Should I reserve for 14?  Should we find someplace else?
Is there somewhere else that can be agreed on?

I can't believe you are taking this from them standing up. I would expect you to have the GM on the phone by now and work something out with them even "for a discount" if they don't want to have bad publicity ;D

I already picked my fight for the day and won (got a free change for party of 7 with Airtran after 2 calls)
Any more and I'll start graying...gotta know when to pick your battles!

Already answered. I'm with DealGuy on this one.

Club House?
It's fine for drinks beforehand, but it's quite noisy.  Then again, Le Marais can be noisy too.
I'm inclined to just say we're a group of 14 and go from there.  I think we'll find a way to get them to take all of our cards, but if not we'll deal with it.
Unless someone else has other restaurant ideas.

If they insist on only 4 cards, don't you think some people in our group might get violent (wanting to have their card swiped)? :P

sounds good.
and remember, like AsherO said, since we weren't a group of 15 we never knew about the 4 card limit :)

I'll have my virtual card machine on me. 1.99% swipes for all.
Honestly, I wonder how they can really enforce just 4 cards.

Don't you have a very small credit limit on your one card?

Yup, Amex Plats with $20 credit line :D We can even program one to actually deny anything over $20.

Well, after buying $1000 at the us mint, there is no money left, even for those that have more than a $20 limit.

I emailed to make a res for just 14 and they responded:

You still need to fill a reservation form.  We require that form for any large groups.   And only 4 cards can be accepted to pay for that meal.
