We can use “Would like” for making offers and requests in a more polite way.
“Can” is used in a more casual way.

Making offers:

Can I help you?
Would you like to have a starter?
Would you like anything to drink?
Can I bring you anything else?

Making requests:

I’d like to have the set lunch.
I’d like to have a bowl of chicken soup, please.
I’d like to have a glass of Coke.
I’d like to have a grilled cheese sandwich.
I’d like to have the bill.
