We offer reservations from 5pm through 10pm Tuesday through Saturday. As a small restaurant, we fill quickly and would recommend reserving a table in advance. If you have a showtime you're trying to make, please let us know at the time of the reservation so we can best accommodate you.

Our regularly rotating menu can be adjusted to avoid certain allergens, and we can best accommodate if notified in advance. Feeling adventurous? Call at least 48 hours in advance to set up a five or ten course Chef's Tasting menu to fit your vegan, gluten-free, nut allergy needs!
