The easiest way to land a dinner reservation at The Dining Room at Clifton Inn is by calling the restaurant directly. Walk-ins are accepted, but discouraged, since it means you may miss out on a choice table. Dinner at the chef’s table or in the wine cellar is by reservation only. Bookings can be made online at OpenTable.com. The media-savvy Clifton Inn also has been known to take reservations over both Facebook and Twitter.
Do make reservations at the Charlottesville restaurant early for holidays, wine dinners and specials events, as seating is limited and fills up quickly. For a quiet evening, the best time to dine at The Dining Room is during the beginning of the week, except for of June, when the property may be booked out for weddings.
