We eat here quite often and usually just sit at the bar. Otherwise you absolutely need a reservation and may still have to wait to get in. Get there early though, before 7 or even the bar is packed. Also, many of the entrees you may get as a half order, which is perfect to accompany a bottle of wine. For wine, always look at the specials at the front of the wine list or ask Julio for a recommendation in your price range, He can find something that is good and pretty reasonable as a rule.
