On Tuesday, January 14, between 8 a.m.-3 p.m., reservations for Spring 2020 open to the community.

This is the famous Phone Blitz that attempts to fill the entire semester’s tables in one day. Ione’s can prove to be “popular”, so booking early is recommended.

After the initial Phone Blitz day, for reservations call 920-996-2922 and be prepared to leave a detailed message.

All calls are added to the lottery list (based on Ione’s needs) for your specified preferred dates. Tables or chairs open at any time, and students appreciate this list.

Groups larger than six may not be able to share the same table.

Seating times vary between themes, so please refer to the descriptions on the printable pdf. above.

Cancellation Policy
If reservations need to be canceled, please find a replacement for your party, or cancel within a Minimum of 3 business days, or consider donating your food order to the less fortunate.

Ione’s Community Table
On Wednesdays at 11:15 a.m., we set a table for six people. Walk-ins, single diners, or others can join the table to meet new people, with or without a reservation. The Community Table began in honor of some special guests who were always inviting and gracious to others, and we think it is a fun tradition worth carrying on.

How to Find Ione's
Please use Entrance 10, which has handicapped parking and accessible restrooms for your convenience. 



California Dreamin'

California has long been the cutting edge in what’s new and what’s hot on the culinary stage. Our students invite you to experience their version of a page cut from the West coast playbill.

French Country Fare

As the students practice a bit of skill and showmanship, some selections on this menu will be partially or completely prepared at tableside and may include a flambé or flaming coffee service. Plan on a relaxing meal time as the French believe in somewhat longer meal service to fully appreciate the efforts of the Chef and the servers. As this is a controlled learning environment, we request that reservations are limited to one table per caller, with a maximum of four people. See PDF for seating times and dates.
