Who doesn’t like last-minute plans? Well, the restaurateurs and for all the right reasons! Those people in the food industry for whom cooking is their passion needs to deliver the best each time. Authentic and traditional restaurant owners are already juggling a lot of pressure and adding to those urgent or “on priority” food orders. 

We understand how important those “last minute” plans are for food lovers, but to cater to their senses, we need time to make some necessary preparations. Arriving at a restaurant without reservation with an expectation of excellent food can ruin your food experience as there are always some technical aspects involved that need to be taken care of at the last minute to enhance your dining experience in a restaurant.

To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove to be costly, The Bauernschmaus Restaurant has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when making a reservation at a restaurant.

1. Not reserving your seat in advance 
The most common mistake people commit is assuming they don’t need to make a reservation. When a restaurant knows how many customers to expect in a given evening, estimating the amount of preparation needed in services becomes easier. Knowing how many personnel they’ll need on hand and what variety of meals they will be able to offer. It makes management comparatively easier.

2. Not making the reservation when the restaurant answers your call
If you are calling the restaurant that you wish to visit, and if somebody answers your call, please book your seat in advance. If your plan is in place and you are looking forward to having a nice time, it’s better to book your visit in advance, as you don’t want to deal with a refusal from your restaurant to accommodate you later on.

3. Assuming that your restaurant will call you back
Please remember that most restaurants do not have a call-back system. Besides, they don’t even have the staff or time to go through all the messages. So, please don’t leave a message, as chances are they won’t get back to you. Instead, please speak to one of their staff and get your reservation well in advance.
