Dinner reservations

I’m in the northeast, and it’s becoming a pain in the a** to eat anywhere. Everywhere is full, have to book a reservation way ahead to get anything. Many restaraunts have started to hold a credit card on file for reservation and charge fees for cancelation, seems to have made it better. Is this how it was pretty pandemic, I can’t remember? Is it this annoying other parts of the country? I will also add, I only sit down at a restaraunt with my spouse maybe once or twice a month.
