    Not fussed. I usually only go out to eat with Night Fury and if anything I actually kinda feel uncomfortable if the two of us are taking up an entire booth. But I will sit wherever they put me.

    Booths are preferable, but like Pheesh, if there's just me and Mr. Carny, taking a booth does make us a tad conspicuous. A table is fine, but if given the choice I'd go for a booth.

    Don't really care. As long as I can sit and enjoy my meal.

    As long as it's quiet, I don't feel guilty taking up an entire booth between two of us.

    The 'tables for two' at some restaurants can be a little too close. Almost like you're having dinner with the couple on the table next to you as well.

    If it's a crowded restuaraunt then a booth, I dont like having to scooch my seat in whenever someone walks behind me
    If there's plenty of room then a table is better so people don't have to shift to let people in/out
    Kefka's coming, look intimidating!
    Have a nice day!!

    (George is at the coffee shop with his parents)
    GEORGE: So, uh, Mom, Dad, I was hoping that you could help me to remember my childhood a little clearly..
    ESTELLE: I feel a draft. (Grabs the bread basket and her drink) Let's change tables.
    FRANK: Get outta here! We have a booth.
    ESTELLE: Frank, I'm cold!
    FRANK: Order a hot dish.
    ESTELLE: Why can't we sit over there? (Points to a table)
    FRANK: (Yelling) That's not a booth!
    ESTELLE: (Trying to match Frank's loudness) So, who says we have to sit in a booth?!
    FRANK: (Loud shouting) I didn't take the subway all the way to New York to sit at a table like that! (Gestures to the table)
    ESTELLE: (Nagging yell) Well, I didn't take the subway to be in a drafty restaurant!
    (A moment passes)
    GEORGE: (Pleading for them to stop) Mom.. dad.

    Booths usually have better seats and more room so obviously booths.

    I don't even care about looking conspicuous. Always booth!

    Yeah, this as well. This is why Wagamama really annoys me. I'm eating on a bench. I'm next to someone else. What is this, a school cafeteria? Gimme some privacy!

    I usually don't care because of you state a preference you might get stuck in a section with a server who's busy.
