We are definitely never getting a 7 or 7:30 reservation at Maude because they don't exist. This is the reservation schedule - you can see what times are offered for 2 or 4 tops online.
2 tops at 5:30, 5:45, 8, 8:15 and 9pm
4 tops at 6, 6:15, 8:45 and 9pm
So based on that I feel like I got the best possible seating for 4 people at Maude. Just made my day. 16th time is the charm.
