Small to Medium Sized Private Functions
Ed's and The Embarcadero
are ideally suited for small to medium sized
private functions. Our private dining rooms can
accommodate birthday bashes, retirement parties,
Christmas or holiday dinners, Stampede
breakfasts, stags and stagettes, wedding
rehearsal dinners and small wedding receptions
Ed's has private dining rooms available for groups of 10 to 24 for table service. Larger groups (up to 45) can be accommodated upstairs at The Embarcadero, and up to 60 in two adjoining rooms at Ed's. Private room bookings are subject to availability. There is no separate room charge, but minimum food and beverage purchases are sometimes required at times when we expect to be full.
Cocktail Style Service for Up to 100 People
Provided on the main floor at Ed's - or up to 300 in the summertime at The Embarcadero with our outdoor tent in the backyard. A selection of finger foods is specified, or alternatively, we can suggest a selection for you based on your budget and style of gathering.
We can develop a budget for a cocktail style function based on the following parameters:
Beverage style (open bar or limited selection)
Number of invitees
Duration of the event
Food and beverages are charged as served. Generally consumption is higher with full service of food and beverages. A typical budget for a 2 to 3-hour evening function is $15 to $25 per person for food (SAMPLE MENU), and an average of two drinks per person or $12 in beverages. Tax and gratuity is additional.
Sit-Down Dinners or Luncheons
Custom menus are available. This has two advantages
- the food will arrive faster as the selections
can be anticipated in advance, and the cost will
be within a desired budget, useful if one person
or company is hosting, due to the wide range of
Cocktail appetizers in a variety
selected beforehand in quantities from $2 to $8
Starter course (usually soup or salad)
Entree from a list of 4 or 5 choices pre-selected from the menu
Dessert either pre-selected options or a variety platter
We can adjust portions and selections to have fixed per-person prices for non-hosted events if necessary. For group bookings, items other than those on the menu can be arranged, subject to availability of product and sufficient notice.
Groups (10+) Before Saddledome or Stampede Events
(e.g. NHL Hockey games, concerts, rodeo) Bookings can only be accepted subject to the following conditions:
The group must arrive at least two hours prior to event start time, or alternatively the food must be pre-ordered or limited to a few pre-arranged items.
Large groups can only be accommodated
if having a meal - we unfortunately cannot reserve
for groups having just drinks and appetizers at
these times, unless finger-food items are ordered
in meal quantities.
Rooms are available privately prior to major events if the group is large enough to fill the room (a minimum of 16 people), or with a minimum $600 in food and beverage purchases for smaller groups.
PLEASE PHONE to confirm receipt of a faxed or emailed pre-order.
