Valentine's w/o reservations at Beer Bistro or Volo?
Ok - I completely recognize that I'm an idiot for NOT making reservations...I just completely forgot it was Valentine's Day and a Saturday and etc...
So anyway, everyone is entirely booked up, as expected. But I'm wondering if anyone can give me an idea of whether eating at the bar at Beer Bistro or Volo is a possibility? There are just the 2 of us, we don't mind waiting around and drinking, but we just want an idea of how crazy it is to think we could snag a seat for some food.
Just wanted to thank you all for making me feel better about not making reservations. It's just not one of those holidays that's very important to us...
BUT it worked out fine - maybe better than fine. We went to BeerBistro, where they sat us at the window bar until a nice comfy bar table came open. Service, food, and beer were all wonderful. So thanks for the info!
Well last Friday I called in to Volo to make a reservation for a table for 4 at 7pm, but they informed me that they don't take reservations and usually its just first come first serve. I'm not sure if they change their policy for Valentine's Day? However, we went at 7pm anyway and just had a couple of beers to start off at the bar area while we waited for our table. We didn't really mind since it was a short 15 min wait before they seated us. As the night went on, the dining area was still full but a lot more people came in to drink at the bar rather than eat dinner.
We went to Beer Bistro for NYE a couple of years ago when we'd forgotten about resos, too. The meal was fantastic. I think that says a lot — usually those prix fixe meals on NYE or Valentine's Day are overpriced and/or horrific. But that was not the case at Beer Bistro. I've been meaning to go back ever since. Call right now for a reso, I'm sure it's not too late.
