Every time we make a reservation, we are asked *is this for a special occasion?*. Some times we say *yes, it is our anniversary* or *yes, it is our son's 16th birthday*.
Once we arrive at the restaurant, and these are high end restaurants, no one has ever acknowledgement the special occasion.
I'm wondering if any of you had any acknowledgments? Also, wondering if anyone knows why the person taking the reservation askes when there is no intent to acknowledge it?
