They did take us on a Saturday without reservations after a debate with the chef for 10 minutes. Oddly enough we were the only customers there at 5:30. By the time we left they were still only half full, so I doubt we put them out any. My daughter's vegan dish (the only one offered) was inedible. My beautiful cut of filet ordered medium was served brown all the way thru, thus leaving it dried out. I made the server aware, and never heard anything more about it, so I ate it as it was. I don't like to complain as I'm not very picky, but when I pay $300 including tip for dinner for 6, I have higher expectations.
