    В ресторане

    Two friends go to a restorant. There the waitress reads a long series of dishes that are in the menu. The friends say:

    А- Подождите, подождите! После такой закуски я вообще ничего не смогу съесть!
    Б- Я тоже. Знаете что, принесите нам холодную закуску, чтоб было всего понемножку, но не слишком много, то есть, ассорти.
    Оф.: Прекрасно. И водку, конечно?

    What the second friend says is in what I have some problem. I don't know if he addresses (with formal Вы) to his friend or to the waitress, or to both, or (and this is what I think) may be some error in the text.

    Would you translate this second phrase? Thanks

    К официантке ясен пень. И никакой ошибки здесь нет.

    He addresses the waitress politely (Вы-form of address)

    You know, could you bring us cold snacks, so that there is a little of everything, but not too much. An assortment, that is.

    You know what, bring us some cold hors d'oeuvres, a little bit of everything but not too much, a mixed plate so to speak.
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
