Show up for your reservation
Gone are the days where we can rock up to a restaurant and expect to be seated in minutes. Due to safe distancing measures and restricted capacity, many places fill up fast so your best bet is to make a reservation. Unfortunately, restaurants have reported that the rate of no-shows and late cancellations have risen during Phase 2 – possibly because people are making multiple bookings in order to see what ends up suiting their whims and fancies of the day.
Don't be that person. Here's why:
"Real estate in a restaurant is highly critical as it decides if small venues like us remain in business or not," shares Alvin Gho, the co-owner of Wine RVLT. "No-shows don't allow us to plan efficiently and effectively. This behaviour not only creates a loss of income for the operators, but it also denies other customers of an opportunity to eat and drink."
