    to bring to take to get

    Hi, I'd like to know if the following sentences are correct

    At the bar the waiter asks:

    What can I bring you?
    What can I take you?
    What can I get you?

    Please tell me what's the difference in meaning and if they are not correct why.
    Thanks Rip.

    #2 doesn't sound right at all.
    #1 & #2 are basically the same thing.

    #2 you can say: What can I take from you?

    You can bring sb sth.
    You can take sth from sb.
