We do not accept reservations and instead operate on a daily waitlist. While we can’t predict the wait ahead of time, you are always welcome to add your name should we be on a wait. You can do so by coming into the restaurant and checking in with the hostess or you may also call ahead if you are in the vicinity. If you utilize our call ahead waitlist, please remember we allow a grace period of 5 minutes once we notify you that your table is ready, so please provide yourself extra time for parking.

Please understand that due to our seating capacity, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 6.

Our dining room is currently at 50% capacity, and while we wish you could stay forever, if we do have guests waiting for your table, we may politely ask for the table back at the conclusion of your meal.

For larger groups, we offer off site catering options. Please email Lauren at for inquiries.
