When a guest is to be at table a water glass is to be set at each setting. When under a roof “Water for here” is to be served in a glass. The water glass is to be set to the right of the plate space above the tip of the knife. Yes, this is your glass.
In a private home, each water goblet is to be filled ¾ full prior to the time people come to the table.
In a commercial dining room, water is to be served, after people are seated, from the right. When a beverage is to be served in addition to water, a water glass can be used for it or a glass specifically named for the beverage to be served may be added to the right of it.
In informal service, it can be provided when requested and given in a ceramic glass or a cup. Avoid asking for and or using a lid or a straw. At some point, omit the Sippy cup and risk that the drink might not tip.
Before taking a drink of any beverage eating implements are to be placed in the rest position for the style in which you are eating. Pat or blot your mouth with the corner of your napkin and return it to your lap.
A water glass is to be picked up by the stem with the right hand, and with elbow down and in, taken to the mouth, and a sip (pour) of water is to be taken.
The rest and finished position for the glass is in the table setting position. At a table, avoid placing a napkin under a water glass.
In a private home, the water glass can be refilled at the table, by a server, or guests from a pitcher on the table, or the hostess can offer it from a pitcher on a sideboard.
In a commercial dining room, the water glass can be refilled by a server without being lifted from the table.
