Our Philosophy on Gratuities is more the merrier!!! Not because we are greedy but because we want to be able to give back to our community.
When you give a gratuity to our team, 30% is donated to our Not-For-Profit Partners, 50% stays with your outstanding server and 20% is shared to the Creative Culinary Team. Together, we have an opportunity to make an impact in our community, one dish at a time. To see all of the not-for-profits we support, click here.
