Working in close partnership with the Missoula City-County Health Department, the Top Hat Restaurant has taken the following precautions to limit exposure to COVID-19

  • Cashless Transactions. The Top Hat will be moving towards a cashless environment, encouraging all customers to pay by card.
  • Social distancing between all tables. The restaurant will significantly reduce its maximum occupancy so that tables can be spaced at least 6 feet apart from each other.
  • Controlled customer flow. A hostess will manage the arrival and seating of customers with a designated waiting area near the front door.
  • Groups limited to ten patrons. While all tables will be spaced 6 feet apart, no single table will be allowed to have more than ten customers. This is in compliance with the Missoula Health Department guidance.
  • In-depth staff training. All staff will be required to participate in our COVID-19 training prior to working any shifts.
  • Disposable menus. The Top Hat will only offer disposable menus for our table service. All menus will be thrown out after each service.
  • Frequent server hand washing. Through discussions with the Missoula Health Department, we have determined that constant hand washing is more effective than wearing gloves. As a result, servers will be required to constantly wash their hands throughout their shift, but will not be wearing gloves.
  • Protective face masks for all staff. All kitchen, delivery and front of house staff will be required to wear protective face masks while on duty. Servers will be required to turn in their masks after each shift for our custodial staff to wash. This will ensure all face masks remain sterile and clean for each new shift.
  • Dedicated sanitization staff. Dedicated bussers will be responsible for clearing tables after each seating and will fully sanitize tables prior to the next seating.
  • Continuous sanitization. Top Hat staff will continue thorough and frequent sanitation practices in the dining room, bathrooms, server stations, and kitchen area during service hours.
  • Daily deep clean. Our in-house custodian staff will conduct a deep clean each day before service.
  • Strict compliance of all deliveries. The Top Hat will require all vendors and third-party partners to wear protective face masks when entering any portion of the Top Hat. Additionally, the Top Hat staff will wipe down and fully sanitize all food and beverage deliveries prior to those deliveries entering the kitchen.
  • Reduced menu. Dine-in service will include a slightly reduced food and drink menu from what was offered pre-COVID-19. The reduced menu size will accommodate more efficient kitchen operations and will give staff a safe space to work in.
  • Employee screenings. Staff members will have their temperature checked prior to each shift. Any employee that is experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19 has been told to not come to work. If symptoms are noticed by management upon their check-in procedure, that staff member will be immediately sent home.
