While children are welcome in our dining room, please note that the restaurant is intimate and the dining experience averages two plus hours depending on the amount of courses you may wish to enjoy. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate strollers in the dining room. If you have children in your party and have any questions, please call our reservations office.

Walk-in Guests

Our 15 seats-bar is available on a walk-in basis and the full menu is offered. Three bar booths that seat up to 4 guests each are available for walk-ins as well. We offer a courtesy 30 minutes hold on one of the bar booths if you call 30 minutes ahead of your arrival time at the restaurant . Please call 202-737-7700.

Kindly note that our guests’ plans change and we do get some last minute openings due to cancellations. We recommend placing your name on our waiting list for any given date you are not able to make a reservation for initially – we will call you if something opens up.

Weekend Credit Card Requirement & Cancellation Policy

All weekend reservations (Friday and Saturday) and reservations for parties of 6 guests require that a credit card be provided at the time of the reservation. Your card will not be charged, it is simply held in regards to our 48-hour cancellation policy. Should you need to cancel your reservation, we kindly ask for a 2-day notice to avoid a $25 fee per guest for parties up to 5 guests and $50 fee per guest for parties up to 6 guests.

Large Parties

Kindly note that 6 guests is the largest table we seat in the dining room. Inquiries for larger parties require private dining arrangements and can be discussed with a manager at 202-737-7703.


Dress Code

We recommend a smart casual dress code at the restaurant. Please refrain from wearing sportswear, flip-flops, shorts and hats.
