Groups and Gatherings

Your Group + Our Expertise = Dining Pleasure

Bringing a small or large group to the CIA for a culinary adventure is as easy as one, two, three.

1. Choose a date to celebrate
2. Invite your friends, colleagues, or association members
3. Decide on your favorite cuisine

Large Groups
We love sharing food with people. If your group has between 20 and 50 people, we have delicious three- or four-course banquet menus available for your dining pleasure. Let our team walk you through the options. We can even make reservations up to six months in advance!

Small Gatherings
We have a lovely private dining room within our restaurant to accommodate intimate gatherings. Celebrate benchmark birthdays, recent retirements, or much-deserved promotions.

The private Enoteca dining space seats 12–17 people. The Tower Room, overlooking the main dining room, seats 10 people. The à la carte dining off of the restaurant’s menu brings you maximum flexibility and enjoyment to your occasion.

You can book your event up to three months in advance by calling the reservations office at 845-471-6608!

Take Over Our Restaurant!
Thinking of having a gathering large enough to take over our restaurants entirely? Let our staff help you make a lasting impression on colleagues, association members, family, or friends while you share a great meal. Advance planning necessary.

For further information, contact Judy Hannon, food and beverage sales manager, at 845-451-1544 or Rebecca Morgan-Imperati, director of food and beverage, at 845-451-1223. Small groups call 845-471-6608.
