Yes Nick, it is that difficult. You are arguably dealing with the finest dining establishment in the country, and demand far exceeds capacity. They accept reservations exactly two months (to the day) in advance, beginning at 10:00 am and sell out almost instantly. The best bet of getting a reservation is speed dial on multiple phones, or Open Table, where two tables are available per night.
