Canceling a Reservation

HillJ | Oct 19, 2006 07:30 PM

My of my pet peeves about dining out is canceling reservations at a restaurant without calling.

On those rare occasions when I may need to cancel a dinner reservation, I call the restaurant to formally cancel and apolgize. Is it me or shouldn't that always be the appropriate thing to do.

Recently, we waited close to 30 for a table only to be told that they had been holding one for a called-in rez and they appeared to be a no show...that 'our' table was now ready..

What's your take?
