Do I need to make a reservation?

Tables by the window are seated on a first-come, first-served basis at the time of your reservation. On busier evenings, window tables are typically full by 5:30pm. You are welcome to put a note in your reservation, but we are unable to guarantee a window table due to the high volume of requests.
