The answer to your question is as follows:

A Nikah is valid with a proposal and an acceptance of marriage in the presence of at least two Muslim, adult, sane witnesses. Without it the nikah will not take place. Niyyah, Khutbah, and documentation are not conditions for the validity of a Nikah.
From your question, it seems that the man gave to the manager only information that both of you are married, but have not actually married yet according to Shariah. The manager and waiter watched and listened that answer from man so they can not be consider as witnesses of Nikah. Hence, it is not permissible for you to stay as a wife of the man, you should stop all communication and relations immediately till you get marriage according to Shariah and now repent to Allah for your past doing. (And Allah knows best)
