Apart from the delicacy factor and ambience of the restaurant there are some of the other factors that could impact your order at a restaurant. According to research, some of the factors are more likely to impact what you order at a restaurant, no matter how well you have navigated the menu.

Scientists at Cornell University's Food and Brand Lab have provided with some of the surprising facts about the same. Here are these:

Your waiter’s BMI: According to a study published in the journal Environment & Behavior, you are more likely to order dessert when your waiter had a high BMI--and the effect was greater on slimmer diners. Diners with a heavier waiter drank 17 percent more alcohol than those with a slimmer server.

The Dining partner’s weight: Research published in the journal Appetite shows that your friend's body size can impact what you eat too.

Ambience: According to a research published in the journal PPsychological Reports that people who ate fast food in a fine dining setting (with jazz music and soft lighting) ate for longer than those who chowed down in a typical fast food setting but actually consumed less food.

Names of foods: A 2014 study published in the International Journal of Hospitality Managent found that a restaurant's menu has a big impact on what you end up ordering. The more descriptive the name of the food, the more likely you are to order it.
