The Embarcadero is available for booking private parties. A full range of a/v and presentation equipment is available. Customized menus can be used – just choose four or five entree selections in the desired price range, and we can draw up a menu for your function complete with company name and event.

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.

Custom menus for dinners and luncheons have two advantages. The food arrives faster as the selections can be anticipated in advance, and the cost is within a desired budget – useful if one person or company is hosting, due to the wide range of menu prices.


Generally, the courses are available as follows:

  • Cocktail appetizers in a variety selected beforehand in quantities from $6 to $10 per person
  • Starter course (usually soup or salad),
  • Entree from a list of 4 or 5 choices pre-selected from the menu,
  • Dessert either pre-selected options or a variety platter.

Guests would be presented with a customized, half-page menu with company name and event and list of choices. The cost will depend on items selected. Prices are per menu prices, and are charged as ordered.

We can adjust portions and selections to have fixed per-person prices for non-hosted events if necessary. For group bookings, items other than those on the menu can be arranged, subject to availability of product and sufficient notice. Including starter, main course and dessert options.

The Embarcadero

The widest selection of oysters in the city....this casual 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.
