Question about lift tickets for eiffel tower restaurant

My wife and I booked eiffel tower lift tickets for 10:30 PM before booking the restaurant at the first floor for 9 PM. Can we use the 10:30 PM ticket to get to the restaurant?

As I recall you do not have to have a lift ticket to go to the reastaurants. DOuble check as it;s been a few years sine we dined there

Thanks. When we booked the restaurant, it says we should arrive at least 30 mins in advance to get the lift tickets.

No lift ticket needed when you book at Restaurant. Fantastic meal-It has also been a few years for us also

You may want to do a search of the TripAdvisor forum for more recent information...but someone reported that there's a special ticket booth for those with reservations at Le 58 and you must purchase a lift ticket for 4.50 euros (which also gives you access to the second level).

Technically, you cannot use your 10:30 ticket, as it's valid only for the time reserved.

When you arrive, though, it's possible you may be able to work something out with an explanation, but I have no idea how strict they are about things.

The elevator is free to Jules Verne but you will need to purchase a ticket for 58. As djkbooks points out, there is a special line for those with restaurant reservations. They will have your name on a reservation list confirming your priority.

If you already have paid for tickets at a later time, I should think that it could be easily resolved, just explain the situation.
