Help private dining room needed

books May 17, 2007 11:34 AM

Help !!! I am planning a retirement party for someone at work and his boss has requested we hold the dinner in a private dining room. I need to find one that does not require a deposit as well as one without a table minimum. The event also has to happen in the north end of Toronto.

Thanks for your help

    Herb's in North York has hosted our Christmas lunch without deposit and in a nice looking room upstairs.

      quince at Yonge and davisville has a room for private functions- don't know if that is north enough, and I don't know about the no deposit thing..

        FYI you are asking a lot! I don't know of any facility that is going to give you a private dining room without a deposit or AT LEAST a guaranteed of # guests.

          BOGIE ~~ Please note that this is a task passed down to me from work.... I am expected to deliver silks and furs but on a pauper's budget. I tried explaining that even the " birthday" room at McDonalds demands a deposit. :-)

            Believe me, I understand your dilemma only too well. My wife is an admin asst. for a mutual fund company and is often given such thankless and unrealistic tasks! I was only trying to convey that you will likely have a hard time finding such a place, given your parameters.

              I posted a similar situation a few days ago.
              I found a place that is very flexible.
              In so far as the "private" room , they have an area called The Library that will seat up to 40 people quite comfortably. It is what I would call semi-private.
              Place is the Granite Brewery at Mt. Pleasant and Eglinton.
              They have free parking and are wheelchair accessible.
              Nothing too fancy, reasonable prices.
              They have minimum 25 people on their web site, but they will "work" with smaller groups if you are up front with them.
              Photos available on their website.

                Thanks bogie. I really do feel up against a wall on this one. Oh well they will get what they get at the end of the day. I will find a lovely restaurant and have a lovely meal.
