A Hostess is responsible exclusively for dealing with patrons in a restaurant. It is their duty to escort customers to correct tables, hand them the menu, make suggestions and so on. They are also expected to entertain guests and check up on them as often as possible. Complaints are also generally registered with the Host or Hostess.
Host and Hostesses are required to be polite and friendly, naturally. They often work directly under the Restaurant Manager and above the waiters.
