Frequently Asked Questions
How can I secure my event reservation and how far in advance can I do so?
Groups choosing to book a Three Course Meal & Bocce Event, a Private Patio Buyout, or Full Facility Buyout can book up to one year in advance. A Court Party Event can book up to six weeks in advance.
Events are secured with a $125 non-refundable deposit. Private Patio deposits are $500 and Full Facility deposits are $1,000. Deposit can be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, cash or check. Regardless of deposit form a credit card number must be on file for all event reservations. Once a deposit is secured a contract will be released. All contracts must be returned the following business day after receipt in order to complete the reservation process. All reservations regardless of party size are booked on a first come first serve basis.
How far in advance do we need to preorder our food selections and submit final headcount?
All food preorders and final headcounts are due to your event planner approximately 10 business days prior to your event. Your personal date for the final headcount will be noted on your contract. Be prepared to inform your event coordinator which beverage service you would like to provide for your group as well.
Hosted Beverages – Any and all beverage added to the host’s bill.
Limited Hosted Beverages – Host narrows the selections they will provide.
Example: Just wine and beer, or Non-alcoholic only
Non-Hosted Beverages – All guests will pay for their own beverages
Limited Beverages – Host to pre-select beverages to be offered to their guests.
Example: Host selects wine for the group. Wine may be selected in advance or the day of the event from the server.
Drink Ticket – Each guest is given a pre-selected amount of drink tickets. Your event coordinator is given instruction on what the tickets can purchase and these beverages will be added to the host’s bill.
Set Dollar Amount – Host will spend (example- $100) in beverages then guests pay for their own.
Many corporations and government facilities require beverage charges to be on a separate check. Our wait staff is trained to help with these types of events.
