  1. You never know, but could be as long as 1.5 hrs with no reservations. I'm assuming you have a "normal" party, say 2-4. Could get lucky; say 45 min.

    1. Last time I went we waited 1.5 hours WITH a reservation. Lots of missteps that evening, so bad that I will not return to HoPR.

      1. So how long did you end up waiting?

            There's always a wait at HOP with ressie. Just the way they do things over there. I'm surprise it was a 1.5 hour wait...

              Whether you have a reservation or not, the usual wait is 45 - 60 min. with reservation and up to 120 min. without. They'll usually throw in a bottle of house (cheap) red if wait for more than an hour with reservation.
