I had a great time working at Il Fornaio because of the people and because the quick pace of the environment suited my personality! I learned valuable customer service, as well as restaurant management skills.

I don't recommend this place because at first they call you to work to a trial, and when you go there they don't look like you work, then with the excuse that you don't have enough experience, they don't call you back and they don't even pay you. They already know who will go to work in stead of you the next day and the latter will be exploited just like they did with you.
I was the opening bartender for the Corte Madera store in Marin County of SF. My duties were to set the bar for the day and maintain customer service for my guest and service the servers on the floor for libations and barista service. I love the interaction with guest and developed a repeat clientele at my bar and was able to handle food orders, delivery and service the servers on the floor. I maintained the bar as for specific juice, drink ingredients and stock on a daily basis.

Bar area needs an improvement to better deliver service.
I understand every business wants and needs to make a profit or even maximize its profit. When business is slow and a full-time worker has less than 40 hours to work, that's when you start thinking about your financial needs and plan. Would you be better off with another job?
