Barclay Prime and Opentable
I was surprised that I was unable to get a reservation on Opentable at Barclay Prime between 6-8 p.m. on a weekday. I was going to make a reservation elsewhere, but decided to call the restaurant. By phone, I had no problem getting a 6:30 p.m. slot. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago at Per se in NYC (which doesn't seem to put any reservations online).
Any idea why Barclay Prime doesn't list some reservations on Opentable? More important, how am I to know when a restaurant is really booked? It seems as if I can't rely on Opentable anymore.
