Job Description for Maitre d'

Although the position is not quite as common in fine dining restaurants as it once was, many such establishments still utilize the services of a maitre d'. The term is a shortened version of the French phrase “maitre d'hotel”, which literally means “master of the house”. The maitre d' may directly report to a front of house manager, or this job title may simply be the one the restaurant uses interchangeably for that position.
