Private Event Guidelines
All semi-private rooms have a minimum dollar amount of food that has to be purchased in order tosecure your Special event. Food minimums vary depending on the date and time of your banquet event. If the minimum food requirement is not met the difference will be charged in the form of a room charge at the conclusion of your event.
A confirmation deposit is required for any Special event arrangements. Deposit will be applied towards your final bill the day of your event. Deposit is refundable by either party if a written cancellation notice is received within 72 hours of payment and the deposit is non-refundable thereafter under any circumstances. Deposits may be applied to a rescheduled event provided by El Torito Grill within 6 months from the original date.
A guaranteed number of guests are to be confirmed 7 days prior to your event. Final billing is based on the minimum guaranteed number stated on the contract or your actual guest attendance, which ever number is greater. All menus must be finalized within 7 days of your event.
El Torito Grill must be informed and approve any outside food the guest is planning to bring to each event. El Torito Grill does not allow guests to bring their own wine, beer or liquor. A cake cutting fee will not be applied when any special occasion cake is purchased from an outside bakery and brought into El Torito Grill.
Final payment is required at the conclusion of the event. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Diner’s Club or cash. We can accept personal checks or company checks as final payment for Special events only when checks are sent at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
Buffet Menus are for a minimum of 25 guests and can be customized to fit your needs. Additional food if needed may be purchased at the restaurant the night of the event. Under no circumstances are any food items on a buffet allowed to be taken as “to-go”.
Sit down Menus are available for any number of guests and can be customized to fit your needs. Guest can choose a hosted or non-hosted bar. Guest may also choose to limit the dollar amount they would like to host for beverages or limit the type of beverages served at their Special event.
