GROUPS: COCKTAIL PARTIES

The upstairs Gallery Dining Room is ideally suited for functions of up to 40 people: for birthday and retirement parties, Christmas or holiday dinners, Stampede breakfasts, stags/stagettes, wedding rehearsal dinners and small wedding receptions. Private room bookings subject to availability. There is no separate room charge, but minimum food and beverage purchases are sometimes required to book the room privately at times when we expect to be full.

Stand-up cocktail-style service is also available. A selection of finger foods is specified, or alternatively, we can suggest a selection for you based on your budget and style of gathering. We would develop the budget for a cocktail-style function based on the following:

  • Food selection
  • Beverage style (open bar or limited selection)
  • Number of invitees
  • Duration of the event

Typically food for about half the expected number of attendees will be provided at the outset and replenished as consumed, and are offered on trays as well as arranged on side tables. Beverages can either be ordered at the bar or servers can take orders from the floor.

Food and beverages are charged as served. Generally consumption is higher with full service of food and beverages. A typical budget for a 2 to 3-hour evening function is $15 to $30 per person for food, and an average of two drinks per person or 12 in beverages. tax and gratuity is additional.

The Embarcadero

The widest selection of oysters in the city....this causal restaurant feels like a pub but tastes like fine dining. Named after the waterfront district in San Francisco, Embarcadero means "wharf" or "landing place" in Spanish. With the widest selection of oysters in the city, we feature at least six varieties of northern Atlantic and Pacific fresh oysters on the half shell.
