How can I book a reservation for one?
We offer one booking per night, Tuesday through Thursday, for single diners. Please email us at email@example.com to inquire about availability.
What is the dress code?
Although there is no official dress code, we do like to encourage our guests to dress up for the occasion. We kindly ask for no shorts, hats or athletic attire.
What is your corkage fee?
We welcome guests to bring up to two 750ml bottles (or one magnum) of their own wine. Our corkage fee is $75 per 750ml bottle ($150 for a magnum).
Can I bring children?
Children age 10 and older are welcome at Aska, although we do not have a children’s menu available and require all younger guests to have the same menu as the adults. While we have had younger diners enjoy the menu fully, the average duration of the meal and the amount of food may not be for most children. Because of the small, intimate nature of our dining room, we do not allow infants or children younger than 10.
Do you require reservations for the cellar bar or garden?
Our cellar bar and garden are open to guests on a walk-in basis, no reservation required. We offer a highly curated selection of wines, spirits, cocktails, and beer, as well as a small menu of shareable dishes available à la carte. Please note that the garden is open seasonally during the warmer months.

Do you offer gift certificates?
Where is Aska located?
Aska is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 47 South 5th Street between Kent & Wythe Avenues (closer to Wythe), across the street from the Williamsburg Bridge. The restaurant exterior is black.
Are you able to accommodate guests with food allergies?
Our kitchen will make every effort to plan accommodations for guests with severe food allergies provided that we have at least 72 hours notice to prepare. With proper notice, we also happily offer pescatarian, vegetarian, as well as vegan menu substitutions within our Aska Tasting Menu. When booking a reservation through Tock, please note all food allergies in as much detail as possible. If you are booking less than three days in advance, we kindly ask that you contact us prior to booking a reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the quality and availability of our ingredients, some of which are foraged, allergies or restrictions presented unexpectedly at the table may not be able to be accommodated.
Do you accommodate larger groups?
We accept bookings in our private dining room, adjacent to the garden and main dining room, for parties of 4 to 8 guests. When booked for a private event, our cellar lounge accommodates seated parties of up to 16 guests, or up to 40 guests for cocktails. For all private event inquiries, including the option of a full restaurant buyout or offsite event, please email us at email@example.com.
Do you charge for reservations in advance?
All reservations require a non-refundable, $95 per guest deposit charged immediately to the credit card entered during the booking process. Any additional purchases made while at the restaurant will be charged that same evening.
Can I cancel a reservation I purchased?
All sales are final and non-refundable. Refunds cannot be made for cancellations due to medical, family, or business emergencies or other unexpected events. For out-of-town visitors, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance. If you are unable to join us on the date and time of your reservation, you may transfer or gift your reservation through your user profile on Tock or you may reschedule with at least 72 hours notice to a date and time currently open for reservations. No-show reservations will be charged the full menu price per person.
Reservation deposits apply per person. If you wish to reduce the size of your reservation, only the deposit for the number of guests present at the time of the reservation will be applied to the check.
How far in advance can I book a reservation?
We accept reservations up to two months in advance. We open our books for reservations on the first day of each month for the following month. If your desired date is unavailable, we encourage you to join our waitlist via Tock. Please note that reservations for parties of 3 or more typically have greater availability than do parties of 2.
