建议 vs. 推荐 Hello, If you're at a restaurant but not sure what to order and want to ask the waiter/waitress for their recommendation, do I use the verb 建议 or 推荐? Or would you use some other verb? Thank you.

I think you'd better use 推荐. 推荐 emphasis on what he has known much about and then give the suggestion. 建议,no matter whether he knows it , he could give his own opinions. Example: 我推荐你去那个餐厅。(He had been to that resturant) 我建议你去那个餐厅。(Maybe he knows that resturant,maybe not)

建议 = suggest/suggestion 推荐 = recommend/recommendation So you should use 推荐 in this case. 你能给我推荐一些特色菜吗? Can you recommend me some signature dishes? 你有什么好的推荐? Do you have anything to recommend?

我向你推荐这道菜。 我建议你吃这道菜。

推荐 is better

"推荐" is better. “ 推荐” is to recommend. “建议” is to make a proposal.
