The policies listed below are in place to ensure that all of our guests receive the most hospitable and efficient service that we are can provide.

Nightbird is a reservation driven restaurant. We are more than happy to welcome walk in guests and will accommodate them as much as possible.

We have a small 32 seat dining room. If there is a seating preference, we will do our best to honor that request. 

The largest group we can accommodate for a regular (non-private) reservation is 10.

If a party comes minus guests, with no notice, unfortunately we have to charge for the number on that confirmed reservation

Seating cannot be guaranteed for any guests in excess of their reservation.

Parties of 8-10 will have a 20% gratuity added to their bill.


Nightbird is a small restaurant and if you wish to cancel or reduce your party size, you must reach someone by phone at the restaurant (415.829.7565) at least forty-eight (48) hours before the reservation for parties of 3 persons or less.  If a reservation is cancelled after the 48 hour window, we charge the card on file $50 per person in the form of a gift certificate and it will be mailed to you. 

Please note that if a cancellation of a party of any size happens the same day of that reservation, a $145 charge for each person will be applied to the credit card on file with no gift certificate. 

Parties of 4 persons or more require 1-week notice of cancellation. Within a week notice a full charge will be applied to the card on file.

We hold tables for 20 minutes past the reservation time. If running late, please let us know and we will do our best to hold the table.

Nightbird has a Zero Tolerance Harassment Policy. Please treat our staff with integrity and kindness, just as we gladly treat our guests. 

We offer a 5 course tasting with an optional wine pairing.  We are happy to accommodate any dietary preferences or allergies o the best of our abilities. We do not split tastings.

We have a corkage fee of $40 for the first bottle and $60 for every additional bottle.

Thank you for taking the time to read over our policies! If you have any questions, please call the restaurant at 415.829.7565.
