F.A.Q.

HOW DO DINNER RESERVATIONS WORK?

Call 773.235.8800 to submit your request or click here to make a reservation. The tables in our dining room are reserved for parties specifically dining, not for parties only drinking. For large parties over 10 people, we have a communal table in our private event space. We do accept advance reservations for the communal table for up to 14 people in two seatings, 6:00 pm, and after 9 pm. Email your large party reservation request to zach@bedfordchicago.com with your desired time and group size noted in the subject line.

HOW DO VAULT RESERVATIONS WORK?
Tables in the vault may be reserved if a $500 food and beverage minimum is met. Additionally, we offer half and full vault buyouts. Otherwise, the vault is first come-first served.

DO YOU HONOR GUEST LISTS?
No. Private events and established dinner reservations get first priority if there is a line. Then it is on a first come, first serve basis depending upon occupancy constraints.

DO YOU OFFER BOTTLE SERVICE?
Yes. We include liquor, wine and champagne among our tableside offerings. Please call 773.235.8800 to inquire about availability.
