Gusto 101 - Wait times

Has anyone been to Gusto on a Friday night lately? I'm thinking of bringing my parents (mom is celiac so GF pasta is a huge draw) but they're not the "wait around for an hour" type.

With it being winter and the patio closed, are the wait times any better?

Thanks!

    They used to take reservations for 6 pm only but there might be a minimum group.

      They still take reservations but it is only for 6pm and for up to 8 people. I was there on Monday and the place was completely packed around 730pm when we left.

      Not sure if you have been before but I think the food was just average, and the space was gorgeous, but cramped with tables packed closely and it was way too noisy to really have a good conversation.

      FYI - Not sure if they're done - but they actually enclosed the patio recently.

        I really don't understand the draw of this place.

          Pick-up joint.

            For me it's the kale salad - not the meat dishes:)
