Good afternoon, Miss. I have a reservation.

[00:00:02]
Translation

Good afternoon. Of course. What's your name?

Luis

[00:00:06]

Ana

[00:00:08]
Muy bien, meaning 'very good' (ie, 'fine', 'ok'). Don't use muy bueno here, a common mistake for Spanish learners
Muy bien,
señor Luis. Bienvenido. Necesito confirmar más información.
Translation

Very well, Mr. Luis. Bienvenido. I need to confirm more information.

Luis

To say 'it's ok' in Spanish, use the verb estar with bien - está bien
Está bien.
No hay problema.
Translation

That's fine. No problem.

Ana

Dígame is the formal way to say 'tell me'. It's the imperative form of decir, conjugated for usted

Perfect. So, tell me. What's your ID number? Where are you from? What's your phone number, please?

Yes, of course. My ID number is 56 879567. I'm from Bogotá and my phone number is 4 66 87 87 90 54.
