We don’t take reservations but after all tables are taken we start a list which you can put your name and number down. You do not have to wait at the restaurant. We will send you a confirmation text you when your table is about ready. You and your party will have fifteen minutes to come back to the restaurant and check in or you will be taken off the list.
