What can go wrong when you make a reservation for lunch or dinner? Actually, a lot can. Many times, people aren’t aware of a particular restaurant- their cuisines, seating, timings, etc. There are also situations where the customer or staff are half aware of each other’s needs, which ends up in a messy state for one side or the other.
So, what should you do to make restaurant reservations correctly?
Here are a few tips.
Always plan in advance. Especially during festivals, holidays or special occasions, you need to make sure that you get the table at the restaurant of your choice. Do your research and select the place carefully before proceeding to make a call.
Call a day before for confirmation. This saves you from last-minute confusion and you can go through every detail carefully. It also ensures that there is no mess-up in your plan and you can rest easy before a nice experience.
Show up a little early or call if you’re running late. When you make a reservation for lunch or dinner, most restaurants allow a short time window. They will acknowledge your timings by a few minutes to half an hour in case you arrive early or late, but not more than that.
