    2/1 I made the reservation for 7pm via open table and requested 2 burners due to our party was for 4. We arrived at 6:45pm checked in and I confirmed that we will get a table with 2 burners. Host replied NO, and there are no 2 burners available. According, to the Host they do not honor any request regarding COMMENTS VIA OPEN TABLE RESERVATION. YOU HAVE TO CALL IF YOU WANT 2 BURNERS…..
