French Laundry Reservation Tip

Renay | Aug 10, 2005 09:23 AM

I just secured a reservation to French Laundry on my very first try!!! I used I set my alarm clock for 11:55 PST (I am on the East Coast). I then went on-line and booked the reservation. I received my confirmation at 12:01 a.m. PST.
It also helps that I am dining on a weeknight. Plus, I am already a registered user of Also, read the tips on about booking a reservation with French Laundry. The tips give the exact times that OpenTable is allowed to reserve. Additionally, I zipped through the credit card information section by utilizing the cut and paste tool for my account number (all I had to do was paste in the account information). I completed the reservation in under 20 seconds.
I hope that this helps someone else!!!
