Cancellation Policy

When you make a reservation at The View we set a table aside for you that evening and plan our service accordingly.

In doing this we often have to turn away many other diners looking for a View experience.  Because of this a credit card is required to hold all reservations.

There is a strict $50 per person cancellation fee for all reservation no-shows or cancellations within 24 hours of the reservation.

Should your dining plans change, we ask that you please let us know as soon as possible, so that we may put your table back into inventory.

If you cancel with less than 24 hours advance notice, you will be responsible for the entire cancellation fee.

We do not overbook our restaurant, and we guarantee you a table, therefore, we cannot make exceptions (for family emergencies, weather, snowstorm, accidents, illness, etc.) to our cancellation policy.

If this policy is uncomfortable to you please consider this prior to making a reservation at The View.
