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

For Parties up to 10:  Please use Reservation Genie.

For Parties over 10: 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.

About the Chef’s Tasting:  The Chef’s Tasting is a 5-course menu for $38.00 per person and is mandatory for parties of 10 or more.

A Note on Cancellations: The Bento Box is an 22-seat restaurant with limited seating. Making a reservation now and cancelling later keeps those seats from being filled.  We understand things come up, so if cancellation is necessary, please do so as quickly as possible as a courtesy to The Bento Box.

Weekend Seatings: On weekends, The Bento Box offers two seatings -  6:00 PM and 8:30 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 8:30 PM.  Thank you for your understanding!

Birthday/Celebration Cake: We get this question a lot! If you are celebrating any occasion and would like to bring a cake (or any dessert from outside of The Bento Box) we welcome you to do so.

Special Dietary Requirements:  If you have any dietary restrictions whatsoever, please read our Vegan and Gluten Free Statement at the bottom of our Home Page.  We ask that you notify The Bento Box 24-hours in advance of your reservation.

For details please call 773.278.3932.   

Thank You!
