This is pretty good overall, just a few notes.

Food is an uncountable noun, which means you cant have 1 food or 2 food, etc. but you can count an "item of food" or a "dish". It is also common to spell out smaller numbers (usually 1-10), so "one item of food and one drink"

a "manner" is a way of behaving, whereas a "courtesy" is a polite gesture and I think that fits a little better here. you could also say "It is not a rule, but is considered good manners, when eating at an Izakaya"

"Table charge" might be better for a restaurant. "cover charge" is the kind of term you'd expect at a nightclub.

"a la carte" is a French loanword often used in English and it refers to food that can be ordered as separate items, so "an a la carte menu"
