Hi! Our dress code is upscale casual or business casual. We ask that gentlemen don't wear ripped jeans, sleeveless shirts, and hats. Other than that, you'll be fine!

Yes it is, you should ask for a booth on the main dining floor. The lower floor has a bar and is an excellent place to have a drink and a view of the 'burgh!

Why wouldn't you make a reservation? So long as they don't charge for a cancellation, make it! Don't leave things to chance and plan ahead is my motto, especially when it comes to good/popular places to eat.
