And yes, the reason is that waiter is the subject.

comment “Hin” und “her”: Von wessen Standpunkt?
Yes, it's plausible somehow that's why many use it. If you say "herab", no one will probably think it's wrong and it won't sound odd to anyone. But it's like saying "Ich gehe dahin". You can't replace that by "Ich gehe daher." (You can but it means something different.) In English, you would say "The waiter was leaning towards the guest." But you can't replace "towards" here with something like "fromwards". In English it's more obvious. Maybe it helps to remember that "hin" points in a direction whereas "her" refers to a source or an origin.
