The best way to make a reservation is online via Yelp Reservations: you can see all the availability on it and quickly make and change your plans.
We accept walk ins, and last minute reservations by phone but only during business hours;
Cancellation policy and credit card holds:
Due to experiencing a very high no-show rate for last months we have made a decision to hold credit card information upon making a reservation -
Yelp Reservations will charge $25 the reservations marked "No-show";
If your plans have changed - please give us a "heads-up" at least by 12pm of the day of the reservation so we do not say no to other people.
Last minute cancellations (after 12 pm of the day of the reservation) may be subject to a charge of $25 cancellation fee.
We do not book parties more than 4 people for Friday, Saturdays and holiday nights to ensure proper social distancing. You can still book parties up to 8 people for Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights only. Multiple bookings for two tables of 4 will be accepted through reservation system, however each table will get different server and section.
All staff is wearing masks and fully vaccinated against COVID-19;
We encourage reservations to ensure proper social distancing;
Due to new city of Chicago requirements guests must show a proof of fully vaccination against COVID-19 and ID as well as wear face masks while not seated.
