It means a department where you wait at tables (if you are a steward) and see that your guests get their meals on time. Your services and the way you handle the guests regarding their orders, preferences and seating is usually handled by F & B department. Your are among the staff who comes in close contact with the guests and its your service that would decide if they wish to come again.
