| Here are some suggestions
to help you make the most of your evening at Hamersley's Bistro and
some explanations of our policies.
Weekend Reservations: People have busy lives,
and as everyone coordinates with friends and finds a babysitter,
our prime weekend seatings can get booked weeks in advance. We apologize
if we're unable to give you your first choice of reservations.You
can still make spur of the moment plans- we do get cancellations,
and it is always worthwhile to call that day to see if we have anything
Weeknight Dining: If you have the flexibility
in your schedule, please visit us on a weeknight! As with all restaurants,
we may be able to accommodate your first choice dining time on these
nights. We also welcome walk-ins, especially during the week, with
tables set aside just for our spontaneous friends in the small dining
room, out on the patio, or a handful of nearby tables in the bar.
Valet Parking: We offer valet parking as a
convenience for our diners. However, we do not own the valet company
and do not supervise the employees. Please help us maintain a good
relationship with our neighborhood and with the law by not parking
in South End resident spaces. Also, please collect your car promptly
after dinner- cars left in the valet zone are ticketed by the police.
Liquor Policies: Massachusetts has some very
strict laws regulating the serving of alcohol. Because of these
policies, it is against the law for our guests to bring their own
wine. We are also unable to serve only drinks to guests on our patio-
we are required to also serve some type of food. This is why Gordon
has designed a delicious selection of light appetizers, which he
invites you to try with a glass of wine for a casual happy hour
on the patio.
Cake!: We love birthdays, and especially birthday cakes!
Our pastry chef is happy to make you a personalized cake for the
birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion being celebrated.
Please give us at least 48 hours notice.
Food Allergies: We realize that in our health-conscious
society, many people have special dietary needs and food allergies.
We would like to accommodate your needs, and the more advance notice
you can give us, the better. Please mention your requirements to
the host when making your reservation.
Private Parties: Bring the Hamersley's experience to your
next private party and let us do all the work. Our small dining
room is an ideal meeting spot for up to twenty people, whether it's
for a business dinner, wedding celebration, or a gathering of friends.
We will work with you to develop a personalized menu and specially
chosen wines to delight your guests. For the ultimate special event,
the whole restaurant is available. Sophia or Tiffany can provide
details- please give them a call at 423-2700.
If you have any questions, please don't
hesitate to contact us at 423-2700.
