Pet Peeve

What is it with restaurants that won't take reservations on a Saturday night at 8pm? I just phoned Zaytinya to book a table for four at that time and was told that they don't take reservations for after 6:30pm. Do they really think that I want to show up at a restaurant with my 70+ year old mother and her 80 year old friend to wait in line? Absolutely not! I can see a chain restaurant like the Great American Restaurants doing this, since they get a different type of customer, but for a big-name place in town to do this just makes my head spin.... Any thoughts?
