A "restaurant cover" is a table setting for one person to dine, therefore four people sitting at one table would be four "covers". Cover could mean an individual diner or the entire meal served to an individual diner.

Do not confuse the term "cover" with "table" or "cover charge".

A restaurant cover charge is a fee that is required to enter an establishment.
