I have an array in class array and I'd like to access it's members in class table. I'm lost on how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

using System;

public class Restaurant
{
    //Writes a welcome message.
    public void Welcome()
    {//start Welcome method

        Console.WriteLine("Welcome to Qdoba!\n");

    }//end Welcome method

    public class array //can't access these in the table class
    {
                    int[][] table = new int[8][];

            table[1] = new int[] { 0, item.Chips, item.Queso, item.Guacamole };
            table[2] = new int[] { 0, item.Chips, item.Queso, item.Guacamole };
            table[3] = new int[] { 0, item.Chips, item.Queso, item.Guacamole };
            table[4] = new int[] { 0, item.Chips, item.Queso, item.Guacamole };

        r.Welcome();
        Order o = new Order();
        o.order();

        
    }
}

What I'm trying to do is have the array hold the table number and also hold the amount of items ordered. I'd like to have it in it's own class. I've been having trouble with it resetting to default values (0) - that's why I want it in it's own class.

The code below works, but when you go to add to a tab all the array values for that table get reset to their default value.

Hope this is easier to understand. Thanks.

I just want it so the array doesn't revert back to the default values. When I call the method (where the array is) it goes back to the default values instead of keeping what was entered.

please pay little attention to Ramy! It seems he is just out to have fun!(apologies if i'm wrong).
What you should do is to include some comments to your code. Your code is quite lengthy. Put comments near where you are having the error. Let's take it from there.
NB: Indenting your code might also help.
