Private Dining

With offerings for groups of anywhere from 6 to 110 guests, Dinner’s private dining spaces are the ideal setting for any festive gathering. The unparalleled views from the dining room across the Yarra River to Melbourne’s central business district offer an ideal space for any occasion; perfect for private celebrations and corporate events.

At the Chef’s Table there is always a sense of occasion as guests dine in the beating heart of the kitchen. It offers a choice of tasting menus whose ingredients are carefully sourced from the farmers, producers and fishermen Dinner works so closely with. The Chef’s table can seat 4-6 guests; each dish and its stories are presented by the head chef who describes the creative process, ingredients and preparation. A sommelier offers guidance regarding wine throughout the whole experience and its own designated waiter providing exceptional, passionate service.

Dinner’s Private Dining Room and Main Dining Room are available for exclusive hire for lunch from Monday to Friday. With capacity for 10 to 110 guests the spaces are ideally suited to business lunches and celebrations. Guests will receive complete privacy as well as the immersive restaurant experience Dinner is renowned for.

The Main Dining Room is also available for private hire any evening of the week. It has a capacity for up to 110 seated guests and can also accommodate a drinks reception or seated presentations whilst dining. The events team will ensure the flawless organisation of every detail including personalised menus and beverage selections, table plans, place cards, pre-event formalities, table centrepieces and audio-visual equipment.

Festive Menu, Friday Lunches in December

For the month of December, Dinner will open for lunch on Fridays with an exclusive festive menu created by Chef Director Ashley Palmer-Watts. The five course menu, at $170 per person, will include the Spiced Plum Meat Fruit (c. 13th- 15th century) and the decadent Festive Tipsy Cake (c. 1810).   

The Festive Tipsy Cake is a brioche enriched with mincemeat and baked with brandy, Sauternes, vanilla and cream. Based on the 19th century favourite, the tipsy cake was a way of using up stale sweet bread, cake or biscuits which were covered with as much brandy or wine as they could absorb and then topped with custard.

The Bar

The Bar offers a uniquely elegant destination to enjoy the art and craftsmanship of the cocktail bar. Drinks are enjoyed from an elevated vantage point overlooking the main dining room through to the panoramic lights of Melbourne's skyline. This space can be made available for post-work festive cocktail receptions.

For bookings or enquiries please contact events@dinnerbyheston.com.au or +61 3 9292 5568
