The Balcony is unlocked at Restaurant level 8.
The Balcony's level is the same as the Restaurant's level.
The higher the Balcony level, the more the VIPs order and the better the rewards.
You have 5 free chances to receive VIP guests a day.
Chances refresh at midnight UTC and any unused chances do not rollover.
5 extra chances can be purchased per day for 50 magic crystals.
The VIP customer who appears is random.
Some Food Souls have a Balcony skill which increases the chance for a particular VIP to appear.
Assigning a Food Soul as Balcony server does not interfere with its other jobs, and doesn't consume Freshness.
Completing a VIP order nets a reward of Gold, Fame, Seasoning, etc.
There's also a chance to receive Mystery Chests, which give you 500 Cooking Power.
Fame obtained from the Balcony is included in the calculation for the Restaurant Fame Leaderboard.
Certain Food Souls can increase the chances of certain customers appearing when chosen as servers. You need to level up this skill to increase the chances even more. (Default rate: 16%; +16% per skill level).
When you receive a VIP guest, you'll randomly obtain a Food Soul Anecdote. Different VIPs know different Anecdotes. Collect all of a VIP's anecdotes to obtain that VIP's Souvenir.
