Unfortunately, we are not accepting small party reservations.
Seating is first come, first served.
There is a walk-in waitlist for peak times, but wait time or a callback is not guaranteed.
Walk-ins of large groups (6 or more) often cannot be accommodated due to the size of our venue. All tables without reservations are subject to our in-house 1.5 hour time limit, and begins when the first guest arrives.
Large Group Reservation Policy:
All parties of 6 or more require at least two days advance notice and a no-show deposit per guest and/or standard minimum spend (includes food & drink) agreement prior to arrival. Book ahead of time if you want to ensure that we have the space for your large party! Party size is set at the time of booking and we cannot add extra guests to your table the day of. Any "joiners" will be seated as normal walk-in guests at available tables elsewhere or put on a waitlist.
Reservation time begins from the time the first guest in the party is seated. We only hold reservations for 10 minutes. To avoid being charged a no-show fee and risk having your table given away, please have your entire party arrive on time for your reservation.
Due to the small nature of our space, no, you cannot add more people to your reservation the day of. What you reserve for is what you get. Do not reserve for 8 people and then tell us it's actually going to be 16 people when you get here. We cannot accommodate that. Other guests will have to sit elsewhere in the venue, if any space is available at all. There is no going back and forth between tables if this happens. If there is available seating for extra guests, a fee of $10 per extra guest will be charged and your reservation duration reduced to 1.5 hours (from the time of the first guest arriving) as this is now considered a walk-in group. So, if your extra guests arrive after you've been there for an hour, you will only have 30 min left in your reservation, even if you booked for 3 hours. As stated, walk-ins have a table time limit of 1.5 hours.
All parties of 5 or more, reservation or walk-in, are also subject to auto-gratuity.
Private event full and partial venue buyouts are also available. We do not provide event rentals of equipment such as patio heaters, audio/visual equipment, party décor, or buffet stands. Yes, you can bring your own cake! :)
If you do not receive an email confirming your reservation and we have not received a no-show deposit or completed minimum spend agreement, it has not been confirmed by us and no space has been held for you.

Thanks so much for considering us!
