We can book and fill entire restaurants or just take over a section or room.
How does it work?
We book your entire restaurant, a section, a table, or a private room
You pick the date and we work with you to set the menu
You decide the price point per person
You can do it as a prix fixe or let guest order directly from your menu.
We promote the event and sell tickets from our website.
Why partner with us?

Before choosing your date/s, please check out the current Friends with Forks bookings.
We aim to have at least 2 events a month.
We are now booking through June 2023.
We like to have 2 weeks between events and at least three weeks to promote each event.
We will introduce new people to your restaurant. We do all the marketing for you and take care of the logistics.
Absolutely nothing. You choose what price you want the meal to cost, and you get 100%.
No. You get the full amount you requested for the price of the meal. At this phase, Friends with Forks does not do any revenue share. Friends with Forks increases the price of the meal slightly to cover our admin costs, but this does not come out of your revenue.
We pay you via credit card the night of the event or the next day.
Ideally, we suggest $25-$65/pp including tax, delivery and tip.
You tell us your slow nights/days. We can work with any times.
That is a great problem to have! Our ticketing platform immediately sets up a waitlist for any event. We prefer to offer a second seating if we have a big enough waitlist.
All our dinner events are set up as fundraisers. We have a separate donate option on our ticketing platform.
We can set up your dinner to raise funds for any cause you want to support.
Customers have the option to order alcohol separately from you unless we include alcohol in a prix fix.
We suggest including at least 2 courses, and 3 choices for the main course. Include vegetarian and gluten free options if possible.
The menu could be a choice of: one appetizer, a main dish, and/or a dessert. You decide. Always good to throw in something special that they would not get if they came on their own.
Always best to impress your Dinner Mates guests but this does not mean you have to serve your high price point dishes.
Absolutely! We can make it a regular event, weekly/monthly or whatever works best!
