Wait Listed at The French Laundry...what are the chances of getting in?

We are wait listed for our first choice night. Will be calling again tomorrow and Friday to see if we can get in on our second and third night choices.

Has anyone else been wait listed and gotten in? If so, how close to your reservation did you find out?

    Friends found out the day before.

    Making a lot of extra calls is probably not a good use of your time.

      Thanks Windy. I didn't mean we would be calling to check on our wait listed reservation, I meant we would be trying to get a confirmed reservation for another night during our stay. Does that make sense?
