FAQ

What is your late policy for reservations?

We are happy to hold your table 15 minutes past the reservation time. After that time expires we will remove your name from the reservation list and allow you access to be the first available table on our wait list. If there are free tables elsewhere in the restaurant when you arrive, we will be more than happy to accommodate you there.

What dietary restrictions can you accommodate on the chef’s tasting menu?

Our Chefs are more than happy to accommodate nearly every allergy or restriction, simply let us know when making your reservation and we will customize the Chef’s Tasting Menu to your needs.

With more limiting restrictions such as vegan, we are unable to accommodate Vegan Tasting Menus on Fridays and Saturdays. We would be happy to make all possible accommodations for Vegan diners on our Ala Carte menu on these nights, many dishes can be altered to be Vegan.

Most other restrictions and allergies can be accommodated with a reservation any night of the week. Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Shellfish Free, Celiac, Vegetarian and Pescatarian, Nut Allergies, as well as many others, and most combinations of these.
