Our dining room has been described as "quaint" or "intimate", we call it cozy. Because of this, our seating policy differs slightly from traditional, larger restaurants in the following ways:
Although we do not accept reservations, we do accept call ahead seating; you can call to put your name on the wait list. We do ask that you call within a half hour of your expected arrival to better assess wait times. If you're not here when your party is next on the list, you will be skipped but just let us know when you do arrive and your entire party is present and you're next to be seated.
During peak business hours (especially on the weekend) we employ the following guides;
Sign in on the waitlist upon your arrival. Parties are not always sat in the order in which they have signed in, rather according to the size of the party and tables that become available.
We ask that you be considerate of seated diners upon your arrival. You may also leave your cell number to be called when your table is ready. enjoy a nice stroll around our neighborhood (Schumacher Place/German Village/Merion Village), at which time we will hold the table for five minutes.
We will seat you when all members of your party are present.
Special Note for Parties over 4 people; We want you to enjoy your dining experience with us and the time spent with family and friends. With that being said, we do not recommend parties over 4 people. Wait times can double, sometimes triple for larger parties.
We may stop taking additional tables prior to close if the waitlist exceeds our closing time. We recommend calling ahead if you will be arriving within an hour of our close.
We hope this information helps in planning your visit with us and if you have any questions just give us a call. We are in the kitchen.
Thanks for thinking of us and we look forward to seeing you!
