I figured I would try calling and ask if they are even taking reservations that day or if they are closed. She said they were taking reservations but everything is booked. It didn't seem like she brought up the times people reserved though.

Also, someone said much earlier in the morning that it was not available for them also. I just think they have it blocked off or not loaded until someone shows they were actually able to get one..

They had nothing for that date at 6:00AM, which is why I think that the place is booked for a private event or they didn't open up that date for some other reason

You might want to retry later as they may be holding back some reservation times.

Depends on how many courses you get, but my experience in the past is that CG tends to be on the slow side of things. I enjoy a nice casual pacing to dinner, but even with great company and conversation (and well-behaved/ ipad using kids) I have found myself looking at the watch and wondering what takes so long on the entrees. (we've gone 4 times). You don't always sit down right at your ressie time also, so sometimes checking in a little prior to your time helps.

Again, not painfully so on the time to complete the meal, but by no means are they fast there IMHO.

2 hours should be/can be fine, but probably not if you are getting full boat of apps/entree/dessert. Maybe go apps/entree and then check the clock before deciding on dessert. Grab it in the park so that you aren't rushed maybe?

Lacquered belly? Blistered tomato? At least nothing had foam on it. Wait! I spoke too soon, the beef had Parmesan foam!
They say it's blistered so they can charge $17 for it

re-reading your post, my first response was to answer whether you can get through your meal in under 2 hours,....

this response is to now what I think you meant, which is whether 2 hours is too much gap to bridge you to 9:30? (Christmas fireworks time?) If that is your question, then to that, I would say 2 hours is a very reasonable meal time to expect at CG if you are doing multiple courses. the meal will/can definitely take you two hours. so if your intent was to watch fireworks from the observation deck after dinner then you should be A-OK without intentionally dragging out your meal to get to that point.

Cool

Thank you guys so much!!!! We are going in January and thanks to the advice here I snagged one for 7:15pm on 1/13 and 1/14.

I wanted us to be able to watch wishes atop the Contemporary. I read somewhere its at 8pm on those nights in January.

So I'm reading that dinner takes 2 hours at CFG? I'm hoping if we get there at 6:40pm we can get in and at least have dinner eaten by 8pm. Anyone got any tips there?
