Portland Private Dining Events

Portland Private Dining Events

Multi-course meals with curated alcohol pairings.

Experience Portland’s incredible cuisine at our intimate pop-up dining events.

We meet personally with chefs, winemakers, brewers, and culinary creators to craft an intimate and delicious private dining experience. Each event is unique and designed to show-off Portland’s cuisine and craft beverages, all while learning about the chef and the wine/beer-makers. Menus are offered only once for an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience.

Our private dining events are an intimate yet engaging way for you to discover what Portland cuisine, culture and dining is all about. Laid back yet well crafted, we’ve combined incredible chefs with craft beverage makers to create an undoubtedly local culinary experience.

Customer Reviews:

5/5

This was one of the most amazing multi-course dinners I have been to. The hosts were very engaging, there was plenty of really good wine and scrumptious food in an elaborate candle-lit atmosphere, the scallops and the beef brisket were my favorite! Cannot recommend this enough!

Very lovely dinner. I got the privilege of sitting next to the wine maker and learning about the wines served. The meal itself was absolutely phenomenal.

Frequently Asked Questions:

We find a local chef, a sweet venue, and a local alcohol maker and put them all together into one unique evening of good food and good company. The chef will create a one-time-only, multi-course menu and introduce each course themselves. The alcohol maker will also discuss their pairing with each course. It’s an intimate, yet relaxed environment where a great food and an excellent time is guarantted.

If your party makes separate bookings but would like to be seated together at the dinner table, please contact us prior to the dinner to let us know and we’ll make sure it happens.

Yes, feel free to show your appreciation! Cash and card gratuities are accepted at the conclusion of each dinner and are split between all staff.

A lot. Each dinner is different, but you won’t leave hungry. Multiple courses of plentiful portions will be provided.

Each chef does their best to accommodate as many diets as possible, but please let us know prior to your tour dinner as same day requests cannot be guaranteed.

We make sure that every dinner has vegetarian options. For all other requests or allergies, please contact us prior to booking for more details.

All of our dinners require guests to be the age of 21 or older. IDs may be checked and are at the discretion of each venue.

No problem! We work hard to create an environment where everyone is welcome, and of course the focus is always on the food.

We also work hard to make sure that each alcohol pairing is perfect. If you prefer a different type of alcohol than what is being offered at your dinner, we will do our best to make substitutions but please note they will not be perfectly paired with each course. Feel free to contact us before booking if you have any questions. 

Dinners typically last between 2-3 hours. It is not unusual for guests to stay at the venue after dessert for more drinks and conversation.

At most of our private dinners, the bottles of wine or alcohol we try during the dinner is for sale which you can purchase to take home with you.

Each dinner is different, but we typically have anywhere between 10-20 people at each dinner. Further details are provided in the description for each dinner.

While cancellations for our private dinners are rare, we do have a waiting list if the dinner is full. Please contact us to be added or with any other questions.

Bookings cancelled 7 days or more before your tour are fully refundable (100% refund). Bookings cancelled within 7 days notice are not refundable. This is because seating is very limited at each event and they often sell out, it’s very hard for us to fill those seats at the last minute. Cancellations must be communicated by email to info@lostplate.com or by phone. If you would like to reschedule your tour with less than 7 days notice, we will need to charge 50% of your total since we are unable to fill your spots at short notice.

Ask us anything,
we love a good question.
