If you are writing a restaurant hostess cover letter be sure to mention your expertise at greeting guests and assigning tables as quickly as possible without overloading any one station, as well as correcting problems, taking care of customers' special needs and reporting unsatisfactory service to the manager on duty, as well as taking reservations and checking on the opening and closing duties of servers and bus persons. This and other useful information related to this work and the applicants' experience should be included in all restaurant hostess cover letters.

Dear Ms. Trumbull:
On JobBankUSA.com I saw your posting for a restaurant hostess. I was pleased to see it since I'm looking for such a position part-time. I have two years of experience in the restaurant industry in this type of work. I'm good with the public, enjoy taking care of people, seating them and making sure I meet any of their specific requirements, such as a high chair for a toddler, wheel chair access, or a table away from the kitchen area. I am also used to overseeing the opening and closing duties of servers and bus persons.
Please give me a call at 879-567-9090 and I'll be happy to visit your restaurant to meet in person and discuss what you expect from the restaurant hostesses you work with.
Thank you for taking time to read my cover letter and for considering me for the job.
