Hi there has anyone else been told that they cannot request where they sit when they made their resvervation? Or is it just me..
Yes. One example is Blue Hill, which has a dining area out back which I always try to avoid. Restaurants with striking views from certain tables, or with outside dining areas, will sometimes accept requests for specific seating; some will not; some will just say that they'll make a note but won't guarantee it.
There is no harm asking.
sorry..it may have been that I was being naive, its just that there have been a few threads and some articles/reviews that differentiate between the rooms and suggest which ones to ask for, so I thought it was an option...
