Riley Street Station Call-Ahead Seating Policy

Due to the confines of our dining room, Riley Street Station does not accept reservations Friday or Saturday Nights. Instead of reservations we offer a Call-Ahead Seating Option.

Save Time with our Call-Ahead Seating

At anytime day or night, call Riley Street Station and ask to be added to our “Call-Ahead List” for the desired date and time that you would like to be seated for your meal.

After the Riley Street employee adds your name to our “Call-Ahead List”, on the day of your scheduled arrival, our host/hostess will add your name to the actual nightly wait list one (1) hour before your arrival.

When you arrive, advise the host/hostess that you “called ahead” and give them your name. They will then tell you where you are on the wait list for that night and give you an estimated wait time.

Please Note: This is not a guaranteed reservation, and there is no guarantee that a table will be ready for you upon your arrival. This policy only gives you a head start on the wait list for that particular night.

When your name reaches the top of the wait list, you will be seated. However if your name reaches the top of the list before you arrive, we will seat the next party on the wait list, but you will still remain at the top of the list until you arrive. Under no circumstances will tables be held if your party has not arrived.

Please be aware that 15 minutes after your requested seating time, your name will be taken off the wait list if no member from your group shows up to alert the host/hostess of your arrival. If you do show up after that 15-minute grace period, your name will be placed on the bottom of the wait list with the other walk-in customers.
