Our State Room seats 10 guests, and is perfect for intimate dinner parties.

The Federal Room seats up to 35 guests for seated events, and 50 people for cocktail receptions.

The Main Dining Room is usually for à la carte reservations. However, for private events, this room can be separated from the rest of our dining room and become its own private space. This space has a private entrance and can seat up to 40 guests for dinner. This space can also be combined with the State Room to seat up to 50 guests. For cocktail receptions, the Main Dining Room can service up to 40 people or 50 people when combined with the State Room.

The Cafe is a semi-private space perfect for a seated meal or standing cocktail reception - for the entire evening or for a cocktail hour prior to dinner in one of our private rooms. This space can accommodate up to 29 people for a seated meal and up to 35 for a standing reception.

If a private room is not necessary, we have banquette tables within the dining room that can seat up to 16 guests.

We are available for buyout events, and can host up to 180 guests for a seated meal or a standing reception.
