FW: Waiting on a Resy at Abe & Arthur's

New, 9 comments

Thank you for visiting the Eater Complaints Department, your unedited platform for voicing poor dining experiences, gross restaurant trends, and general underhandedness. Have grievances? Operators are standing by.

This week, a minor but all too common complaint about restaurants all over town. Question: How long past a set resy time is too long to wait?

I'm not much of a blogger, but I wanted to relay to you an experience I had at Abe and Arthur's. I had reservations for 9:30 last Sat night. The bar was jammed with a good looking crowd. After checking with the hostess (and fighting the crowds to get to her) about 5 times about my table, we waited until 10:30 with no table in sight. We simply asked for our coats and left. The hostess could not care less. A girl was waiting for a table since 8:30. I guess I'm a little too old for this scene.
