At Pied de Cochon, is it possible to walk in and get seats right away?
Or is it booked week/months in advance and you gotta get a reservation?
Yes it's possible for early or late dining; if you're alone, the probabily to have a place at the bar is not greater but still possible (more so at the "second" bar, the one not directly in front of the kitchen)
Me think you could get a reservation couple of weeks ahead of time, that't what I did last time I made a reservation there.
(see other recent post about reservation taken a few months before that did not went well).
We were there last night - it was still packed when we left at around 9:30. When we were waiting to be seated (about 30 minutes after our reservation time), everyone that walked in without a reservation was turned away. Maybe because it was a holiday weekend.
The restaurant is definitely not super posh but a fun, lively, enjoyable and definitely different place to visit.
