How far in advance for reservations for popular restuarants?

DebitNM | Oct 22, 2010 07:37 AM

We are in the planning stages of our annual winter visit to San Francisco. I know that many popular restaurants only open reservations 1 month in advance [i.e. Chez Panisse]. Is there any place where there might be a cumulative listing of these kinds of info?

I was looking to make a reservation at Frances, and tried to make one for January via Opentable. It came back saying "Your requested date exceeds the maximum advance reservation limit for Frances. " So I figures it might be 30 days or a month, and I play with some dates. I can get table on Dec 14, but not later in Dec.

I could keep playing around with dates to see how far out I can book, but if I have to do that with every restaurant, it will take a while.

So, is there a definitive list of this sort of thing?
