Ristorante da Toscano is looking for talented, experienced, and professional Server to be part of our team and bring guests experiences to the next level.
Servers must have some form of fine dining restaurant experience already, and a knack for hospitality. We're building relationships with neighborhood guests; and taking the time to truly engage and get to know the families that frequent the restaurant is important.
Having a solid wine and food foundation is key to building those experiences here.
You will be expected to keep up with seasonal menu changes, craft cocktail and the wine list. Candidates must be 21 years of age to serve/pour alcohol.
We are looking to build a team that can work with us to offer unique experiences every night, by using your own professional skill set.
