Arrival and Timing
What time should I arrive?
For our sit-down dinners, you should arrive as close to the scheduled arrival time as possible as not to miss the reception. You will check-in with us upon arrival and we will provide your table number.

How long do the dinners usually last?
Dinners typically last about three hours.

How is the seating done?
At Rosedale Farms & Vineyards, we have long communal tables that seat 14 people comfortably and can go up to 16 if needed. We pre-determine seating at all our sit down dinners.

Will I be able to sit with my friends or co-workers?
Yes. In the notes field in our online ordering process, please list the reservation name of the person(s) you are joining. We will do our very best to accommodate all seating requests.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
All dietary needs must be communicated upon purchase. If you surprise us with a food restriction upon your arrival, we will do our best to accommodate you but we may not have the resources available. 

Beverage Options
What kind of alcoholic beverage options are offered at Chef to Farm Events?
Every event is different! The standard dinners include Rosedale wines served with the meal and often begin with a reception cocktail. For festivals, we have limited bars with items for sale including a small selection of liquor or domestic beers for purchase. Other events, such as our Tacos & Tequila dinners or BBQ, Blues & Brews feature specific cocktail or beer pairings.

We recommend always checking out each individual event’s description or menu ahead of time because each has different offerings.

What should I wear?
Dress comfortably and for the weather conditions. Casual attire is perfectly acceptable.
