Reservation Guide

We’re thrilled that you would like to come and join us at Lemaire! Be it for a special occasion, or just a night out with friends, we’ve put together a what to know guide for reservations at Lemaire.

  • We strongly encourage advanced reservations.
    • Peak days, such as Friday and Saturdays, every night in December, and holidays typically sell out 2-3 weeks in advance.
    • Advanced reservations will be required during the holiday season from November 25 – December 31.
    • We have a limited number of tables that can hold large parties, we recommend 1-2 months advance reservations for non-peak days and 3-5 months for peak days.
  • Reservations are taken six months to the date in advance at 9am. For example, reservations for October 5th open on April 5th.
  • Due to the unique layout of the restaurant:
    • Parties larger than four are considered a large party in Lemaire and reservations must be made over the phone.
    • Parties larger than ten require a private dining space.
    • We are unable to accept multiple table reservations, such as two tables of six next to each other.
  • Reservations are currently accepted for lunch and dinner and breakfast during the week depending on business levels.
    • Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to accept reservations / walk-ins for breakfast service on Saturdays and Sundays for those not staying in the hotel with us.
  • An automatic gratuity of 20% is automatically added to all parties larger than six.
  • We are not able to provide separate checks for parties of six or more guests or to accept more than four forms of payment.

Special Requests:

  • Specific seating requests are always noted, and we do our best to accommodate these.
  • Allergies:
    • We take food allergies / dietary concerns extremely serious in Lemaire, with steps taken to avoid cross contamination.
    • Please let us know at the time of booking what allergies a guest might have so we can note it in the reservation and plan accordingly.
    • We recognize how stressful this can be so our goal is to make the dining experience enjoyable and worry free. Please contact the Events Manager directly with any concerns.
  • Other special requests, such as flowers, special desserts, or menu items, can usually be accommodated; however, these do take more time. Please contact the Events Manager to discuss these requests.
    • Requests made in online reservations are not guaranteed.
  • A $2.50/person cake cutting fee will be applied to all cakes/cupcakes not ordered through the restaurant directly.

The Bar:

  • Opens at 11am, Monday-Saturday, and noon on Sundays, and stays open until close.
  • Bar seating is first come, first serve.
  • The conservatory is reservations only for breakfast and lunch and then first come, first serve for lounge seating in the evening.
  • From 2pm-5pm daily, we offer a lighter fare lounge menu.
