Reservations mean nothing today. You call or go on line and set your day and time but it seems that many establishments are indifferent to you, your time or your celebration. You have to stand in line behind patrons who did not set their reservations and are awarded a table...your table. What happened to the time where a man would call and set a time and date for his wfe for a romantic evening and be greeted with; "Welcome Mr. Smith, your table is waiting. You and your wife look fabulous. May we serve you drinks at the bar or at your table? May I take your coat Mr. Smith?"
