Private Dining

We offer private dining options to accommodate a variety of special events, from an intimate party of four to a gala of five hundred guests. Our exceptional cuisine, graceful service, and central location make Oceana the ideal destination for business functions and personal celebrations alike.

Our unique settings include The Wine Room, The Grand Salon, and The Chef’s Table. The Park at Oceana provides an outdoor alternative on the weekends during the warmer months. Our staff can customize cocktail events in our cafe and bar areas; and the entire restaurant is also available for weddings and larger private affairs.

Private Dining Rooms


Named for its floor-to-ceiling display of Oceana’s magnificent wine selection, this room provides a dramatic backdrop for events with up to 18 guests. Decorative, etched glass walls admit the natural light and ambience of the main dining room while ensuring complete privacy.


This airy space offers the most variety of configurations, with a maximum accommodation of 80 guests seated or 120 guests standing. The Grand Salon can be divided into two separate rooms by a substantial wood-paneled wall that slides out of view when not in use. As separate rooms, Salon North can accommodate a maximum of 30 seated guests, and Salon South a maximum of 50. Each room includes a door leading to The Park, Oceana’s outdoor area, presenting additional space for your event in warmer weather, available evenings only after 7pm and all day on weekends.


Set inside the bustling kitchen, this private table for four offers a unique view of Executive Chef Ben Pollinger and his team in action. Guests enjoy an intimate dining experience with a behind-the-scenes look at the care and craftsmanship that go into the preparation of our dishes. Seasonal tasting menus can be arranged for your pleasure.


In the warmer months, The Park at Oceana offers an outdoor venue for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres when used in conjunction with one of our private Salons. The space is only accessible on the weekends, and after 7pm on weekdays.

Under the guidance of  Senta Connolly, Director of Private Dining, our event staff can assist with planning every detail for the most elegant and memorable celebration. Please contact Senta, and her team, via the email address or phone number below to plan your next event.
