Degustation: Reservations and Website

We're coming from Toronto to NYC in the first week of August.

Will try Degustation for sure -- but, cannot find a website or any information about reservations -- do we need reservations? how far out are they made? Telephone resos only? Is there a website that I'm missing?

Thanks, in advance.

  1. Reservations are advised as the place only seats about 15. They also accept walk-ins. I had no trouble getting in a few weeks ago on a short-notice reservation.

    1. They don't have a web site (annoying, isn't it?). There is an old menu on The menu changes daily so that's why that one is out of date.

      Call to make reservations. I'd call 2-3 weeks on advance. It's not super difficult but I would not try to walk in on a Friday/Saturday without a reservation.

          I believe you can call 1 month in advance; if you really want to go,might as well do that tomake sure you get the exact time you want, and enjoy, a truly killer meal.

            That was true years ago but Degustation is not as busy as they once were. I've gotten in with 6-7 days notice and have seen walk-ins be seated.

              I walked in recently around 8 pm on a weeknight. No problem. Under the radar screen and I kinda like it that way (no website, no reservations). Other times when we needed a specific time we called and made reservations.
