Private Dining & Events
The French Laundry is available for private parties of many sizes, and our dedicated private dining team is on hand to assist in planning your event for parties of 8-14 guests. We offer several unique settings for your event, and everything from menu selection to wine pairings, flower arrangements and parting gifts can be custom-designed for a most memorable occasion.
Our menus are designed to include seasonal ingredients, classic French Laundry dishes and, of course, your preferences. We ask that you make us aware of any dietary restrictions or food allergies in your party as soon as possible so we may accommodate your guests’ needs.
To accompany your meal we offer an extensive selection of fine wines from around the world. Our wine list is available for your review, and our sommeliers are on hand to guide you through the choices and assist you with developing a wine-pairing program for your event. We do not allow corkage in our private dining rooms and outside wines are not permitted.
For parties of 8-12 guests we have two private dining rooms to choose from. The first is located within the main restaurant, overlooking the culinary gardens on the second level of the building. We also offer The Board Room, our newest private dining space located in the annex building and featuring a custom dining table made from a 140-year-old tree. The Board Room is located on the ground level and adjacent to our newly remodeled courtyard.
While our courtyard is temporarily closed due to construction, it is ideal for up to 14 guests and is available for private dinners during the summer season. This exclusive area features al fresco dining surrounded by vineyards and our culinary garden. We look forward to offering this distinct outdoor space starting June 1st.
For a wedding reception, social affair or corporate event, we offer the possibility of exclusive use of the restaurant. Here, we can accommodate up to sixty guests and provide the full attention of our entire staff.
If you have your own location in mind, we can bring The French Laundry experience to you. Members from our full-time kitchen and dining room staff will bring the very same elements that we use in the restaurant to your event, to create a memorable meal for you and your guests.
Reservations for The French Laundry private dining rooms can be made exclusively on our website for all dates through August 31, 2017. We will release two months of reservations on the first day of every odd-numbered month. The next release will occur on July 1st for dates between September 1st and October 31st.
