Reservations

Joseph Leonard accepts reservations via Resy starting 28 days in advance of the day. Reservations are available for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, early brunch reservations on Saturday and Sunday, and for dinner for groups of up to six guests. To make a reservation, click below.

If you don't see the time you are looking for, we encourage you to come on down to the restaurant and check with our friendly Maitre D. We keep a meaningful portion of the dining room and most of the bar open exclusively for walk-in guests on a first come basis. Hope to see you soon!  

Reservations

For information on reservations for parties larger than 6, please reach out via the Contact Page.

Walk-in guests are always welcome - our doors are open for breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner. A majority of our guests walk right in!

Our reservations office is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and can be reached at (212) 475-1924. Reservation modifications and cancellations may also be made by replying to the confirmation texts from Resy. 

You may also contact our team via the Contact button located at the bottom of the page and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
