Single Diner Brush-Off at Galatoire's!

I am in New Orleans for a few days. Ate a fantastic dinner at Dick and Jenny's last night (steak tip salad and duck two ways) and wanted to try for Galatoire's tonight. Called and asked for a reservation for a party of one upstairs in the bar area -- no dining in the bar, I was told. I asked for a reservation in the upstairs dining room. No reservations available for a party of one. "You can do a walk-in," the young woman informed me. I asked again if I could reserve a table for myself upstairs. "I don't think nobody wants to sit at a table by theyselves." was the answer. I thanked her and rang off. What gives? This is a first for me, in New Orleans or anywhere else for that matter. Did I do something wrong?
