Twelve Excellent Private Dining Rooms in New York


New York City’s endless supply of standout restaurants are enough to keep a dedicated eater occupied every night of the week. Though when it comes to sharing the experience with friends, limited capacity and busy reservation lines can make a group reservation as challenging as finding a cab on a rainy night in Manhattan. Luckily, many of the city’s best restaurants offer private dining experiences, all bookable in advance, where friends and loved ones can come together while also diving into some of the most delicious menus the city has to offer. From a laid-back tavern serving American cuisine to one of New York’s most famous fish restaurants, these 12 private dining rooms can accommodate your next private Big Apple soirée in style.

A friendly heads-up: most spots on this list are available for full and/or partial buyouts; and do note that restaurants’ group policies vary — some opt for a set menu, other don’t; some are bookable via Resy, while others encourage you to reach out directly.
