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, The Salon North, The Salon South and The Chef’s Table. The Cafe offers a more casual setting for informal gatherings, and 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.

Please contact Private Dining Director Senta Connolly and her team via the email address or phone number below to plan your next event.

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.


Tucked in the back corner of the restaurant, featuring two walls of windows, dark wood, and Greco-Roman ceiling details, this private space can accommodate up to 30 seated guests and up to 50 guests for a standing reception.


Featuring dark wood, and Greco-Roman ceiling details (similar to The Salon North), this private space can accommodate up to 50 seated guests and up to 70 guests for a standing reception.


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.


Set inside the bustling kitchen, this private table for four offers a unique view of our 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.


From a casual meeting at adjacent high top tables to a cordoned off area for a more formal reception, we can accommodate groups of 8 to 80 guests year round in our café area and in the warmer months, al fresco on our adjacent patio.  The areas are generally first come first served seating, but groups are welcome to reserve in advance through our events department.

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.
