As I recall, the restaurant would be wheelchair accessible. Not sure about the restroom. However, given that it’s California, I’d be shocked if it weren’t. Best to call and ask tho.

I would make reservations about 2 weeks ahead. Ask for a window seat, and make your reservations about 7 pm. Sometimes the staff plays music around 7, it is fun! Very good food, and service.
