My diner has 4 stars at the moment. It's the premade diner from the game I have changed a little.



I started with 1 host, 1 waitress and 1 cook/chef. But it's hard to keep up with just 1 chef in the long run. I have educated my staff and promoted them. My sim is there all the time and "nurses" the guests. But she´s still unemployed confused

I really miss that you can set the openinghours. But it's fun. When I reach 5 stars I'll build my own restaurant and make my own menu Big Grin

Yes my first 5 star rating applause

Congrats to reaching 5 star rating for your diner, Noeddehaven!  high five Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate HappyTrio HappyTrio

I have yet to try the managing part. I do have a sim that owns a retail business, ended up firing the help cause well they were no help. lol So her and her hubby are currently the owners and hired help! I get exhausted just playing them and they always return home late at night, starving and about to drop dead on the floor. Laughing

I can just imagine the state of well being that my restaurant managing sims would be in! eeek One of these days I'll give it a try.

Anywho, I built another diner, it isn't up to the gallery yet, but I thought I'd share a pic of my family out for dinner at the new restaurant in their world called Sky Needle.





I just love how nice the food images now look! And apparently because my female adult sim is high enough in the cooking skill, the plate she had she is able to make it, her hubby who doesn't have the cooking skill can't make his but he sure did think it was delish! My little girl didn't care for the root beer float, and ended up throwing it away!

It's nice how the waiters come around and clear up the dishes that are empty right away. I have had some instances where my sims have gotten up from the table before getting served or waited on and wandered over to other tables to chat. scratch And I've seen an NPC actually get up from her table, bring her drink over to another table put it down go back to her table only to get back up again and go get her drink. Surprised  I thought they said that this wasn't suppose to happen. I don't mind them getting up to go chat with other customers, then again if they are eating that is kinda rude. Head Desk but what the NPC did kinda made me dizzy with all her moving around. wacky  Ha HA

@Mamajanaynay The gurus said that the Sims can do whatever they like until the food comes (go to the bar, swim around, etc.). Then they will automatically go back to their respective tables and eat. But some have noted that there is a glitch that pops up sometimes when it comes to drinks. They'll stand up to drink them, chat, and then sit back down. Hopefully, the next patch will fix that. thumbs up

I did hear that comment made by the guru's and as I said, I didn't mind my sims getting up and wandering over to other tables to chat, I was only speculating that if they did it while those customers were eating it would be rather rude. With your sims getting up and chatting or going to the bathroom definitely adds reality to the game and I know it must be a glitch with the NPC's as it had only happened once. I was just noting how watching that NPC move around like she did was making me dizzy because when I build on a lot and if it is one I intend to share either on the gallery or elsewhere, I test it and that means I look at everything. Not just routing for my sims but I look to see if other sims have any issues that I may not be aware of because I'm not in control of them. thumbs up

Work is preventing a proper playing of my game.
I am very happy to see your pictures, comments and impressions. Hoping I can play this weekend.

I decided to give managing a restaurant a whirl. I had a critic come in and I got a 4 star review! cheers Celebrate cheers



Which brought my overall rating up to a 3 star restaurant!  high five


I made sure that because of the type of food that is on the menu, I didn't open my restaurant up until around noon - 1pm (sim time of course) and only kept it open for roughly 8 hours. This way my sim and her employees wouldn't get burnt out and had plenty of time to relax. I have sent my first hired chef, waiter and host to training 3 times, I've earned enough perk points to where I added a second waiter and they have been sent to training twice and a second chef who will be going on her first training class when I pop into my game again. I have also compensated my staff's efforts by giving raises too.

When a customer or patron would enter into the restaurant and were seated I would greet each person at the table, watch them for any clues as to what they are experiencing. If I saw any little bubbles with a red out line to them I would mouse over that person to see what they were feeling, then send my sim to check with them. If they dissatisfied with the meal, I would offer either a free drink or dessert of their choice and if that still didn't work I comped the whole meal. I've only had to do the comp meal thing a couple times, most of the time all patrons were happy with their meal and overall experience while dining in my restaurant. I also frequently checked with my staff to make sure things weren't amiss them either.

It's been a hard road so far but each day my staff and my restaurant get better and better.

That sounds like a lot of work Mamaj, but seems like you are enjoying it.

@MerryWiddow, it is a lot of work and I am enjoying playing this sim and running a restaurant. I tried the retail and ended up firing all the employees and haven't gone back to it. No

Other than a hasty ZipDash to the bathroom she seems okay now.

So my restaurant has made it to getting a 5 star review


And is now a 4 star restaurant...


But man is it hard getting it to a 5 star restaurant! I've had a few customers leave disgruntled because their food never showed up even though I Prioritized it and I was at 4 1/2 stars. Thanks to those few customers who left without getting served, it dropped back down to 4 stars. Mad

The game does not like to make things 'easy'.  Congrats on the higher rating.
I haven't had time to try running a restaurant but love my Sims going to one on a date.

I did discover when my sims got up from the table to do an action prompt, and had just been served their main course, that the waitress took it away pale so they never got to eat it. And they never got their dessert but they seemed OK about it.

I think there a lot of glitches with this pack. Just today I had one waiter turn into an adult, then she turned into an elder immediately after and then she died!


Then after grim left my first server that I hired aged into an elder and she died!


I'm selling my restaurant cause it's now known sim world wide it's the Restaurant of Death. eeek Not good for business to be having grim show up all the time.  Ha HA

The second server I hired well he either died at home or he quit cause when I went into manage employees he was no longer there.

Before the first waiter died, all the patrons in my restaurant had a 5 star above their head. After she died it dropped immediately to a 3 star. Head Desk

I thought about exiting out and not saving then opening up that one again, but figured it might happen again and I had so much accomplished before that. So I opted to just selling the restaurant. I did notice though that the last waiter to die, well she didn't get banished to the netherworld or have her urn destroyed. It's still in the restaurant! Maybe when I send my sims there for dinner we might get served by a ghost waiter? Surprised
