    He gestured the customer to take a sit at the table

    Am I right when I say: "He gestured the customer to take a sit at the table"? Do I need any preposition after the verb "gesture"?

    Either use "He gestured to the customer", or, "He gestured for the customer".

    "To take a seat at the table" or "to sit at the table".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
