A little bit of a wait before the concert, we elected to take a seat at the bar for dinner. The bar is wide enough, and I liked it better than being crammed in beside people on those busy nights when you almost touch elbows...More

If you do not accept reservations; then your website should show that! As well, if not, why not?

I have never had a problem getting in without a reservation however I have also made reservations too. Not sure if their policy has changed but we will be there in Feb and I'm sure that reservations have been made .

I can't seem to find how/where to make a reservation, When I call the number I get a recording that says send it to a particular email address. I sent it and it bounces back. I tried different variations of it and still bounced back. I cant type it here because it won't allow any HTML or website addresses or emails to be entered in this question. They have a recoding but there is nowhere to leave a message. It says that the mailbox is full. Please let me know how to make a reservation for 10 people for this restaurant.
