A restaurant reservation book is designed for taking and recording reservations for diners. The book can be kept at the hostess stand. When diners arrive, the hostess can easily look up their reservation so they can be seated as soon as possible. While any old binder and notebook can be used to make and look up reservations, these restaurant reservation books are specifically designed for the task. They are much more attractive than a standard binder or notebook, and come with a vinyl or leather exterior that is smooth and visually appealing. The book can be kept at the host's stand so that the hostess will be ready when customers arrive for their reservations.
These restaurant reservation books can also be used to keep track of customers who are waiting. When the customer arrives, the server or hostess can enter them into the book as if they have a reservation. This can help keep track of waiting guests at busy restaurants. The book can also be used to keep track of customers that call ahead to be put on the wait list at restaurants where reservations are not allowed.
