Would you pay to make a reservation at a hot new restaurant?
Depends on if the word of mouth is positive and the price. And someone else wants to go
I would, but only if I could swing an 8:30 reservation at Dorsia.
Cmon dude get real. No ones getting a reservation at Dorcia
My wife and I went into NYC the Friday before Valentines. A friend of mine that lives in the city recommended a hot new restaurant. Couldn't get a reservation one week out. We found a nice place on our own and had a great time but I would have easily paid $20 to secure a reservation at at a place that would have really wowed her.
The last time I went to the "hot new restaurant in "it was Taco Bell in Dallas Oregon they had just opened up. The food was good the company divine. My granddaughter who was for at the time loudly announced that her "Mommy was having a baby boy unless it was a little girl with a penis". A memorable dining experience.
Depends if I go would go with a girl or by myself, and how expensive the reservation
I would wait until some people I know have gone there first and get their reactions. I don't trust advertisement or food critics evaluations.
Usually avoid all new restaurants hot or not for at least 6 months.
I wouldn't, but then I'm perfectly happy to just go to the local fish and chips or teriyaki place instead.
Homie don't go to hot new restaurants.
But I'd pay to make a hot new restaurant on a reservation.
How much and is he reservation and how much is the food?
The 4% who would pay, and that are making less than $50K better enjoy it. I suspect they will be eating dog food when they retire.
Maybe if I really wanted to go to it!
Not for a regular restaurant, but yes to prepay at a dinner theater.
I said no, but I have purchased tickets (like the article describes). Your just paying ahead of time with those places, which makes sense when you want a certain dining experience.
SOH is running out of poll ideas
I absolutely would! And I'd even pay a little extra to request a specific table! I have no problem paying a little extra, to get what I want, how I want it, and when I want it! I'm not a big shot. I just like actin' like one!😜
Not likely. Too many fees. Do they charge you for walking past the door, too?
Only on Fridays.
Well, on Fridays, sure. That's just assumed.
For a special occasion I would.
Where have you been?
I haven't seen Tom for awhile.
That means you'd have to go out
Hell no. I'm broke.
Not unless there were gladiator fights or some sort of mock swordfights
It would have to be seriously remarkable for me to consider that.
Pay the restaurant to eat there. and then pay for the food too?! Yeah, no thanks.
No. Food is food.
Nope. I'm sure they will more than make up for it in meal charges and underpaying their staff.
Nah I'm cheap af
Depends on the restaurant and whether or not it's a business meeting. There are restaurants you practically have to kill to get into and if I can impress a major client by getting a reservation it could be a net positive if I gain their business. Don't forget... meals and entertainment are a 50% deduction. ;)
No, as much as I love trying new places to eat, I'd just wait until you no longer needed to pay to reserve a table. And, if that policy never changed, I just wouldn't eat there. Too many other places to try!
I would never go to a restaurant that wants me to pay to have the privilege of getting a table in their restaurant.
Pay a restaurant and I don't get any food out of it? Haha, no
