Reservation + Corkage Policies
INCOMPLETE PARTY POLICY
In order to seat every reservation in a timely fashion we require that all parties of four (4) or more people are physically present at the restaurant before they can be seated.
EARLY OR LATE RESERVATION POLICY
At Brenner Pass we strive to make accurate bookings and seat every party with a reservation at the time booked. In order for us to do this it is important that each party arrive at the time of it's reservation. If your party arrives earlier than it's reserved time, we will do our best to seat your party as soon as possible but may not be able to seat your party until the reserved time. If your party arrives or is incomplete more than five minutes after it's reserved time, we may not be able to seat it at the reserved table but we will do our best to seat your party at an available space which may include our communal table or the bar. If your party arrives or is incomplete fifteen minutes after it's reservation time, Brenner Pass reserves the right to cancel your reservation.
Brenner Pass offers wine bottle corkage at $20.00 per 750 mL
We are happy to provide glasses as well as a chiller and/or decanter for your wine. If you plan to bring more than two bottles, will require more than one decanter, or require special glassware (flutes, over sized wine glasses, etc.) please inform the restaurant at least 48 hours in advance. We will do our best to accommodate your request. However, we cannot guarantee that all requested items will be provided.
