    Default question

    I work at a restruant.

    there are some tables along the window side. Others you have to
    go up some steps to get there.

    Looks like:
    tables
    -----------------|
    --
    | tables
    -------------------------


    I know "upstairs" is not correct. but How can I ask the custmors
    do you prefer window side or up ?????????

    You could say "upper level" and "lowel level" if the height is more than a step or two. If all the lower tables are by a window, I would ignore the height and use "interior" and "window". :wink:
