RESERVATION POLICY

MonAlyssa is an intimate restaurant of only 50 seats and they do fill up fast! We strongly encourage you to make reservations early. Reservations can be made by calling 732-899-9199 Ext 2 or right here on the website. On this page you will find the online reservation system application. Please review our reservation policies carefully.

Large Party Policy
Large-party reservations (7 or more) require a credit card to reserve and must be confirmed the day of the reservation.  Please call to reserve 732-899-9199 Ext 2.

Dinner reservations for large parties will be taken for 6:00 p.m. seating or after 8:00 p.m.

This restaurant reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee according to its cancellation policy (see below). For large parties, please note that cancellations will only be accepted BY PHONE at least 4 hours prior to booking regardless if the original reservation was made online or via phone.

Change in Party Number
MonAlyssa will make every effort to accommodate additional guests in your party; however, given the size of the restaurant, we make no guarantee. If you plan to have additional people join you, you must call in advance to ensure we can accommodate.  Larger parties (6 or more) must pay for the exact number reserved unless the number is adjusted 4 hours prior to the reservation time. In this case, the party will pay a per person fee for those who do not show up, according to the cancellation policy.
Cancellation Policy
MonAlyssa reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee to the given credit card for any booking of 7 or more cancelled 4 hours or less than the reserved time OR who do not show up at the reserved time.  In this instance, the cancellation fee will be $15 per person ($35 for Holidays) unless we are otherwise able to fill the vacancy. The cancellation fee reflects any cost incurred in terms of staff, food or beverage.
Reservation Timing Policy
Parties that are late for their reservation time are given ten minutes before we call the phone number that we have on file to ascertain arrival status.  Given the limited number of seats in the restaurant, fifteen minutes late with no contact will void your reservation.

Please understand – this is solely due to the size and seating capacity of the restaurant. If you are late, we urge you to contact us so we can make a best effort to accommodate your party.   For large parties (7 or more) that are late and do not contact us according to this policy, we will charge your credit card accordingly (see above).

RESERVATIONS FAQ

Click the question to read the answer.

How far in advance may I book?
We allow reservations 30 days in advance of the calendar date for our Restaurant. We do start taking Holiday Reservations 90 days in advance.
How do I know my online reservation went through?
When you finalize a reservation with SeatMe they will send you a confirmation email immediately.  SeatMe will also send you a reminder email 24 hours prior to your reservation.  If you do not receive an email, or do not hear from the MonAlyssa, we would recommend calling to confirm your table and verify your reservation booking (732.899.9199 Ext 2).
Do I need to CONFIRM my reservation?
No.  If you provided a cell phone number SeatMe will send you a confirmation text were you can cancel your reservation or confirm your reservation.
Why is a credit card required to book a weekend, group reservation or holiday reservation?
Weekends at MonAlyssa are a very busy time…so, we have made the decision to require a credit card to book these limited reservations.  Your information will be stored in a secure SeatMe “vault” and will only be charged per the terms of our cancellation policy.

We also require a credit card for booking of groups (7 or more people) due to limited space. Holidays we require all table sizes to place a card on file to hold your reservation, as this will help us with no shows.

The number of guests in my party has changed, is that ok?
MonAlyssa will make every effort to accommodate additional guests in your party; however, given the size of the restaurant, we make no guarantee. If you plan to have additional people join you, you must call in advance to ensure we can accommodate.

Larger parties (7 or more) must pay for the exact number reserved unless the number is adjusted 4 hours prior to the reservation time. In this case, the party will pay a per person fee for those who do not show up, according to the cancellation policy.

What is your cancellation policy?
We ask for 4 hours notice for changes to or cancellations of a reservation.  Any reservations cancelled within the 4 hour window or for which the guests do not show (this is termed a No Show per MonAlyssa LLC) will be charged a fee of $15 per person (Holiday with a Pre-Fixe Menu $30 per person).  If we are able to re-book your table, this fee will be waived. The cancellation fee reflects any cost incurred in terms of staff, food or beverage.
Do you have a WAITLIST?
If we do not have your preferred time or date available we are happy to add your name to our wait list for that date.  As we confirm reservations each day and encounter cancellations, we offer available tables to the parties on our waitlist first. 

All parties will receive a text & two calls in an attempt to offer available tables, no voicemails are left – so please make sure to give us a working cell phone and check for missed calls on the date you are attempting to secure a reservation.  We will do our best to contact you, but cannot hold tables for extended periods of time – thank you for your understanding!

How long do you hold reservations?
We will hold a table for 15 minutes after your reserved time, if your full party has not arrived at that point we will release the table and your group will be treated as a walk-in, at which point we will do our best to seat you when a table becomes available.

If you are running late, need to cancel a reservation, or make changes to your party size or reservation time, please notify us as soon as possible and we will see what we have available. Given the limited number of seats in the restaurant, fifteen minutes late with no contact will void your reservation.

Please understand – this is solely due to the size and seating capacity of the restaurant. If you are late, we urge you to contact us so we can make a best effort to accommodate your party.   For large parties (7 or more) that are late and do not contact us according to this policy, we will charge your credit card accordingly (see above).

How large of a group will you book a reservation for?
We accept reservations for week nights for parties up to 22 people maximum, depending on space available.  On Friday and Saturday nights, the largest party we can accommodate is a party of 16 persons.  Please note, for parties larger than 6 people MonAlyssa does include a 20% gratuity on the final bill.
Do you accept WALK-INS?
We do our best to seat walk-ins on a first come first served basis, but seating is limited due to reservations so wait times will vary. We generally recommend giving us a call before you head out, and, if we have room, we will do our best to pencil you in for a table!
Do you have OUTSIDE seating?
Yes, In the warm months we offer outside seating on our Patio on nights when weather permits! Under the twinkling lights, with a light breeze… this is the best seat in the house! Our Patio is 100% dependent on nice weather and there are no inside alternatives if weather threatens so we do not accept reservations days prior.

Outside seating is booked on a first-come, first-served basis and all tables must be confirmed day-of. Our Patio is available for private events our outdoor seats up to 22 people you can call the day of your event to book the patio if weather permits.
