I did make a reservation before hand in order to be sure I ate at the time I needed to. However, after the pesky reservation, the rest of the experience was wonderful.

As I made reservations for 6 people, I was politely asked if this reservation was for a special occasion and mentioned it was for my father's 80th birthday to which the reservations lady simply remarked, "oh how nice".
