How Restaurants Can Deal With No-Show Diners

Wylie Dufresne:

I’m constantly telling my friends, “did you cancel that reservation?” Because it’s just wrong not to cancel. It’s okay that you can’t make it. I can live with that. I have two kids, I have a wife, I have two businesses, I understand. Life happens. But in this day and age to tell me that you couldn’t get to the phone and tell me you’re sorry you can’t make it? I call foul.

Interesting behind-the-scenes look at what happens when you don’t show up for your dinner reservation. If you take nothing else away from this, remember to cancel your reservations if you’re not going to make it.
