All this talk of $10 cancellation fee got me thinking (not another topic on that though). Lets say I go to a place for dinner, however it's all booked, every table, at every time. Now imagine there are no-shows (as opposed to nicer people who take the time to cancel), I believe I would still be out of luck because the restaurant doesn't know that they're no-shows they could be running late, and since the place is booked they can't "squeeze" me in after ANY amount of time because there are reservations for a particular table a bit later in the evening which you would be taking (unless you eat super quick) or if the no-show ends up showing they have someone who had a reservation who now doesn't have a table and can't be squeezed in. Do I have this right? Or are they ever not filled to capacity for "just in case" scenarios like this? Or does a party lose their reservation if they're not there at the appropriate time (+5 minutes or whatever "leeway" that's given)?
