Private Event Buyouts

During a buy out, your party will enjoy the restaurant space exclusively, with a dedicated server. Currently  we will accommodate parties up to 28 people (no minimum head count). Our team is vaccinated and wearing masks when required, therefore we respectfully ask that your party is composed of family members and friends that are vaccinated as well, when possible. Transparency is key – we trust you to keep us safe, and we will do our best to return the favor. Thank you for this opportunity of partnership!

Food and beverage spending minimum includes soft and alcoholic drinks and reflects minimum charge at the end of event (plus rental fee (if applicable), tax and gratuity). To book the entire restaurant we will agree that your party commits to spending a set minimum dollar amount for food and beverages, therefore F&B minimum stands even if the amount of people served is less than planned. Automatic gratuity (20%) will be applied to the total F&B amount. Tax (9%) is applied to the total before tip. A $300 deposit is required to save the date. Deposit amount will be discounted from the total bill. In the event of cancellation, deposit is non refundable, and it will be issued as Maple Ave Restaurant gift card (to be used on take out, dine-in, or event at a later date). We kindly request for one form of payment at the end of event. Our event duration policy is flexible.

Food and Drinks

For parties of 10 or more we ask that you pre-order from the agreed menu in advance for each guest. Smaller parties will enjoy a pre-set food menu and can make the choices day of. Soft and alcoholic beverages are served a la carte. Wine is charged by the bottle.

Types of Events

In the past we’ve hosted holiday parties, staff appreciation, baby shower, bridal shower, birthday and anniversary celebrations, wedding, wedding rehearsal, christening, graduation parties, corporate meetings, etc. And in current times, maybe just a nice private dinner for two. Each event is different (as are we), we’re happy to accommodate.

Decor and Dining Room Set Up

To make your event memorable, we encourage you to bring table setting items (including tablecloths, runners, votives, flower arrangements, etc). When planning please consider our cozy space limitations (~200 sq ft) and please no confetti or glitter.

We do not provide AV equipment, however there are outlets available – you’re welcome to provide your own.

Parties of more than 18 people will be seated at 2 separate tables (our dining room is compact, therefore tables will be still in proximity to each other). Parties up to 18 will share one long table.




Please read the terms before submitting a request for a buy out. By submitting this form you agree to the terms above.

If you have additional questions, please give us a call at (703) 319-2177 during our business hours to schedule a call back appointment. We are not able to take on the spot calls about private events at this time.

If you could briefly describe the event, we will have a better idea of how best to accommodate your party.
