    I just made an ADR for R&C in May. The res confirmation stated that my party may be seated at different tables. I tried for both a party of 3 and a party of 7 (not quite sure what family will be joining us) and the message was the same. Anyone know how true this is or why this is the case? Are there only tables of 2?

    That is only a general disclaimer. Even parties of one have gotten it, and I will worry about it when they figure out how to split up a party of one. It means that you should be aware the possibility exists they may have to seat a party at different tables for space issues. With the party of 7 there is a possibility they will have to use 2 tables, but it's not likely. Rose & Crown can push tables together.

    NOTES ON GROUP SEATING (PARTY BEING SPLIT UP):

    1) The disclaimer of being split up is on all ADR's.
    2) This is in case your party must be separated.
    3) Parties of up to six are seldom split.
    4) Parties of seven and above are more frequently split.
    5) It is a matter of
    . . . availability of tables which can be combined
    . . . combining tables so that aisles are not compromised or blocked
    . . . when you made the reservation, and how many others were made before you
    . . . the physical layout of the eatery
    . . . if they can fill the smaller two-or-three person tables (usually along walls or by pillars)
    6) They also must take into account the restaurant capacity
    . . . if there are a lot of ressies, the eatery can be sold out
    . . . combining tables reduces the number of seats available (end seats are lost)
    . . . example: push two 4-top tables together and you seat six instead of eight
    . . . thus, combining tables reduces capacity by 25%-50% per group
    . . . for very busy days, revenue is more important than group convenience of sitting together

    7) With the above being said
    . . . they do try to combine tables to accommodate the group
    . . . the vast majority of groups do not get split
    . . . but, be prepared if splitting does occur for your group

    I agree, its just a general note. We were their in September with a party of 4 and were seated at one table.

    Thanks for the info!! I looked through my other ADR confirmations and this is the only restaurant that highlights "your party may be seated at more than one table." I'm glad it is most likely untrue, but thought it was odd how they highlighted at the top of the res.

    I have received this same warning when I make a reservation for just myself. If they do split me up I hope the tables are adjoining, so I can keep myself together.

    If the tables are far apart it may upset the other diners, because my blood and guts will be spilled all over the restaurant, making a very disgusting mess.
