What's The capacity of the private room?
22 guests for a sit-down dinner, or up to 40 for a cocktail reception. If the weather is good enough, a small private patio is also available.
How is the room set up?
We set up your function with candles, white linens and appropriate place settings. If you've selected a reception format, we put a few tables and chairs around the perimeter of the room. There's a private washroom and a private off-the-patio entrance, or you can choose the "New York" entrance through the kitchen and feel like a gangster.
How do I choose a menu?
Together we can create a custom menu, or you may choose from our prix-fixe group menus. These menus are based on seasonal fresh market availabilities and can be mixed and matched to suit your requirements. We'll be happy to recommend beer pairings for each of your courses or food selections, because that's kind of what we love to do. Of course, we also offer wines, spirits and other beverages. Groups of 14 or less have the option of ordering à la carte.
Is there a charge for the room?
No. However, to book the Private Room there is a minimum spend requirement of $350 for a luncheon/brunch, and $600 for dinner/evening functions. The minimum spend is exclusive of an 18% automatic gratuity and 13% tax.
When do I have to confirm my number of guests in attendance?
A final guest count is due 2 business days prior to the event. This is the minimum number of guests for which you will be billed. If no guarantee is received we will use the number of guests originally contracted for when the reservation was made, or the number of guests in attendance, whichever is greater.
What happens if my guest count falls below the guarantee on the day of the event?
For all prix-fixe events where special items need to be ordered in, should the actual number of guests fall below the guarantee you will be charged $25 per head for the number of guests guaranteed but not in attendance
How do I stay within my budget?
We will keep you apprised of your total bill at either time intervals, or at dollar amounts; as decided by you.
Can I hold a dinner or lunch meeting in the private room?
Absolutely. We've got a really big TV back there and we'll be happy to assist you to arrange for any audio visual equipment needs.
What items do we need to supply?
If designated seating is required please supply your own place cards. We'll print personalized group menus for all functions that are not à la carte.
How far in advance do we need to book?
Bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
What time of day can we have our function?
Lunch functions can be booked from 12:30-4:00pm, brunch from 11:00am-4:00pm, and dinner functions can begin anytime after 5:00pm.
How are payments made?
One check will be presented at the end of your function and final payment is due upon the completion of your event. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Debit. Arrangements for separate billing can be made in advance.
