When you're inquiring about the availability of a table, would it be okay to say "¿Tiene una mesa para tres?" ? Is there a more polite way to ask this?

It is perfectly okay and the natural thing to say. The only way you could make it more polite (but perhaps a bit affected) is "¿Tendría una mesa para tres?", where tendría is the conditional form of tiene (think "Would you have" vs "Do you have").

Oddly enough, here in Spain we tend to leave out "una" in this particular case when speaking colloquially, even though it is bad grammar...
