FAQ

Proof of full COVID vaccination or negative PCR test is currently required for entry at Tomo. This decision was made with staff safety and community solidarity in mind and follows King County’s mandate. We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and will make adjustments to our policy accordingly. A list of upcoming free and low cost vaccination clinics in King County can be found here.

Upon arrival we will require proof that you completed your vaccination at least 14 days prior to your reservation. Proof of vaccination must match a valid ID. We will accept your vaccination card or a photo of your vaccination card.

We require all guests to wear masks when inside of the restaurant and not actively eating or drinking. Please wear your mask when engaging with staff and taking trips to the washroom.

We don’t have one. But if you have a question this FAQ page doesn’t answer—or if you’re just running late!—drop us an email at info@tomoseattle.com.

We’re a reservations–only restaurant—with the exception of our 6–seat bar, which is first come, first served.

Reservations go live on the 1st of each month for the following month at 10 am PST. January 2022 bookings become available December 1. 


Our reservations (through Tock) require a per–guest, non–refundable deposit. We’re a small restaurant, and planning efficiently for your experience as well as paying a fair wage to our team are among our top priorities.
︎︎︎ For lunch reservations, the deposit is $25 per guest.
︎︎︎ For dinner reservations, it’s $78 per guest, plus a 20% service charge and applicable tax.
︎︎︎ This prepaid deposit will be deducted from your final bill. 

Reservations must be cancelled at least 4 calendar days in advance of your reservation date in order to receive a full refund.

Reservations cancelled fewer than 4 days prior to your reservation date are nonrefundable.

All reservations are fully transferable. You can give your reservation to another party of the same size. 

A 20% service charge will be applied to all food and beverage consumed at Tomo and is fully retained by the restaurant. Additional gratuity is not expected. 

Simply put, we carry the wines we love to drink with our friends. Each wine on our list is made in small quantities by dedicated, responsible, fundamentally cool people; and each and every one was chosen to uniquely complement our food.

That said, if you’d like to bring your own wine to Tomo, please note there is a corkage fee of $50 per 750ml bottle ($75 per magnum). We ask that you limit the number of bottles you bring to 2 per reservation. Corkage is limited to bottles that are not currently on our wine list. 

Gift cards are available for purchase here.

Please notify us in advance if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions via the ‘Notes’ section on Tock when booking your reservation. We will do our best to accommodate your needs. Same day requests may not be possible due to availability of ingredients. 

We don’t believe in dress codes. We do, however, encourage you to wear clothes. 

We love children, but don’t offer a kids’ menu. Children at dinner will be charged the full price of our set menu. If the children in your party are adventurous eaters, we look forward to serving them. 

We encourage the use of public transportation and ride share apps. White Center also offers ample, free street parking along 16th Avenue in front of the restaurant and on the adjacent streets. 

Tomo is also available for buyouts and offsite private events. Message party@tomoseattle.com

We are not affiliated with any other restaurant called Tomo but there are many!
