A waiter in a French restaurant or hotel.
- We sat down at our table, the waiter, or should I say garçon, handed us our menus.
- His father was a garçon before him, and from childhood he has been instructed in the family art, learning celerity and grace of movement, with that patience, politeness, and amiability by which he is distinguished.
French, literally 'boy'.
