RESERVATION RULES

My co-worker came across some seriousness on The Roosevelt’s site that got me cracking up … yes, this is real.

RESERVATIONS

Please call us at (804)658-1935 to make a reservation. You can most easily reach us after 4pm Tuesday-Saturday.

We have exactly 36 seats in our dining room. We leave approximately 12 seats for walk-ins on a first come, first served basis. Our bar seats are also first come, first served. During prime dinner hours we often have a wait list. Our host will be able to give you a wait time approximation as you arrive.

***WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS BY EMAIL***
We don’t always get emails in a timely manner and we don’t want to miss our chance to get you a table!

WE DO TAKE PHONE CALLS
Please call during our business hours 4pm-10pm Tuesday-Saturday. If the phone line is busy or you get our answering machine, please try again. We get a large influx of calls and sometimes can’t help all of our customers at the same time.

LATE SHOW POLICY
We need one member of your party to claim your table within 5 minutes of your reservation time. We will not seat you until your whole party is present. We try to be flexible, but if your group runs late by 20 minutes or more you may lose your reservation or have your names added to the end of the WAIT LIST.

LARGE PARTIES
Because of our size it is difficult for us to seat more than 12 people at one table. We do accept large party reservations but for no more than 8 persons on Friday and Saturday nights.

TABLE LIMIT
All reservations have a 3 hour maximum time limit. If we have no other choice and have reservations to honor, we may have to ask you to finish your evening at the bar .

CHANGES TO RESERVATIONS

LESS PEOPLE
If you know your party will be less than your reservation amount, we would appreciate you letting us know ASAP, so we can use those spaces for other customers.

MORE PEOPLE
Because of our limited seating, we cannot always accommodate a party that has added members to their reservation. Please call ahead and ask if the extra seating is available.

I know, I know, the Roosevelt is noteworthy and they’ve snagged an Elby but the rules of their reservation game might be a little intense.

And I get it – they’re strict. Don’t email your reservations, don’t be 5 minutes late to your reservation time, and note the 3 hour table limit or you’ll find your sweet ass sitting at the bar.  I thought 3 hour table limits were only for Golden Corral-ers.

Whew.
