Creative, local, intimate. 

Little Sparrow boasts an eclectic, seasonal menu created by Executive Chef Eric Samaniego, who incorporates a fresh take on flavors from around the world, whose common thread is a thoughtful focus on local ingredients. Every plate achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour — even dessert. Nightly dinner and Sunday brunch are served in a convivial neighborhood setting, comprised of high ceilings, exposed ducts, bistro chairs, inviting banquettes with touches of artwork and colorful accents throughout.

Reservations


Dinner & Cocktails

Tuesday - Saturday; 5:00pm - late.

Dinner Reservations

Always try to reserve online first; it is immediate and searches all available tables.

Because we are generally open at night, the phones aren't usually answered until early afternoon.

Sunday Brunch

10:00am - 3:00pm.

We no longer take brunch reservations. Why? Most people who have brunch with us don't make reservations, so this makes it a lot easier for everyone.

Large groups (8 or more guests), may call to make brunch reservations.

Venue

Little Sparrow is a small neighborhood bistro with limited seating. Reservations are assigned tables in the dining room and the bar-room. Let us know if you have a preference.

Getting In

Online reservations are available for up to 10 guests; for larger groups and private parties, please contact us by phone or email. We set aside some tables for walk-ins. Online reservations are available up to 30 days in advance.

Tardiness

If you know you cannot make your reservation please cancel it so the table becomes available for someone else.

If you are very late, there is a good chance we'll have given your table to a walk-in and you will get the next available.
