When something is "a lot to take in" it is generally something overwhelming or inspiring. So after a difficult class someone might say "That was a lot to take in." In this case, it seems that the lady was suggesting that the waiter was very handsome (or we might say "strikingly handsome"). :o)

Just that he is very handsome. We also use this term when somebody has a very complicated personality or has an overbearing personality.
