*Reservation Terms and Conditions
If you arrive late to your reservation, simply approach the hostess stand and advise them of your late arrival, and original reservation time. They'll be able to check back in the system to confirm your reservation and will then advise you if they are still able to accommodate your party. This will possibly depend on your party size, restaurant's capacity for the evening, and how late you are.

In most cases, your name will be re-inserted into the seating queue following the time you've arrived for check-in (not by your original, 'booked' time), and you'll be seated at the next available table for your party size.

Keep in mind that it is requested & recommended that you arrive at check-in for dining, 15 minutes before your reservation time.

Gratuity is not included.
