We made a reservation and showed up, 30 minutes later we were still waiting. Also they appeared to be seating others that showed up after us. We even checked with them, and they said “still waiting on a table” so never trust your reservation here!

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.
