Any parties of 8 or more people in the Private Dining Room will be required to provide Bistro 821 with a Credit Card to hold the reservation. We require parties that use a Set Menu to provide a guaranteed number of people within 72 hours of the event. That guaranteed number of people is what will be charged to the Credit Card on file, even if fewer people show up for the event. This is due to scheduling and food ordering that needs to be completed in time to prepare for the event. If a party is using our Regular Menu, then the Large Party Confirmation Policy (as shown below) will be applied. There is a room charge of $400.00 that will be charged 7 days prior to the event.
