I'm impressed that the restaurant is so reliably filled that they don't need to maintain a wait-list.


Actually, the DO maintain a wait list.

They love to tell you stories of people hopping on a plane from, say, Berlin to rush over when they learn a table has opened up for them that night.

Have you no sense of propriety.

Yes I have no sense of propriety.

We went at the end of January and had the best diner experience period! No new news
The atmosphere, the chefs presenting the dishes and food was spot on.
It seems the Michelin guide does not think the same, they still have 2 stars in the new 2012 one. IMO the guide is stuck in late 90s....

Another year, no reservation.

Why do I even bother getting up in the middle of the night?

(On the other hand, I arrived at the office today to find something that would probably have forced me to cancel the reservation I was trying to make. THAT would have been heartbreaking.)

I can make a case for Michelin giving readers what they expect. A room that looks like that; service which looks like that; not what you'd expect in a three star restaurant.

That's it. I'm finished. I am NEVER getting up in the middle of the night to go on the fool's errand of trying to make a Noma reservation ever again.

I've had it.

I couldn't get a table at the London pop up in August either, which was a blessing in disguise as I want to leave the city for the whole of the Olympics.

I assume you at least didn't have to wake up at 3:45 AM to try.
