This has happened three times now. Using a couple of different websites, I've attempted to make dinner reservations in Bordeaux. Seems to work, but then I'm turned down. Is this because I'm a single diner aiming for a table at a high-end place? If so, should I make a res for two and then show up as a single, stating that the second person was my husband who died recently? (True, BTW.) I'm finding this very frustrating. Are reservations in France generally difficult for singles?
