[QUOTE=WishUponAStar;988674]Well, we’ve had mixed results with this. Because Daniel’s family can be so unpredictable we usually have to deal with this on almost every trip. :laugh: I’ll be honest and say that I’ve had MORE luck the times when we found out last minute & DIDN’T call.
When I’ve tried to call and change the party size I’ve been told numerous times that it becomes a different ADR all together & that there was nothing available for that party size. Although, in the event that part of his family decides a couple hours before, “Ehh, sorry, I think we’re doing this or that”, etc. we’ve just arrived at the podium of the restaurant, explained really nicely what has happened, and we’ve never had a problem.
It also depends on the party size, if the ADR was for 3 adults and you are just adding one adult that table would have been sat at a 4 seater anyway so it’s not as big of a deal, then they don’t have to find you a larger accomodation. I wouldn’t think the baby would big a problem anywhere since she’s not sitting in a full adult seat.
Thank you. This makes me feel so much better. I just don’t want to get stuck with no where to eat and have to separate from my party to find food!
DD definitely won’t take up a seat and it’s entirely possible she won’t even sit in a high chair (I wear her in slings and wraps most of the time). There are currently 3 adults in their party and we need it to be 4 adults and 1 baby. I wondered if 4 wouldn’t be any different than 3 since the tables typically seat 4 anyway.
