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.

We do not split large parties.  If separate reservations are made for larger groups, those reservations may not be seated near each.

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. Parties of 4 persons or more require 1-week notice of cancellation. All Holiday cancellations require 1-week notice, regardless of party size. Cancellation messages left on the restaurant’s voicemail must be confirmed by a return phone call from the restaurant to avoid any cancellation fees.

Please note that for any reduction in party size or cancellation that are not within the guidelines a fee will be charged at the rate of $125 per person for all bookings. Charges are non refundable.

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.
