    Pros

    I likked working for Daniel Boulud - he is totally crazy but he cares about everything!! They promote from within, lots of managers move to differnt properties. Decent people

    Cons

    Long hours, a lot of picky customers, working Sunday brunch. So expensive to live and work in NYC

    I worked at The Dinex Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I served tremendous wines. I was able to really refine my skills as a Sommelier. I experienced advancement within the company.

    Cons

    A negative is that the way the restaurant was set up required the sommeliers to walk through the kitchen, a hallway and down a flight of stairs to get wine. It took us off the floor for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to not give too much attention to the VIP's because it is distracting to other diners and makes them feel less important.

    Pros

    The people that work at Café Boulud are one of a kind. Everyone is supportive of expanding your knowledge and skills in all aspects food and bev. As a generalization, the managers are amazing. Benefits are unbeatable: free health insurance after 3 years with the company, 401k, and paid time off.

    Cons

    Clientele can be demanding and particular. Scheduling isn't always seamless, but that's part of the industry. Family meal leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Hold staff members more responsible.
