In the hospitality industry, there is often debate about what really matters in a restaurant – food, service or ambience. Everyone has a different perspective on the topic, and none of them is necessarily wrong.
For most people, they visit a restaurant to eat some great food. If the food isn’t up to standard, then most people won’t bother returning to the restaurant ever again. The second most important aspect is the service – no one wants to be treated poorly while they are trying to enjoy a nice night out.
Finally, there are the ‘added extras’ such as music and ambience. While these may not be must-haves, it definitely improves the dining experience.
Here are some reasons why the ‘added extras’ of music & overall ambience will improve your dining experience:
Overall Experience Matters
Going to a restaurant is never just about the food; it is about the overall experience. A consumer goes to a restaurant to relax and unwind while having their favourite foods and drinks.
Every little detail matters when it comes to enhancing the customer’s experience. However, these factors that define experience are different to each person.
Ambience and Music Boost Your Mood
After a long day, when you go to a restaurant to dig into your favourite meal, you don’t want to find yourself in a less than happy environment; you want to walk into a relaxing and joyful space that delivers the right ambience. Music is powerful enough to change someone’s mood and, therefore, the ambience.
A good ambience is made up of perfect lighting, a comfortable seating arrangement, and visually pleasing interiors. A beautiful environment instantly makes us happy, and everyone loves to have dinner in a restaurant with a great ambience. After all, that is what we first experience before our food arrives.
Also, no one wants only to be able to hear the sounds of cutlery and people chewing when they walk into a restaurant, and they want those sounds to be drowned out by good music.
Good music and ambience distract the customer from any irritating noises while making their wait easier. When the atmosphere is good, they expect the same from the food, keeping their curiosity intact.
