Reservations are accepted one calendar month at a time, starting at NOON EST on the first of each month. For example, on February 1st, reservations for March will be released. You may make a reservation at any time during the two-month period, based on availability.

What is José’s Table?

For an exclusive dining experience within minibar, reserve José’s Table. A private dining room adjacent to the kitchen, José's Table is designed for a single party of up to six guests.
