This word is from the Spanish servidora.

female server

This is not that commonly used in modern Filipino conversation.

A synonym could be tagasilbi.

In the old days, the Filipino word was closer to the meaning of the Spanish, which refers to a maid. But with the influence of English, any usage these days would more likely be equivalent to the English concept of “server.”

A male server would be a serbidor, from the Spanish servidor.
