    I get the impression that the reservation system favors even numbers of people, to avoid empty seats at a table. Did you also try for six people at less busy times of year?

    I haven’t read of anyone getting a table for more than 4. Splitting the ADR is good advice.

    I’m not sure that is an issue. We usually book for 3 every ADR. It seems that this particular ADR doesn’t let you book for more than 4. I can’t recall anyone saying they were able to book for more than 4 without splitting the group. We will see if this is a glitch of some kind or if the tables will just be 2 and 4 tops.

    We were able to get a 6 & 4 for Feb break before 7am when reservations opened, but could only get before 5pm.

    When these first opened I had to book 2 tables for my party of 7. Then a couple hours later more reservations opened and I was able to get a table for 7.

    I was lucky and snagged a table for 5 at 520 on 2/24. Only time available that day for 5. I keep checking too hoping for a bit later.

    I was not able to get an ADR for 5 for the last week of March and I set an alert the morning they opened up when only the tables for 2 were available. I grabbed one for 2 and then was able to grab a table of 3 at the exact same time so at least we can all go! But still no availability for 5. We’re okay sitting separately but has anybody had luck having them combine your reservations at check-in when you have two ADRs at the exact same time? Or at least putting both groups at tables right next to each other?

    I got a table for two on 1/31. The new menu looks very good. I’m eager for reviews after it begins - it sounds like a ton of food, with a selection of apps and desserts.

    I just got a table for 3 in April, since I have room only, I was very surprised it was still available since I have to reserve one day at a time.

    We’ve never had a problem combining two reservations to sit together. Just show up a little early and explain your situation.

    If you have a room-only onsite reservation, you can make your whole trip's worth of ADRs at 180 days out from arrival day.

    Got an ADR for 5 at 4:20 on our 1st day. There are no ADRs during the 5-7pm time for our entire stay.

    Heads up. I think a lot of ADRs just dropped for Artist Point. I got a TP notification for an adr for 6 on 3/5 at 6:40. There were several other times available also. I checked other days and saw times available.

    Ditto this. My dates that had absolutely nothing for a party of 5 suddenly have pretty much whatever time I want. (2/28, 3/3, 3/5 were the ones I've been looking at as options).
