Seating & Booking

Reservations

Reservations are accepted Monday through Friday only for parties of 8 guests or more. Special accommodations may be made on a case-by-case basis for parties of 30 or more guests on weekdays only. Please email info@hudson-cafe.com for booking or more information.

We do not accept any reservations on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. On these days, we are walk-in only. Please be advised that from time to time, reservations may be unavailable or fill up long in advance on days that certain events are happening in the city, such as Opening Day, etc., though we will always accept walk-in parties for those days.

Seating and Wait Times

Guests can typically expect to wait for a table on weekends or holidays. We are much quieter during the work week, but you may see a short wait between 11 AM – 1 PM or when special events are occurring around us in the city.

Due to the fluctuating nature of wait time estimates, quoted wait-times are not guaranteed, though we try to be as accurate as possible.

Our hosting platform is powered by Yelp, so upon providing your name and contact number to our host, you will receive a confirmation text with a link to the waiting list so you can track your party’s progress in line. When your table is available, you will be texted to return to the restaurant within ten minutes to be seated.

Waitlist Remote Check-In

While we do not take call-ahead bookings over the phone at this time, you may get into line remotely using the widget below. This option may be unavailable at times during holidays or special events.

While this is not a reservation, it does reduce your waiting time in the restaurant while allowing the capability to track your place in line in real-time. While the quoted waiting time is typically accurate, please be advised it is only an estimate, not a guarantee.

Please be advised that this option is only available for parties of 6 guests or less. Parties that sign into the waitlist with more than 6 guests may or may not be honored at our discretion and will likely wait longer than what is quoted.

We suggest factoring in waiting time into your visit to the city, and using the time as an opportunity to wander around downtown, enjoying the beauty of Detroit!
