FAQs

How does Tock work?

All time slots and available number of seats, will appear on the day you are looking for a reservation. If a time slot (e.g. 7:00 pm), does not appear, it is because we are totally booked at that time! We would love to host you at an earlier or later time, depending on what is available.

What type of cuisine do you serve?

We specialize in authentic Mexican food served family-style. That means no Tex-Mex and nothing slathered in American cheese or sauces (though we love American cheese and sauce), but rather cheese straight from Oaxaca and in your quesadilla and sauces made in house and with Mexican spices. Before you ask, yes there are tacos.

What is Mezcal?

Think of mezcal like a cousin of tequila. While all tequila comes from blue agave, mezcal can be made from over 30 agave plants, some of which only grow wild. Indigenous to Mexico, mezcal must be made from 80 to 100% agave by law. Artisans slow roast agave by burying the plant in wood-fire earth pits lined with volcanic rocks, thus resulting in the signature smoky flavor that's earned mezcal its new-found recognition amongst spirits today.

Do you take walk-ins?

Yes. Booking in advance is highly recommended if you want to avoid wait times. Walk-ins are accommodated on a first come, first served basis.

Is your bar open later than the restaurant?

Yes. While our kitchen is open till 9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 10 p.m. on Thursday; and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, our bar remains open 'til close Monday through Saturday. We are closed on Sundays.

What should I do if I am running late?

Please call us if you are running late. If you do not arrive within 15 minutes of your booking time, there may be a delay in serving or seating you.

I have a party of 10 or more, how can I book a table?

Yes. We have a semi-private dining room where we can accommodate large parties for up to 14 guests. Please call for large party reservations.

What's the difference between a regular reservation and a communal reservation?

We've got a pretty large dining room with separate types of seatings depending on how you would like to dine. If you're looking for a more formal experience and meal, a regular reservation is the way to go. If you're feeling convivial and would like to have a few cocktails, some bites, and don't mind sitting next to possible strangers and striking up conversation, our high-top floating communal bar is perfect for you. We also have our handmade wood center bar that requires no reservation and lets you see our mezcal mixologists in action.

Do you open for lunch?

We do not open for lunch except on Friday's because, well, TGIF. Our Friday lunch menu is the same as our dinner menu. We also open for brunch on Saturday and offer a slightly different menu, in addition to brunch cocktails.
