At most places, pricing varies by what you order, especially in the mid to high price ranges (~$30-$100 per person). Think of the pricing as a rough grouping - prices with the same number of dollar signs are in the same ballpark. Depending on the order, the price could go up or down by a group. You’re unlikely to eat so much or so little that a restaurant jumps more than 1 dollar sign in either direction.
