Frequently Asked Questions

Your Menu Selections

We work with you to determine a menu that lends itself to the celebration you are planning and incorporates the freshest seasonal ingredients and local foods when seasonally possible.

Pricing

Our prices are not listed on the web site. When we establish your menu then we can provide a price per person. If you are planning a buffet, you may want to incorporate two entrees and two to four side dishes. Should you be providing a cocktail hour with a variety of stationary and passed hors d'oeuvres prior to your dinner, then the meal itself may be a bit lighter. So much to consider, but we'll help you think it through.

Children ages three and under are free. Children ages four to twelve are charged at 50% the adult menu price. This information can be provided at the time the guest guarantee is given.

Vermont Meals Tax is currently 9% and that is added to the food portion only of your bill.

Service is an additional fee of $20 an hour for each member of the staff at your function. Chefs are billed at $150 each. We will make a labor estimate when we determine your menu and number of guests.

Gratuities are not included in your bill but are appreciated for exceptional service and can be included in your final payment and dispersed among staff members

Deposit and Payment

A $500 deposit is required for us to reserve your date. Two weeks prior to your event we will ask for both a guaranteed guest count and 75% of the estimated total of your bill should be paid at this time. No cancellations should be made after this time. Should you wish to add a guest to your guarantee, the number of guests may be increased up to 48 hours in advance of your event.

The balance of your bill is due on the day of your event.

Rentals

Rental items are additional. We are happy to assist you in putting your rental list together. After we plan your menu, we can talk about everything from glassware, table settings, linens, cooking equipment and a tent to salt and pepper shakers. The rental company you select will provide you with an estimate of rental charges.

Bar Service

We are not licensed to provide bar services. There are licensed beverage service companies in our area that we can recommend. Based upon your event and beverages services, they can provide you with an estimate of their charges.
