    They are walkups only except from 12-1pm they allow reservations. That's why you probably can't get a reservation. You will have no problem walking up since they are considered a walkup only restauraunt now minus that hour for lunch. You will likely have a wait if it's peak lunch time or dinner time though. ;)

    According to this site, the Plaza switched from all day reservation availability to reservations only between 11 am and 12 pm in June 2016. Guests holding confirmed reservations prior to the switch were accommodated (as my family was in September and October last fall.)

    Recently I have only been able to find reservations in the 11 am hour. Yours is the first I have heard of past noon since the change. Can you post a screenshot?

    Thanks for the info:) it makes sense now that the only reservation i could ever see was 11:05, i thought i had heard something about them going to walk ups only but then i convinced myself i had imagined it!

    We did a walk up on a whim I think around 1pm-ish in March and were seated within 5 minutes. I don't know if the stars just aligned and it worked out for us, but it's worth a try.

    okay dont know whats going on but I tried to walk up today and they told me reservations only, to come back at 4pm, and this was between 230-3:00. So have they changed this yet again??

    Very popular lunch spot at the MK for sure and great food. Definitely possibly for a walk up. Enjoy.

    Best place in my opinion to eat lunch although you are correct it is difficult to get in some days. I have been there where there are a lot of people standing outside waiting to get in. I don't think you will have difficulty, but you may have to be a little flexible with your times. Good Luck and Enjoy.
