Is dinner countable or uncountable noun?
Dinner can definitely be countable-- "a dinner" refers to a special meal that one eats during a formal event: I attended a formal dinner with the governor last night. The president has three holiday dinners scheduled this month. But it can also be part of the expression "to have dinner"-- in which case, it is not countable: She had dinner with her sister yesterday. (Some people use the word "eat" instead of "have," but the rule is the same-- in this expression, 'dinner' is not countable. I will eat dinner at home tonight.)

What are the ways tableware can be laid out in formal dinner place settings?
In a formal dinner setting utensils are either on the left or right of the plate. The knives and spoons are set to the right of the plate and the forks are set to the left of the plate. If there is more than one fork like a salad fork, the salad fork will be placed further left to be used first. The same applies to a soup spoon which will be placed further right of the plate to be used first.
