Reservations: The Basics

WALKING IN

Walk-in's are always welcome! We set aside bar seats and few tables for walk-ins.

If there’s ever a queue, our team will always take a name and cell number, estimate the wait, and keep you up-to-date. 

RESERVATIONS

We accept reservations two weeks out to the date for sheltered outdoor and indoor dining through Resy! Click the RESERVE tab in the menu to check our availability.

CONTACT US

We've gone fully digital! Our phone lines are closed, so the best way to reach us is by emailing hello@happycookingnyc.com. Our office is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm.

Another way to reach us about an existing reservation is by replying to your Resy confirmation texts — that channel hits our dining room team directly.

JUST DRINKS?

All reservations are for dining, not just drinking. We can sometimes accommodate folks for just drinks on a walk-in basis, however priority will be given to those looking to enjoy a full meal.

CANCELATION

We have a 24 hour cancelation policy and no-show fee of $35 per person. WE DO NOT CHARGE CANCELATION FEES IN THE CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, so feel free to cancel on your own through Resy if the weather is discouraging you. This will not trigger an automatic charge. 

If you have booked SIDEWALK DINING

Our reservable outdoor tables are protected by enclosures which will keep you safe from rain and snow, but we're keeping it safe with air still flowing. 

We do have heaters in our outdoor vestibules to keep you cozy while dining, but in extreme weather, make sure to dress appropriately!

If weather is favorable, we often have street side tables that are unsheltered, which we save for walk-ins.

WE DO NOT CHARGE CANCELATION FEES IN THE CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, so feel free to cancel on your own through Resy if the weather is discouraging you. This will not trigger an automatic charge.

If you have booked a table INDOORS:

Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination for all members of your party! This can come in the form of the NYS Excelsior Pass, your Covid-19 Vaccination Card, or a photo of your Vaccination Card. 

We are proud to share that our entire Dining Room Team is fully vaccinated and may be working without masks as well.

YOUR RESERVATION WILL CLEARLY SAY SIDEWALK OR INDOORS — PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF THE TYPE OF RESERVATION YOU ARE BOOKING, as the two are not interchangeable!
