French Laundry reservations

sparkerly | Feb 24, 201309:24 PM     10

Hello! I'm not too much of an expert and I assumed you guys would probably be the people to ask!

So my birthday is on March 14...and I'm on the waitlist and everything for that day at TFL. Been trying since a month ago. However, I've been checking opentable also just in case....what is the probability that I will be able to get a table for 3 or 4 if someone cancels?

I already have a reservation at Bardessono Hotel and a driver so I can do wine tasting. It's going to be my 21st birthday so my mom only wants it on March 14, but I think it's giving us more anxiety and stress than necessary because we're still unsure whether we'll get the reservations or not =(

So basically, my main question is what is the probability that I will be able to get a table for 3 or 4 if someone cancels?
Do people usually cancel 3 days prior?
