How to find a private dining restaurant

Surf the internet – there are a number of websites that list private dining restaurants in major cities throughout the United States. Do a search and pull up a list of local restaurants that offer private dining. They will usually have an individual website that will give you a good idea of what the restaurant looks like, how many guests they can seat and what is in the many. Many of the websites also have virtual tours so that you can get a good feel for the ambience of the venue.

Ask around – don’t just ask friends and family, stop by at some of the local business and ask them where they hold corporate dinners. Visit your local chamber of commerce and see where they hold their formal events.

Visit the restaurant – once you have picked out one or two favorites, pay the restaurant a visit. It’s always a good idea to meet with the staff and to sample some of the food before you agree to book your event there.

Check the menu – most private dining restaurants offer a three course meal with a choice of three or four different entrees. This means that all your guests should be able to find something they like on the menu.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate – if handle respectfully, most restaurants will be prepared to negotiate rather than turn a client’s booking away.

Don’t skip the details – just because you have the menu handled don’t forget the finer details such as handicapped access, parking and local taxi services.
