The sentence can have either meaning. Grammatically, it would be more elegant for "on Tuesday" simply to modify "will book". However, it is more common to state the date for which the reservation is made, not the date on which the reservation is made.

The sentence can be reworded to remove any ambiguity, e.g.:

  • On Tuesday I'll book the restaurant.
  • I'll book the restaurant for Tuesday.
