- A table that is not properly cleared can easily create a bad impression. One should strive towards having as few items on the tables possible.
- Wait to clear glasses and plates until more than one guest at a table is finished, so guests who are still eating or drinking do not feel rushed
- After all guests have finished their course, all plates, cutlery and side dishes related to the dish must be removed.
- For removing equipment from the table, the same service rules apply as for serving the items.
