It will be difficult anywhere to walk into a restaurant with a party of 12. A party of 6, maybe not so much. Do you have specific tours and restaurants in mind?

There are actually many restaurants within a mile of the Convention Center area (assuming that's where you're speaking of). Just use an app like Tripadvisor or Urbanspoon and search 'near me' and it will pop up with TONS of choices! (Mother's is a must, though!)

As far as tours, there are the hop-on-hop-off bus tours, as well as walking cemetery tours and ghost tours in the French Quarter. Might be a decent walk, but definitely do-able with able bodied people.

Years ago when I first went to Arnaud's they had a table for 12 in the same room where I was seated alone. I distinctly remember because the Maitre d' sat a party of 8 at it and the waitstaff was not happy - I as a single was near the station...I got dinner and a show! I would assume they can still seat 12 without a reservation with a little luck. I would think many could do 6 without a problem.

You can always cancel a reservation and reservations are free and a poster suggested an overrated underperforming place I would avoid..mothers. Check out the topic here using search.
