    Good about food and service from a restaurant.

    Would you please help me by correcting the following piece of writing with regards to grammar, vocabulary?

    ---------------------------------
    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am writing in regards to wonderful services and delicious food that we experience at your restaurant last night.

    Last night, my two best friends: Gil, Natia, my two daughters and I went to Pizzaria restaurant at the corner near my house in Hayfield Street for dinner. I was very excited since I had just completed a master degree a couple days ago and I would like to wine-and-dice my two best friends and daughters a slap-up meal as I promised them before I enrolled in the course. After reading many good testimonials from www.foody.com, we decided to go to the restaurant.

    What happened made us so happy and impressive. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The food orders arrived quickly, in good size, hot and inexpensive. In addition, the drinks were reasonably priced. We particularly impressed when our children became little impatient towards the end of the meal, then one of your staff, Harry, came and provided pencils, drawing materials for them to draw. That greatly eased great burdens of what had been a long tired day from our work.

    I suggest that you should consider giving Harry a small gift as a reward for his kindly support.

    Kind regards,
    Simon Smith

    Re: Good about food and service from a restaurant.

    Before anyone starts on your piece, can you explain what "Good about food and service" means in your title?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Because I cannot input tittle long, so I cut it short. The full requirement is as below:


    You and some friends ate a meal at a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, and you were very pleased with the food and service.


    Write a letter to the restaurant manager. In your letter:

    • give details of your visit to the restaurant
    • explain the reason for the celebration
    • say what was good about the food and the service

    Re: Good about food and service from a restaurant.

    OK, but titles are supposed to contain some/all of the words/phrases you are asking us about. A good title for this would have been "I am writing in regards to wonderful services". The entire content of post #3 should have been your opening in post #1.

    Who gave you this assignment and when are you due to submit it?

    Nobody gave me this assignment. I just randomly picked up this from a website to practice writing a letter.

    Re: I am writing in regards to wonderful services

    OK. If I was going to write such a letter, I would say;

    I had a wonderful experience at your restaurant last night.

    Then I would go on to describe the experience.

    I would not say "Dear Sir or Madam,. Instead, I would address the letter to the manager, using that person's name.

    Re: I am writing in regards to wonderful services

    And, these days, most of us wouldn't write a letter at all. We would write a review on a review site or post a brief version of it on the restaurant's Facebook or Twitter page. Anyway, here's how I would open:

    Dear [name of manager]

    I am writing in regards to compliment you on the wonderful services service and delicious food that we experienced at your restaurant last night.
