Private Event Buyouts

Our restaurant is currently not offering reservations, except for whole dining room buyouts arranged in advance (take out is available as well). Please note that take out order pick ups will not interfere with the event. Your party will enjoy the restaurant space exclusively, with one dedicated server.  We will accommodate parties up to 12 people (no minimum head count) to allow the server enough space to keep the proper distance. For the future, when social distancing restrictions are be lifted, our normal capacity is up to 30 people seated, and up to 40 for standing room only. Safety and health is our priority – in order to protect our employees, our business and our guests we are not open for regular dine in service. Due to COVID our service style is also less formal to minimize the server’s contact with the guests. Our team is vaccinated and practicing social distancing and wearing masks in and out of work, therefore we respectfully ask that your party is composed of close family members and friends that you trust as well. 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 will be issued as Maple Ave Restaurant gift card (to be used on take out 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

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 10 people will be seated at 2 separate tables (our dining room is 200 square feet therefore tables will be still in proximity to each other). Parties up to 10 will share one table.

Please read the terms above before submitting a request for a buy out. We appreciate it!

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