If one of my guests is unable to attend, can I invite someone else at the last minute?

Yes, please take advantage of your full reservation. If you have confirmed the number of guests in your party, and have not confirmed the name, the reservation will be listed as “Guest of [Your Name].”  You may instruct your guests to inform the Hostess that they are a late addition or a change from another listed guest.   Changes to the final guest list will stop being made the day prior to the event.

No.  Once someone in your party has confirmed your table number with the Hostess, you may share that among your guests. If you have more than 10 in your party, or if you are a mixed group, then it is recommended everyone check in to confirm each person has the correct table location.
