Terms & Conditions
Haute Dolci/Resdiary provides you (“you” or “User(s)” as the context may be) with the ability to make reservations at participating restaurants by directly synchronising with the Resdiary’s Reservation System. Once a booking has been confirmed, Haute Dolci® will issue you with an instant Email & Booking Confirmation Number to confirm the Booking. By using Haute Dolci®, you agree to receive confirmation communications through Haute Dolci® related to the booking.
All customers making reservations must present a Dolci key at the time of arrival.
For most Haute Dolci® Bookings, Haute Dolci® does not charge you a Booking Fee. You simply pay the restaurant for your meal after you have dined in the restaurant.
For selected bookings marked as “Haute Dolci® Payments”, restaurants may require a Credit Card prepayment or guarantee in order to secure a booking. The terms of Haute Dolci® Payments will be as follows:
All payments are between you and the restaurant directly and processed through Stripe. Haute Dolci® or any of its Affiliated Partners are not parties to the transaction.
For bookings that require a Credit Card Prepayment, you will be required to make an upfront payment of a nominated amount (Prepaid Amount) in order to complete the booking. The Prepaid Amount (less any Credit Card Surcharges) will be deducted from your total bill when you dine at the restaurant and you will need to pay any excess over the Prepaid amount or have any unused amount refunded to you directly by the restaurant. All Prepaid Amounts are strictly non-refundable and non-transferable, any changes, cancellations, no-shows and late arrivals are solely at the discretion of The Restaurant.
For bookings that require a Credit Card Guarantee, you will be required to provide a guarantee of a fixed amount per person (Guaranteed Amount). There will be no charge to you unless you breach the “Cancellations”, “No Shows”, “Changes” or “Late Arrivals” conditions mentioned in clauses 5 to 8 below, should these conditions be breached the restaurant reserves the right to charge the provided credit card with the Guaranteed Amount.
Booking Confirmation Number:
You will receive a Booking Confirmation Number once your booking has been confirmed and accepted by the restaurant. Please ensure to use this number in all communications with Haute Dolci® or the Restaurant.
To make changes to the date, time or number of diners, please contact the restaurant directly at-least 2 hours in advance of your reserved meal time and quote the Booking Confirmation Number. Changes will be subject to the restaurant’s availability. Where the number of diners for a “Haute Dolci® Payments” booking is reduced, the restaurant reserves the right to apply the Guaranteed amount should the dining spend not exceed the guaranteed amount.
Conditions for cancellations of bookings made via “Haute Dolci® Payments”:
For bookings that require a Credit Card Prepayment, any refunds or cancellations are solely at the discretion of the Restaurant. For bookings that require a Credit Card Guarantee, if you wish to cancel your reservation please contact the restaurant directly at-least 24 hours in advance of the reserved meal time. Should this condition be breached the restaurant reserves the right to charge the provided credit card with the Guaranteed Amount.
Conditions for cancellations excluding bookings made via “Haute Dolci® Payments”:
If you wish to cancel your reservation, please contact the restaurant directly as soon as possible as different restaurants have different rules about cancellation. For Group Bookings of six (6) or more, please ensure to provide at-least 48 hour’s notice of any planned cancellations. The restaurant's contact details can be found in your confirmation email.
The restaurant and/or Haute Dolci® reserve the right to cancel your booking directly within 24 hours of the booking being made.
Failure to attend the restaurant at the reserved time without prior notification to the restaurant will result in you being identified as a "no-show." As a result the restaurant may choose to restrict, suspend or cancel your future bookings with them.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes in advance of the reserved meal time. The restaurant reserves the right to cancel your booking and allocate your table to other guests if you have not arrived within 10 minutes of the reserved meal time (ie. 10 minutes late.)
The restaurant reserves the right to require you to vacate your table after a fair period of time.
If you make a booking through “Haute Dolci® Payments”, but the restaurant loses, misplaces or simply cannot accommodate the booking through direct fault of its own, then the restaurant agrees to provide you with a complimentary meal or a refund to the value of the Prepaid or Guaranteed Amount. Should the Restaurant fail to honour this obligation, Haute Dolci® or any of its partners will not be liable to you for the Prepaid or Guaranteed Amount.
The above only applies in instances when the booking cannot be honoured. This does not include situations when the restaurant does not have record of your booking but is still able to accommodate you. Requests should be put in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
