Porzia can accommodate up to 68 guests for a standing event or up to 52 for a seated meal. We have 52 seats in our restaurant and 14 at the bar. Tables can be pushed together to host 10 people at most on one table. Porzia offers a variety of dining services including prix fixe dinners, communal dining, wine paired tasting dinners and lunches. The restaurant is an ideal space for events including intimate and formal weddings, birthdays, launches, and holiday parties. Your event will be priced on the basis of a minimum food and beverage charge for the duration of the event. Please refer to the sample menu section for a better understanding of what we can do for you or contact management at any time and they will be happy to work with any specifications surrounding your event.

Larger parties over 10 people are placed on mandatory prix fixe chef menus on Friday and Saturdays.

Based on our room and reservation system and maximizing our dining room, windows for Friday and Saturday large table bookings over 10 people are at 6pm-9pm and at 9pm-11pm (end of night). 


large parties

Porzia is a full service a la carte restaurant offering a selection of options based on the freshest produce at the time. Although our menu does not specify vegetarian or dietary restriction options, items can be prepared to suit most requests without deviating far from our menu and our recipes. For larger parties and buy-outs, we offer the following options:

  1. A prix fixe menu with 3 -5 courses with options for each course. This service is set up so that each guest receives his/her own prepared individual plate. This service can be paired with wine, however drinks are not included in the price. Wine will be charged per bottle opened and organized beforehand. Please contact management to discuss details.
     
  2. A communal dining menu made up of 3 – 5 courses if you wish. Sharing plates are set up with each course for this type of service so that allows guests to participate in the actual dining experience. This service can be wine paired if you wish, however drinks are not included in the price. Wine will be charged per bottle opened and organized beforehand. Please contact management to discuss details.

LARGE PARTY POLICIES 

Please understand that Saturday and Friday nights are our busiest nights of the week, and to hold a large party larger than 20 people is considered a buy out. Our dining room fits only 52 people on the floor max excluding the bar, therefore, larger parties will utilize 50% of our dining room during a prime window. On weekends, Porzia turns its tables 2 – 3 times on a Saturday night, so larger events must substitute the 15+ guests we turn away. This service request therefore requires a couple of guarantees, which are inline with our large party/buy out policies.

buyout inquiries

Porzia is available for full restaurant buy-outs for evening or daytime events, including brunch. Although Porzia is happy to work with inquiries within an allocated budget; our pricing is based on a Food & Beverage minimums spend. This does not including tax 13% & gratuity 18%. Please view the following as a guideline:

Sunday-Wednesday: $3,500

Thursday: $4,000

Friday – Saturday $6,000

Lunch & Daytime Events: minimum $2,500

*Note lunch events are encouraged to finish by 6pm. Porzia opens up for regular dinner service for the public during days of operation at 6pm.

NON – BUY OUT LARGE PARTY INQUIRIES

Porzia is available to host large parties for up to 20 people on all operating days, during regular service, based on the availability of the space and the date requested. Please contact management to discuss options for your event.
