Be Our Guest--availability has improved a lot!!

I was just poking around on the dining reservation site and using dates end of August, first week of Sept. I had each and every dinner date come up with availability. Seems like it's much easier to get a table now.

We are going in October and the window hasn't opened yet, but I'm not so concerned anymore. It's a fabulous place and I was looking forward to returning.

Are you having the same experience??

I was able to find some for a friend today. We were struggling to find any spots in the last weeks. We were even able to get a table for 8!!

The novelty will wear off eventually, especially for lunch.

I've been trying for weeks to get something the last week of August and no luck so far! I'll keep trying but I guess I'll have to accept we might not get to eat here. Maybe by then lunch will be less popular as I'm just not willing to stand in line for ages to eat there. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Not sure about the lunch (havent tried it yet), but I think its going to be a pretty tough dinner ADR for quite some time---

The dinner is really magical to many people-- I guess you can make the CRT Bfast comparison, which was a pretty tough ADR to secure for a long time---

Remember that BOG does not take reservations for lunch! It's counter service up until their dinner start time. We are going in July and just hope to get in for lunch because my CM said when I called to make an ADR that they were booked until August for dinner.

Thank you for giving me hope for our trip during the next week - I'm looking for 3/25 or 3/28!

I agree. Just as Le Cellier, CRT, PSB and a few others are still hard to get.

CM says no BOG for August

I've been trying to get a better end of August ADR for BOG and was told yesterday that they overbooked in August and won't be releasing any cancelations with the hopes that they will catch up to the over-booked numbers.

I suppose it never hurts to keep trying tho.
