Does anybody have any experience on having a late reservation (nothing "prime time" was available) but coming much earlier and asking to be put on waiting list in lieu of our reservation? We currently have an 8:45 for Big Fire but would love to eat much earlier (say 6:00-7:00). What are the chances of showing up at 5:00, putting our name on the waiting list and getting seated within a couple of hours? After making the 8:45, I did call just in case the online reservation system didn't offer as much as calling....nope, it was the same. I also asked if cancellations are common but I didn't get a warm a fuzzy. I'm still checking every so often just in case something pops up.
