Are your patios dog friendly? Are they heated?
We love dogs! Patios at both restaurants are dog friendly.
The Lake Merritt location has a handful of tables underneath our heater.
The Dimond location’s patio is enclosed, but does not have heaters.

I am trying to book a  reservation, but the time/party size/day of the week is not available. What do I do?
If you do not see a reservation for the parameters you selected, it is mostly likely because we are either already booked, or do not accommodate a reservation within those parameters.

Our Lake Merritt location takes reservations for parties up to 6. Our weekend brunch reservations are limited as we reserve most of the restaurant for walk-ins.

The Dimond location takes reservations for parties up to 10. 

Both locations accept walk-ins of all sizes at all times; weekend brunch gets full fast and large party walk-ins may see longer wait times.

For parties of 14 or more, please see our Private Events options

I am running late for my reservation. How can I get in touch with the host?
We will hold your reservation for 15 minutes. Please contact the host stand by selecting “send a message” on the open table confirmation email that you have received. 

How long is the wait on the weekends?
Our wait times vary from 0 to 60 minutes for weekend brunch. If there is a wait, you can put your name on the waitlist in person and we will text you when your table is ready.
