According to the New York Post a reservation at Rao's is one of the hardest reservations to get in New York. In fact, it's impossible.
This table for four belongs to a long time patron and only for Tuesday nights. She has "table rights" so... "dinnah on Tuesdays is a done deal." That's what makes Rao's, Rao's. It's like going home to eat. You're expected, respected, celebrated, a part of la famiglia and that is how it's been since 1896 when Rao's opened its doors.
Your winning bid gets you in. The rest is your dime but it's worth it for the best seat in New York for family and food - in that order.
Cost of meal, beverages and gratuity NOT INCLUDED. Valid on a Tuesday night only. Date must be mutually agreed upon by winning bidder and table owner, and must be redeemed within one (1) year. Experience cannot be resold or re-auctioned. Appropriate attire and conduct required. Please be aware that Rao's does not accept credit cards.
