Dinner Reservations (6pm–10pm)
All reservations between 6pm and 10pm are “dinner & a show” reservations. Non-dining guests will be seated at the bar. The seating time, not the show time, is the time of your reservation.
Seating & Late Arrivals
Due to the size of the venue and performance schedule, we cannot guarantee a grace period for your reservation. You risk losing your place if you arrive later than your seating time.
Seating is based upon arrival, and is at the discretion of the management. Parties of one will be seated at the bar. Reservations at Smoke are good for one set only. Staying for more than one set is subject to availability and additional music charges and minimums may apply.
Please be sure to re-confirm all advance reservations by calling Smoke the day of your reservation. (Ticket holders do not need to re-confirm)

The great alto saxophonist Bobby Watson first gained fame with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers during a prolific period in the late ‘70s when he also served as the group’s music director. Along the way he has been a vital artistic voice working with Max Roach, Louis Hayes, George Coleman, Sam Rivers, Branford and Wynton Marsalis as well as vocalists like Joe Williams, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Better Carter, and Carmen Lundy. He also formed his own influential band, Horizon, which is considered one of the essential small groups of the past 30 years. All About Jazz describes Watson as playing “very intensely, echoing those powerful Kansas City sounds while moving forward through all the bebop and mainstream trends while maintaining his own consistent style,” and the Financial Times states, “He lets notes linger seductively before darting off at warm and romantic angles, and his high-note riffs and speedy lines are steeped in the blues and serve an over-arching purpose.”
Please be aware that if you intend to make a Friday reservation for Restaurant Week you also have to purchase tickets for the show.
