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?
For dinners with an arrival of 6:30 pm, we anticipate wrapping up by 9:30 pm. For dinners where the arrival is 5:30 pm, we would finish at approximately 8:30 pm.
How is the seating done?
At Rosedale Farms & Vineyards, we have long rectangular tables that seat 14 people comfortably and can do up to 16 if needed. Other farms have long communal tables. We pre-determine seating at all our sit down dinners. When you place your order online, you’ll see a notes field designated for this information.
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 pre-determine seating.
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
All dietary restrictions should be communicated at the time of booking, any restrictions communicated the day of we will do our best to accommodate; however, we may not have all the available or necessary options on hand.
What if the weather calls for rain?
We very rarely cancel dinners as we have a large sturdy tent, but we would always err on the side of caution if the forecast calls for dangerous conditions. If the event is cancelled due to weather, we will contact you via the email you provided when ordering to communicate plans and we will honor your ticket on a subsequent night.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably and for the weather conditions. Casual/smart casual attire is perfectly acceptable.
