We try to be as inclusive and accommodating as possible to everyone who visits us, which is why we don’t take reservations. Especially during our busiest times, we have found that it’s fairest to seat first come first served.
If you are looking for a private evening reception, let us help you plan an event everyone will remember, in a beautiful space with the backdrop of Washington National Cathedral. To make arrangements, please send us a message here.
