We seat both the inside and outside of the restaurant and do not guarantee outside seating. That being said, we seat all Sunday - Thursday reservations outdoors the majority of the time unless requested otherwise. For Friday and Saturday reservations, we recommend reserving between 5:00 - 6:15 or after 9:45 for the greatest chance at sitting outside.
On Fridays and Saturday, we seat the outdoors on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wish to sit outside and there is not a table immediately available, you will be given the option to sit indoors immediately or wait for a table outside to become available. The wait for an outdoor table on Fridays and Saturdays during peak dining times is typically 30 - 45 minutes.
Calissa welcomes large dining groups. For private or semi-private dining options, bachelorette parties and other special dinner reservations please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Parties of 9 and greater are exclusively offered our Large Party Prefix Dinner package, which includes the table’s choice of three appetizers, three entrees and three sides as a family-style menu at $65 per person.
We do not offer the option for a la carte dining if you have reserved with a group of 9 or more.
Calissa holds tables for up to 15 minutes past your reservation time. If your entire party has not arrived 15 minutes after your reservation time, the table will be released to our waitlist. While we appreciate a call to let us know that you are running late, we cannot always hold a table 15 minutes past your reservation time. We are almost always able to make accommodations for late arrivals for Sunday-Thursday reservations.
Life is different. We pay a living, meaningful wage to all employees via an 18% administrative fee. We understand that many customers prefer to leave a gratuity. If this is the case, you may write in an additional gratuity on your credit card slip (as you might abroad). We wish to reiterate, however, that no further gratuity is necessary or expected.
