    Question If I'm his secretatry, he's my...?


    I am from Russia and was trying to phone a restaurant (in London) to book a table for my employer. I didn't know what to say though. I said that I wanted to book a table for my employer on Friday.

    Was employer the right term? or should I have said I wanted to book a table for my boss or another term?

    Thanks a lot :)

    Employer is the right term, but to be honest, when you're booking a restaurant table for someone else, you really don't have to explain who they are in relation to you. All you really need to do is tell the person "This is Natalya from XYZ Company, I'd like to make a dinner (or lunch, whatever) reservation for X number of people for this Friday, under the name [give boss' name here]."
