There are several different types of dining experiences and they range from casual dining experiences where you dine and chat with your friends, to fine dining experiences where you are invited to a party or reception and are treated to fine food and wine. Fine dining experiences can also refer to higher-end restaurants and hotels, where you are treated like royalty for a night. The type of fine dining you go to depends largely on personal taste and budget. Fine dining is usually more formal in tone and atmosphere. The atmosphere will be one of warmth and indulgence. Generally, this type of dining offers better value for the money because the prices are often higher. After all, these establishments cater to a higher-end clientele. Fine dining offers more personalized service, especially when it comes to table manners and proper table etiquette.
Another aspect of fine dining restaurants that is often overlooked is their selection of silverware. Often, a silverware display is limited to a few types of wine, which leads diners to feel that their silverware is less important than the actual meal being prepared. When diners are presented with a full selection of silverware, they tend to be more impressed and look forward to dining at the restaurant again. While most fine dining restaurants strive to provide a fun atmosphere, some focus on service. Some restaurants that place a higher emphasis on service have noticed an increase in customer satisfaction as a result.
