Additional Information

While we do not impose a room charge for our private spaces, we do require a food & beverage minimum to be met. Room minimums are simply based on seasonal demand as well as the specific date and time of the event. These minimum figures simply represent the required food & beverage expenditures to be met, excluding tax and service charges. * An 9.63% sales tax and a 20% service/gratuity charge will be added to all private events. Restaurant buyouts are also available at an additional fee. To confirm a group reservation, a 40% non-refundable deposit is required on all private dining events. An expected attendance must be received no later than 72 working hours (M-F) prior to the scheduled event via email. Once provided, the guest count can increase but not decrease, and the established room minimums cannot be lowered due to a reduced headcount. After receiving a final headcount figure, Park & Howard Bistro is not responsible for guests unable to attend the event & credits cannot be issued for non-attendees or unmet minimums, once a specific space has been confirmed. This figure must be equal to or at least be 90% of the original count noted on the event agreement.

For private dining group parties, all wine & prix-fix menu orders should be received by the restaurant no less than 2 weeks prior to an event, in order to ensure a specific wine & menu. This is essential for ordering & preparing the menu and in providing certain wine selections. Specific vintages may vary based on availability. We do reserve the right to change room spaces if the party size should change. .

From Jan. thru Sept., any events cancelled less than 4 weeks prior to the event date are subject to a cancellation fee of fifty percent (50 %) of the total estimated cost. Any cancellations within 1-week prior to an event, the food & beverage minimum plus applicable tax & gratuity will be charged. A $50 cancellation/set-up fee is charged for all cancelled events. From Oct. thru Dec., cancellations beyond 60 days, full deposit will credit for future event – within 60 days, full deposit will be forfeited and within 30 days, the food & beverage minimum plus applicable tax & gratuity will be charged. For all off-site catered events, cancellations made within 2 weeks of the event will forfeit the full deposit and require payment for the contracted F & B plus applicable tax & gratuity. Deposits are non-refundable for all events. Plan your next event with Park & Howard Bistro!
