Do I need to make them?
I never have and haven't had a problem, but I usually eat at the bar. It could be different at a table ...
Same thing. As long as you sit at the bar, you are usually good. The only time I was turned away was a little over a year ago at Sensei at Bellagio. No table available and the tiny bar was packed, so I went somewhere else
By your name I assume you are female. If you call for reservations and explain that you will be party of one and you would like something comfortable, I would think they might do better by you than if you just walked in
I've been having a hard time making a reservation for 1 at L'atelier. I tried to walk in over the summer and was turned away.
I'd say it depends on the restaurant. For truly high-end places like Picasso or L'Atelier, where there either isn't really any bar seating, or the bar seating is a somewhat coveted spot, then I'd make a reservation. For pretty much anywhere else, you're likely fine just walking in, although if you've got your heart set on a particular place it might be worth just calling to ask whether bar seating is usually readily available, and if not, making a reservation.
Thanks everyone! Yes to all of it! I really want to have dinner at Sage. And I will be sitting at the bar. However, I REALLY want to have dinner at Sage. So I think I will call them to make a reservation and let them know that I am good sitting at the bar but I just want to make sure I get in! Good idea people!!!
