Undecided questions
I have an English to German question.

Let's say I show up to a restaurant a few minutes before I think they open, and I ask the owner (someone I already know) "Are you guys open yet?"
How would an informal question like this sound in German? Could I just say "Sind Sie schon geöffnet?"
... or would I have to refer to his restaurant in the sentence and say... "Ist Ihr Restaurant schon geöffnet?"
I'm very confused!

    I'd say "Haben Sie schon geöffnet?". "Ist Ihr Restaurant schon geöffnet?" is also possible.

    informal to a guy you already know: Hast du schon geöffnet (when it's like a one guy shop)
    more than one guy: Habt ihr schon geöffnet?
