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 HERE to check our availability.

NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE TO AN EXISTING RESERVATION? 

Resy makes it easy! Just log into your account and pull up your reservation — you'll see the option to cancel or change your booking. (It's possible that the time you want isn't available, but all available times are listed on Resy.) For day-of, last minute changes, text back to our confirmation texts!

CONTACT US

We've gone fully digital! The best way to reach us is by emailing hello@happycookingnyc.com. Our office is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm.

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/no-show fee of $35 per person which is charged manually on a case-by-case basis.

MORE THAN A DAY IN ADVANCE?

You may cancel a reservation without penalty anytime up to 24 hours in advance of your reservation time.

COVID?

If it’s less than 24 hours before your reservation, and someone from your party has tested positive for COVID or is experiencing COVID like symptoms, no fee will be assessed when you cancel via Resy, provided you email our team at hello@happycookingnyc.com to let us know what’s happening.

BAD WEATHER?

If it’s less than 24 hours before your reservation and the weather sucks, no fee will be assessed so long as you cancel via Resy. This will not automatically trigger a charge. No additional communication is necessary in inclement weather - we’re always watching the skies!


RESERVATIONS TIPS

BE MINDFUL OF THE TIME! 

For dinner, we plan for 1.5 hours for reservations for 2 -3 guests and 2 hours for reservations for 4+

PARTY SIZE MATTERS!

We have limited space for large parties, and we book out quickly! 

We are taking reservations for groups up to six people max.  For larger parties and buyouts, email hello@happycookingnyc.com for more information.

NO RESERVATION, NO PROBLEM!

What you see on Resy is what we have available. We always welcome walk-ins if you're not seeing a reservation time that works for you; swing by anytime! We set aside bar seating and certain tables just for walk-ins.

SIDEWALK OR INDOORS

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. 

While our outdoor vestibules are warmed by heaters, it’s still outside! We recommend dressing warm!

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

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!
