Our Terms and COnditions of Service


1. A 10% service surcharge applies on Sundays and Public Holidays.

2. A 5% gratuity applies to large groups (15+ people) reservations as a courtesy to our staff.

3. Reservations between 5 PM and 8 PM have a standard 2-hour maximum seating time.

4. Although we love to accommodate most request, we do not split bills. We strongly recommend you have cash money with you. If that is not the case, there are several ATM's conveniently installed in the area.

5. To secure a reservation, Macchiato requires a credit or debit card on file. Your card will not be charged any deposit upon reservation, however, failure to cancel without at least 24 hours notice, no shows or reductions of the guest list by more than five people may incur in the charge of a fee up to the full per-person cost of the menu.

5.1 During Event & Festivity Times* our cancellation notice extends to 72 hours. Although charging for a cancellation is something we dislike doing and rarely enforce, a last minute large group cancellation causes a great loss in business, both in missed sales and empty tables. We encourage our customers to communicate to us any changes to their plans as soon as possible to avoid unpleasant situations.

6. All cake orders need be placed no less than 72 hours prior the pick up date to give our pastry chef time enough time to bake your cake.

7. All refunds for cake order cancellations will depend on whether or not the product has already been wholly or partially prepared.

8. Macchiato is a 250-seat venue with large spaces, windows and, on occasions, live music. When booking, let us know if you need a table in a quieter area. Although we are happy to assign a quieter table, we cannot guarantee silence in our open-plan restaurant.
