Frequently Asked Questions:

Where is the dinner held? Dinners are held at unique locations in, and around Tampa Bay Florida.  Directions to each event are emailed to registered guests.

What happens if it rains? We will provide tents or an indoor area when possible.  If not, the dinner will be canceled (with as much notice as possible) and you will have priority for the next event free of charge.

What is the dress code? Casual.  We want everyone to feel at ease with each other, and their surroundings.

What is the price per person for a dinner and what does that include?  The dinners range in price from $50 – $150 per person depending on the theme and venue. This includes live music or records for entertainment. We offer a selection of wines that are paired specifically to each plate, along with a multi-course feast at a communal table. We highly encourage cash payments for locals.

Can you accommodate vegetarians/vegans/allergies?  Each Hidden Table dinner is based on a theme, focusing on regional ingredients and what is in season, and the menu is fixed.  Many of the menus involve meats, dairy and seafood – or a combination – and may not be a good value for vegetarians or vegans. However we will have from time to time vegan/vegetarian raw food themed dinners in the future. If you have any food allergies, please let us know in advance, so we can steer you away from certain items at a dinner or suggest another event that may be better suited for you.

How long do the dinners last?  We encourage leisurely dining and enjoying the space we’re in and the dinner generally lasts about 3 to 4 hours, or longer, as guests often don’t want the night to end.

Is gratuity included in the ticket price?  No.  Please feel free to leave your servers a tip, it is greatly appreciated and evenly distributed among the staff.

Is the menu available in advance?  Our menu is usually being completed up to the day of the dinner as we source directly from our local farmers and hand select the best ingredients available at the moment.  If you would like a rough copy of the menu – keeping in mind that it will likely change somewhat – we are happy to email a copy to you.

Are tickets refundable?  No, but they are transferable to another guest.  If you cannot attend the dinner, please contact us with the names of the new guests.

How many people attend a dinner? Between 14 and 24.

Can we make a reservation for a larger party?  At this point we are capping it at 4 seats per reservation. In the future as the table grows then we will allow bigger numbers per parties.

Is there assigned seating at the dinner? Yes. Each party’s seats are marked by name cards with first & last name of the person who made the reservation, in order to avoid splitting up parties at the table.  If you would like to sit with someone who reserved seats separately, please contact us in advance of the event.

Is there a waiting list for sold out dinners? No.  Tickets are non-refundable, so once we are sold out, we cannot offer any additional seats. However if someone backs out last minute perhaps you can negotiate with them to get their seat.
