We arrived at Hartwood about 10 minutes past 2 pm on Friday and there was already a line. If your party is less than 8 you need to make reservations in person. They start accepting reservations promptly at 3 pm. The wait wasn’t bad, if you’re lucky to be in the front you can sit on the stone wall that borders the restaurant otherwise you will be stuck standing. There are boutique shops around Hartwood. If you’re waiting with friends you can take turns checking them out. We were given the option between 5:30 pm or 8:30 pm for dinner reservations for our party of 4 and we decided to go with the earlier reservations hoping to eat while it was still light out and take photos.
