Thanks for your call!
We are flattered by your inquiry of our private dining facilities!
Together we can create a memorable event of exciting cuisine, quality service and a truly unique style.
On the following pages are several options for each course of the meal.
Please, call us with any questions you might have.
Booking the Event –Our kitchen is committed to high quality cuisine for these events. It is in this light that we ask you to work with us on the planning of your event within these guidelines which are designed to ensure the outstanding experience we hope to provide. If you have any special needs, please ask and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
We accommodate private dining in our upper level for groups of up to 75 people or our main floor room for groups of up to 50 people. Please contact us so that we may further discuss room availability and rental fees.
One week prior to the event we ask you to agree on a final menu. At that time we request a commitment to the number of guests, which will be the basis for menu preparation. In that light, accuracy is important as unexpected guests may affect the available amounts of menu items and absent guests will be reflected in the final total (based on an average per person price of your menu and a minimum of 90% of the confirmed number)
The host of a group of 16 or larger is asked to work with us, using the enclosed material,
to create a custom, personalized menu for the occasion. We will print your custom menu for your guests’ convenience.
Once the menu is determined, groups of larger than 25 are requested, but not required, to provide their guests actual selections one week prior to the event.
If you party is less than 15, if you prefer, your guests may order from the restaurant menu, rather than a custom menu.
We’d love to help you plan the Perfect Event!
If possible, we request, that you call us with any questions, between 9 am & 11 am OR between 2 pm & 5 pm.
Or, if you prefer, leave us a message with the best time to reach you!
Thank you again for requesting information on our private dining facilities!

When planning beverage service for your event, please consider whether you would prefer an “open” bar or “cash” bar. When you pre-determine that the bar will be “open” your guests’ beverages will be served and added to the bill. When a “cash” bar is arranged, your guests will be charged for their own beverage (regrettably, tabs cannot be accommodated).
Our bar provides a complete array of liquors, mixers, beers and liqueur from around the globe.
We also offer a reasonably priced selection of fine wines by the glass or bottle.
Wine or champagne can add a festive dimension to your event.
A toast can be arranged, or a bottle of wine or champagne can be placed on each table. This is a good strategy for a host who doesn’t want their guests to pay cash, but is also concerned that the bar tab, unchecked, may grow beyond a tolerable size.
Sweet Lorraine’s vision for beverage service includes equal attention to non-alcoholic specialties. Sparkling apple cider can bring enthusiastic “cheers” to a toast. Our own punch recipes with or without alcohol may also be arranged.
