Would a reservation during dinner at about 7pm be necessary for 2 people or would walking in be fine as well? Looking to bring my wife for her birthday dinner over here!

Hi Leah, No, you do not have to be over 18 to dine with us - we hold a restaurant and cafe liquor license. We will not, however, serve alcohol to anyone who is under 18 years old. Rare Steakhouse
