The French Laundry: Party of 6?

Bocuse NOLA Sep 19, 2008 04:45 PM

Tomorrow I begin my quest for a reservation at TFL. From my research, all I have seen is that tables of 2 or 4 are available. Has anyone dined there with a party of 6 or know if TFL seats tables of 6? I know that the private dining room can accomodate a party of 8 or 10 - and I have another couple who would be more than happy to dine with my group - but that would seem to limit my chances of scoring a reservation.

Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Our experience was that it was easier to get a reservation in the private dining room so I'd explore that route.

      I've been with 6 but I didn't get the reservation. I think you're right that 2-4 is easier, but I think 6 is easier then the private room. I think there's 3 tables available for 6.

        I appreciate the help. everyone. I managed to score a table for 6 (and actually had a choice of two times). Thanks again for the info.

          I was there in August and there was a table of 6 in the middle of the lower dining area across from us.
