Hey all, I have a gift certificate for Blue Hill at Stone Barns but can’t for the life of me get a reservation. I tried the other night at midnight EST for a Saturday two months in advance (right as it supposedly should be added to the calendar) and literally no tables showed up.
What am I doing wrong? Has anybody reserved through a credit card concierge or anything like that?
She handles all my reservations.
Interesting? And she’s effective even at these obnoxious, time-sensitive places?
Yes, even at places that do not take Amex or any credit cards (like Luger).
Never has let me down. And I make sure she’s appreciated come the holidays.
Amex concierge is truly one of the best/easiest way to get a diffcult reservation
Woah, alright it sounds like it’s definitely the way to go. Thanks for the advice!
I got mine through OpenTable. Mind you, it was for January in the dead of winter – maybe that made it a bit easier at the time. Having said that, one of the best meals ever - and what they did with a lot of root vegetable was nothing short of amazing.
I have been using the Chase Sapphire concierge this past year with pretty good results so far.
Woah didn’t even know Chase Sapphire had a concierge. Will have to give them a call. As for the meal, I’m quite excited! If I ever get in
I should have been more precise! I have been using the Visa Signature Concerirge services:
AMEX Concierge came through! We will be dining there in September. Thanks for the recommendation y’all! I’m quite excited.
