How does this policy of not seating a partial party make sense when
one has arrived to eat and drink and generally spend a serious
amount of money. Perhaps the 4th diner is slightly delayed - the
four have a reservation and are grown ups. (I'm not talking about
a young crowd at a crowded place where seating is first come basis.)
I believe it's disrespectful. (Happened at Otto at 6pm on a weekend
at a time when less than 10% of tables were filled.)
