How Can We Help You?
We have generally open tasting appointments on Wednesdays – Fridays at 12pm, 1pm and 3:30pm. If you cannot schedule in one of these timeframes, let us know and we will arrange to host you at a different time. Note there may be costs associated with booking appointments outside our allocated Menu Tasting time slots.
We typically reserve 1 hour for tastings and can usually get everything handled in that timeframe. Please arrive to your appointment promptly. Staffing costs may be added to your final bill in the event you are late or need to stay longer than the booked 1 hour.
Tastings generally cost between $300 and $500 per person, depending on the final menu selection. Tastings are complimentary for up to 2 guests with bookings that exceed $12,500. The cost of the tasting will be discounted off your final bill. Additional guests can be added to the tasting with five days prior notice.
