I wanted to comment on my experience with Nate Dre.
I have spoken to many friends and family who have either not been able to obtain a reservation at The French Laundry or who have raved about the experience.
My wife and I are visiting Napa Valley to celebrate our anniversary.
I tried calling from the East Coast several days, tried Open Table at 3:00am, and was only able to make the wait list one day.
I emailed Nate with the dates that we will be in Napa and he was successful in obtaining us a reservation. I was a little skeptical, but we received an email from The French Laundry confirming our reservation.
We couldn't be happier that we obtained a reservation and Nate made it very easy to work with him.
I highly recommend that you email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
