Ordering off the menu...

I've noticed that, when looking for restaurants to visit when coming to Dallas, people sometimes ask, "...and will they allow you to order off the menu?"

What is that about? Seems very pretentious but I might be completely misunderstanding the question. Is this a common practice at high end restaurants, if one is a high-roller willing to throw down a pile of cash?

To me it says, "I know what I want and it's better than what you are offering."
