What We Ask of You

Our dining room dress code is business casual to semi-formal. If you are dressed in more relaxed attire, you may be seated in our lounge area instead of the main dining rooms. For more details on our dress code, please click here.

It is our policy to only seat complete parties as delayed guests impact following reservations.

Kitchen and wine cellar tours are still halted for the foreseeable future.

There is no self parking in the neighborhood, valet parking is available.

Dessert Room

If you have already secured your dinner reservation, there is no need to call the restaurant to reserve a dessert room table, one has already been secured for you. If you are interested, please inform your dining room server when you are seated for dinner that you would like to finish your culinary experience with a table upstairs in our famous Harry Waugh Dessert Room. We will make all the arrangements for you at that time.

For the first time, we are taking limited early reservations for the dessert room.  If you are interested in making a dessert room reservation, please call 813-251-2421.  We are only taking reservations for times between 5:00PM and 6:45PM.
If you are looking for a later time, we are still allowing for limited dessert walk-ins. (subject to availability)
