Seated Dinner

Seated Dinners allow you to enjoy your guests.

Seated dinners are a specialty. From an intimate dinner for two to a family gathering for 20...  all in the privacy and comfort of YOUR home! But it’s more than your home for an evening – it’s an elegant five-star restaurant!

There are many possibilities for seated dinners, and we can tailor the event to your exact specifications. Or if you aren’t sure of exactly what you want, we can help you plan the ultimate dinner party.  Formal, themed, casual… it’s all good.

A formal seated dinner usually starts with hors d'oeuvres and beverages as the guests arrive. That is followed by everyone sitting down to a pre-set 1st course, or perhaps a salad, or maybe both. When finished, the plates are cleared and the main dish is served. After the main course comes the dessert (of course!)

The entire time, from prep to cleanup, you don’t have to lift a finger. Enjoy your guests and we’ll happily handle everything. Just contact us, and we’ll do the rest.
