How long does the meal last?
It generally takes about two hours to enjoy Dinner with Dres.
What is the date of the next dinner?
Usually, dinners are planned for the last Thursday of each month. There is a lot of variables in our scheduling, so giving an exact date more than a month in advance would be difficult.
Do you serve wine?
We have a wine sponsor that will be offering a complimentary wine pairing with dinner to all of our guests. We do not sell wine, beer or any alcoholic beverages.
Can I bring my own wine/beer/alcohol?
No. We are not a BYOB operation.
Are all of your events ticketed?
Yes. Dinner with Dres events are all ticketed, prix fixe events.
Do you have vegetarian / vegan / gluten-free options?
We apologize, but for now, we do not offer vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options, unless stated on our menu. In the future, we will plan vegetarian and vegan menus and will notify you if you wish. Please let us know where to send you this notification on our mailing list sign up.
How do I get the address?
The exact location of Dinner with Dres will be sent to you via email the night before your reservation along with parking tips and other directions. If you need to figure out travel times and logistics sooner than the day of your reservation, please plan on arriving at around 7:00 pm to the downtown Whole Foods at: 788 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
Dinner with Dres is located within a very short walk from there.
Do you accommodate dietary restrictions?
We apologize, but for now, we will not be able to accommodate any dietary restrictions or preferences. Our menu is served as described on our menu page.
What's included in the price?
Food and service are included. Food will be at a minimum of 8 dishes, which includes small bites, appetizers, main course, and dessert. Although we do not sell any liquor or alcoholic beverages, we have a wine sponsor that will be offering a complimentary wine pairing with dinner.
Do you do private dinners?
Yes. Besides being a pop-up restaurant, we also cater private events and private dinners. Please fill out the Private Event Request on the reservation page on our Tock profile.
Why do you use pre-paid reservations instead of regular reservations?
Our pop up will only host up to 14 guests, and we want to create an intimate environment for our guests. Pre-paid reservations allow us to anticipate who is coming and give our guests an all-encompassing experience at the best price possible.
Can I get a refund once purchased? Can I exchange my reservation for a different night?
Just as with attending a sporting event, concert or the theater, all sales are final. We cannot cancel your reservation or reschedule it for another night. If you cannot come, we recommend that you transfer your reservation to someone else.
Please note, however, that selling reservations for greater than face value may be illegal in your area and we certainly frown upon that. Anyone who purchases a reservation from another patron should take care to ensure that they have a received a formal transfer of the reservation through our ticketing processor, Tock. Any reservations purchased on the secondary market are at the purchaser’s risk. We cannot accept responsibility for forgeries or misrepresentations.
Is parking available?
There is 24-hour self-parking right across the street.
Do you have a dress code?
We do not have a dress code. Guests tend to dress business casual, but we encourage you to come as you are.
What days are you open for service?
We offer dinner service one day out of the month, for now.
Can I book all the seats?
Tickets can be purchased for groups of up to 6 guests. For information regarding a private seating of 8 guests or more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and information.
What happens if I arrive late?
As a communal experience, we start dinner promptly at the scheduled time and you may miss courses if you are late. Please plan on arriving 15 - 20 minutes early. This will give you ample time to settle in and mingle with other guests before dinner starts.
