Coast Linen Services is an awesome company and it makes sense because of there 5 star... customer service. I’ve been managing Esquína Latina for 3 years now and I’ve never had an issue. The driver Gabrielle as well is phenomenal, he will go above and beyond to ensure your order is correct. If your missing anything he will make sure you get it the next day. The restaurant has used them since they’ve been open (8 years) and will continue because loyalty is key and their entire company from top to bottom starting with Bobby who regularly checks in with me, are as loyal as they come .read more

I've done business with these guys for 8 years at all my restaurants. Service is second... to none! Tony has been outstanding. At my newest restaurant I tried out a competitor of theirs, but shortly after opening I realized how inferior their service was compared to Coast. Only few months I reached out to Tony to make the switch. I recommend Coast Linen Svc. for all your linen needs and more.-Michaelread more

I have been doing business with Coast Linen at Spain Inn Restaurant (Piscataway, NJ) and... at Manolo Tapas (NYC) for almost 15 years and their service is incomparable. From their sales representatives (Bobby and Martin), office staff and delivery team. I could not ask for a more attentive, professional and personalized service. They carry an extensive product list and go out of their way to always have everything in stock. It makes our job so much easier knowing that they are always more

What Fine Dining Patrons Want in Restaurant Linens 

fine dining restaurant linens

It does not take a foodie or a professional chef to know that we eat with our eyes first. Visuals have an effect on our overall perception of flavors. What is often forgotten in the conversation about “visual” dining is that it goes beyond the plate. It’s important to know what fine dining patrons want in order to give them the experience they are paying for. How your table is set up is just as crucial of an element as the food on it. This is even truer in fine dining.

What Fine Dining Patrons Want in Restaurant Linens

Fine dining patrons have the highest expectations for what goes into their experience, particularly on the following criteria:


Cleanliness is the non-negotiable element of any dining experience. Casual and formal diners alike unite in this requirement. However, because linens figure more prominently in a fine dining setup, they also figure heavily into what diners expect. In this context, cleanliness means linens should be stain-free and devoid of distinguishable smells. Your linens should also not show any visible signs of damage, like rips and loose threads.

User Comfort

The ideal fine dining experience is not just about satisfying the tastebuds. It’s a multisensory experience in which every element on the table plays a role. That includes your linens. This means that your linens should not be abrasive or scratchy. They should be soft to the touch and easy enough to pick up. In short, they should not, in any way, impede an otherwise lovely meal.

Presentability and Overall Quality

It goes without saying that visuals are a crucial part of any dining experience. Even more so when it comes to fine dining. That is why your linens should look great, too. They are, after all, the backdrop against which your exquisite dishes shall be displayed. What exactly makes table linens presentable, you ask? 

For one, they should appear clean. Second, they should look high-quality. This means that your linens should not look thin or cheap. If they’re colored or patterned, the shades should be even. They should also have a crisp, wrinkle-free appearance.
