I think it definitely depends on the restaurant.
Classic example is Yauatcha – 2hr Turnaround – Seems to offend no end of people, I eat there all the time and have never had to be asked to leave, or spent more than 2hrs eating.
If the menu is going to be an extravaganza of dishes and the restaurant still has a turnaround time then they need to go back to school and retake ‘customer satisfaction: the basics’
I don't ever mind getting told that they need the table back for late bookings or for more simple fayre, but if there is an element of style to the establishment, they need to rethink. A good meal should be memorable, a few good bottles of wine, good conversation and great food. I want to arrive at 8pm and leave at closing not have to squeeze it in between 6 and 9pm. More
