    Hi,

    "To reserve" means to keep something for someone.

    Examples:

    A:Good afternoon. I would like a table for ten at your cafe this evening.

    B: Sure, sir. I will reserve a big table for you for your booking.

    " To book" means to engage something beforehand.

    A: Good morning. I would like to book a table for ten for this evening.

    B: May I know what time that would be, sir?( The waiter wants to know what time in the evening A will need that table.)

    A says he would like TO BOOK a table for ten people. ( He wants B to

    reserve( keep) a table for ten people for him)

    Hope it helps.

    Bye
