Apologies for all the inconvenience but we really are unable to serve after 8.30 pm. And that's why we had to say NO to you.

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
