We use Reservation Genie to manage online reservations. Please keep these details in mind when booking:

For Parties up to 6:  Please use Reservation Genie.

For Parties over 6: Please email us at or call us directly at 773.278.3932. The Chef’s Tasting Menu is mandatory for parties of 10 or more.  This creates a better, more efficient dining experience for you and your party.

Weekend Seatings: On weekends, The Bento Box offers two seatings -  6:00 PM and 8:00 PM.  Both times are fully booked by the weekend, so if your seating is at 6:00 PM, your table needs to be available by 8:00 PM.  Thank you for your understanding! 

Special Dietary Requirements: Please remember that we are a meat and seafood-centric restaurant and our food has trace amounts of fish sauce, shrimp paste (made in house) and oyster sauce, meaning nothing is truly vegan or shellfish- free. While we make our best effort to work around this for individuals who have certain food intolerances it might preclude some from participating in the tasting in which case we suggest ordering from the a la carte menu.

Thank You!
