On performance nights, guests can host a festive gathering of up to 90 people before a show for a delectable dining experience and on non-performance nights guests can utilize the entire dining room for up to 400 people for cocktails or 250 for dinner. The grand dining room can be transformed into an elegant setting for weddings, intimate receptions, bar and bat mitzvahs, unforgettable corporate events, and much more.

Smaller parties can enjoy a more personal setting in the Private Dining Room, which can seat 30 for dinner and up to 40 for a cocktail reception. Set off from the Roof Terrace Restaurant's grand dining room by mahogany wood doors with cream colored paneling, the private dining room features a warm palette that is perfect for an intimate pre-theater dining experience.
