Waiter or waitress depending on gender.
IF they took the order AND brought food; waiter/waitress.
JUST brought food; server
I have always called them that.
That's what we have always called them .....
Waiter or waitress
I'm just used to those terms.
Waiter/waitress/server sound far too menial in this age of Political Correctness.
I suggest "Culinary Expediter".
I don't get it, either.
Kelner is waiter in Norwegian.
It's Kellner in German. Kellnerin for waitress.
That's what they are normally called where I am from.
