Although the restaurant is on one level, the tables are very close together and it was difficult to manuever around them. I would call in advance and speak to the manager.

The tables are close together. However, you must make a reservation to dine, so when you call, just ask if they can accommodate a wheelchair. Personally, I think they can.
