I recently attempted to go out to dinner at an up-scale casual restaurant with some friends. We were shopping and had no reservation, and went in at 6pm. The place was quite empty, and when we asked for a table, the hostess told us they had a very large reservation coming in at 7:30, and so if we chose to stay, they would want our table cleared by then. Three of us were fine with this, as we have eaten there before and 1 1/2 hours is plenty. The fourth was adamant we find someplace else, and informed the hostess she was extremely rude. Thoughts?
FYI, we went to the not-quite-as-good spot next door, and were out of there at 7:20
