Interesting cocktails, reliable main dishes; excellent crispy nachos. Solicitous service. Rather big and noisy--call it festive or call it hard-to-talk to each other. Humungous portions, especially on the pastas. Next time I'll ask if they serve half portions.

I don't know for sure, but given my impression of the staff, I strongly believe they would be as accommodating as needed. I agree with others that calling ahead and/or telling the server immediately would be best. Enjoy!
