Having an event in a restaurant comes with many benefits. They are highly flexible event spaces where you can organize any affair in honor of your special occasion without needing to worry about any food preparation, decoration, and clean-up afterward (we think the first is the best one). So, it’s no wonder so many San Franciscans love to celebrate their special life moments in the best restaurants in town! To give you an idea of the sorts of occasions you may wish to celebrate in a restaurant, we’ve listed some below.
Birthday - Birthdays make everyone feel special, don't they? It’s a common sight to see families gathering together in a restaurant and celebrating by having a truly delicious meal. Why not spoil yourself or your dearest person by chatting and laughing over a feast as you catch up and spend some quality time together? It sounds like having a birthday dinner at a restaurant could be a perfect match! Why not check it out for yourself and book a space for any upcoming birthday? On our website, you will have plenty of restaurants to choose from for a unique birthday dinner experience, from fine dineries to more affordable options.
Anniversary - Whether you want to celebrate in private or in the presence of family and friends, it’s clear that organizing an anniversary party in a restaurant is a fantastic way to mark this truly special day for your relationship. Many couples honor all the days they’ve been standing by each other’s side, supporting and loving through good times and bad by having a feast in a restaurant’s private dining room. No wonder, as they give couples a chance to celebrate without any unnecessary noises and interruptions.
Bridal shower - Having a bridal shower in a restaurant is extremely popular among brides to be. And we are not surprised, as they offer the opportunity to celebrate in a range of venues that can spice up the event, or even add a touch of glam, as you say goodbye to the single life and celebrate the upcoming wedding.
Baby shower - Having a great feast in a special restaurant to honor the future arrival of a little bundle of happiness is a fantastic way to organize a baby shower! Especially as the San Francisco culinary scene offers such a range of amazing options. Why not book a restaurant garden or patio during the summer season or a private dining room in winter? Enjoy the special ambiance of your chosen venue as you celebrate the new arrival with fantastic food and drink options.
Thanksgiving - Taking your nearest and dearest out for a festive feast at a restaurant to celebrate Thanksgiving is growing in popularity. After all, who doesn’t enjoy the chance to get out of the kitchen and truly enjoy a stress-free celebration for once? Chatting over delicious food and drinks without having to worry about cleaning up afterward seems like a dream celebration to us!
Holidays - During the holiday season, restaurants have a truly special and warm atmosphere that is amped up with decorations that will remind everyone of what the holiday season is all about – cherishing the moment and being surrounded by loved ones. So, to get everyone excited about this truly special time, why not round up your loved ones for an outing to a restaurant and spend some quality time over a delightful meal that brings you comfort and happiness.
Graduation - Whether it is high school graduation, or a college one, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that the long days of studying, exams, and essays are long gone! Having a delicious dinner with a glass of wine or champagne is a great way to honor the future, so why not book a great restaurant and celebrate to the fullest in the company of your loved ones.
Engagement - An engagement party is a truly fantastic way to spread the word and celebrate with family and friends. And having one in a restaurant gives the recently engaged couple a chance to meet and interact with all of your potential guests, and get to know the family they will become a part of. There’s no better way to do that than by having a chat over a mouth-watering meal in a restaurant.
Wedding reception - Not everyone’s into the big, expensive wedding receptions. That’s why many couples organize a dinner at a restaurant to honor this milestone occasion. Why not book a restaurant with the ambiance and menu that will suit your reception perfectly?
Generally, restaurants in San Francisco offer three types of rental fees. The first is the per hour rental fee which starts anywhere from $20+ per hour. Another option is per person rental packages with food and drinks included in the price. For these packages, expect prices to vary between $26 up to $120+. The last pricing option is minimum spend, with prices starting from $543. However, the final price may differ depending on the chosen rental options, so make sure to discuss everything with the venue manager before signing the contract! (All data from Tagvenue.com.)
You can book a space in some of the restaurants on the spot. But for special occasions, such as weddings, baby showers, Thanksgiving, bridal showers, etc., we recommend booking them at least several months in advance. This will allow you to have a much longer list of options to choose from, as well as plenty of time to discuss important matters with the venue managers.
Some of our ultimate favs are found around Geary St and along Turk St. But don’t limit yourself to those options, as the neighboring Mid Market District, as well as SoMa, have some great options that will simply leave everyone in awe.
We can recommend the areas near the four main subway stations: Civic Center, Powell Street, Montgomery Street, and Embarcadero. You will find fantastic options there that are ready and willing to cater to all of your needs for your special occasion. So don’t wait too long and start looking for your favorite one!
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
