Bar Seats Policy:

Since we have a limited number of bar seats and there is a high volume of bar requests, party of 4 and more will be seated at table seats instead of bar seats.  If all table seats are reserved by other parties, then large party may be asked to have bar seats.

 Our bar seats are very limited, so we do not guarantee that you will get a bar seat even though you have requested.  Bar seats are available upon request only, and the chance of getting bar seats depends on when (e.i., how many weeks before) the guests make a reservation.  We take reservations up to two months from now.

Deposit Requirement for Large Parties:

We require $98 deposit for all parties larger than 5 guests or more. The deposit amount will be credited on your dinner bill. The cancellation policy will be applied to cancellations within 72 hours of your reservations ($98 per guest will be automatically charged on your credit card). For the parties smaller than 4 guests, please refer to “Cancellation Policy” below.

Our first seating begins between 5:00 pm to 6:00pm and all diners will finish before 8pm.  Last order for the a la carte and desserts is 7:30pm, so we encourage our guests to be seated as early as possible during the first seating time.  The second seating starts from 8:00 to 8:45pm.  The last order at second seating is 10:45pm.
