Smile Victoria & Albert's booking question

I'm hoping to book the chef's table at V&A for our 25th anniversary trip next year. When I called the V&A reservation line, they said you can book online starting at 6am for the dining rooms, but could only book the chef's table by calling the V&A line starting at 9am. But it looks from some posts here that some people have booked the chef's table online at 6am...is that possible? Just want to be ready to try for the ressie as soon as it opens...thanks!

Either something has changed or that person was unaware that you can indeed book Chef’s Table online. We’ve been given similarly mistaken info a time or two when calling the direct line.

All I can say is getting it! Of the four times we’ve tried, we’ve gotten it only once which apparently was beginner’s luck.

If you don’t, you can call at 9:00 and ask to be put on the wait list for it on the unlikely chance a party cancels since there’s only one booking per evening a few nights each week.

The problem, I suspect, is that others with stays starting a few days ahead of yours manage to grab it before you have a chance at all.

It is a marvelous experience. Certainly hope we can get it again sometime.

Thanks!! We're going to try for the end of our trip, so hopefully fewer people will have the chance to try ahead of us...crossing fingers!
