I'm no expert on France but I am an American who has been living in France for 6 months. My experience is that once you are served your food you are left alone by the servers. You are trusted to enjoy your meal in whatever way you want and for as long as you want. If you want something more, you get the attention of the server who is only too glad to help you. I think it's also useful to note that lunch is a big deal in France, usually on the order of 2 hours and with many stores closing during this time. Sounds like your "ritual!" :)
