We got our reservations and time we wanted with no problems at all. Think people just exagerate the fact that it is busy.

You're kidding, right? There are multiple threads about people having difficulty getting ADRs at BOG. Part of the problem is not that the place is filled up, there's also issues when ADRs are held back for certain dates with no explanation by the fabulous people in charge of those types of things...

I was able to get an AR at the 180 +10 mark for us in late Sept....but, to be fair, I should say I also did it at 7am or so, so I got a jump on many people that day. I did mine online with no trouble.

Today was our 180+10 and I was able to get BOG for my preferred night/time - 10/13 at 7pm. Get up early to book your ADRs, it's worth it!

Got a Walk In!!!

Tried and tried and couldn't get a Ressie, but we actually were there on Thursday 4/4 and got a walk in. It was raining and I took a chance at around 9 and they had space for 2!

It was wonderful!

I had the IPO do it. They have access about 30 minutes before everybody else, I think. I had the e-mail by 7:30 AM my time with all my ADR confirmation numbers on my 180 day mark.

Where are you getting this information from? About ADRS being held on certain dates?

BOG is the hottest ticket in town. Has been since ADRs opened for it last Aug. Almost every family making ADRs is trying to get a meal there. Why the surprise that some folks are having a tough time? It's solely a matter of supply and demand. One heck of a lot of demand (which fluctuates according to crowd levels) and a fixed supply (number of tables). Having just scanned over all 8 pages of this thread, it looks like the vast majority of PPs have been able to get a table sometime during their trip.

I tried this morning, but didn't have the info about going to the "old" (GB) dining reservations site, so I was stuck on the "new" site that kept having error messages.

I finally found the info (on here, of course) and tried the old site at around 7:20am EST, and by then I got ZILCH. It was our 180+10 date, but we were looking for our first full night, 10/11/13, so that means other +10ers and a 9 day jump start on me! I was able to score a 4:55 - the only one offered - for our second to last night, 10/18, but it meant lots of reshuffling.

I'm going to keep trying just in case something opens up, but we can't really wait until the day of and hope for a walk-up or cancellation because we will have already changed our schedule. *sigh*
