How far in advance do I typically need to get a reservation at One if by land?

    Hi Mike!

    If I were you I wouldn't go to OIBL, TIBS. Do a search on this board and you'll understand why. It has gone waaay downhill (from being nothing special to begin with).

    1. Rather than MAKE reservations at OIBL TIBS, I would HAVE reservations about eating there. Lots of better choices for that kinda bucks.

        well, to answer your question, rather than try to talk you out of going to the joint altogether, it depends on whether you're looking for a mid-week or a fri/sat reservation. mid-week doesn't really require all that much advance warning--certainly no more than 10 days or so, in my experience. weekend, figure 2-3 weeks. i've had mixed experiences there food-wise, but the place IS incredibly romantic in a very traditional way and the staff does make you feel pampered (likewise in a very traditional way). if it's a cool evening, make sure to have a drink by the fireplace. and if you're in a gut (and budget) busting mood, go for the tasting menu, which often includes a small-ish (but no doubt still unhealthy) beef wellington course.
