We had a window table on the Radiance in October. It was a great view until it got dark. Another neat thing is you're not surrounded by people. I never tried the e-mail thing - we always check out our table around 1:00pm on the first day and make changes with the dining room staff if we don't like the location, or the size of the table. There usually is a short line, but it doesn't take very long. I think you made a good choice.
