Enjoy a night of being truly present with your guests and loved ones, and let Vancouver Private Dining take care of the rest.

The chef arrives 1-2 hours before your requested sit-down time, takes over your kitchen or event space for the evening, and creates a high-end restaurant experience in your home.

Your guests can hang out around the kitchen and chat with the chefs as they explain what they're doing while giving helpful cooking tips!

As dinner approaches and people are seated, the chef guides guests through a multi-course tasting menu, explaining each dish as it arrives and the accompanying wine pairings if chosen.

The table is cleared between courses, and the chef will leave after dessert. We always leave your kitchen cleaner than we found it.

Private Dining

You are the star of this show, and we want to help make your private dining party as unique as possible. Whether you choose to sit for a plated dinner or mingle for a standing cocktail style party with canapés and live chef stations, our team will provide an impressive demonstration of culinary flare with a charming personality to match.

We can work with you to curate your dream party or create a hands-off turnkey experience with partner decorators and sommeliers. There is no correct answer, except let's have fun.
