All events can be served or buffet-style. The price lists give you and idea of the type of meals we can prepare for you. However, if you’re looking for something specific, we would be happy to accommodate you.
HALL AND ROOM RESERVATIONS PROCEDURES
We can tentatively hold a room/hall for a period of no more than three weeks. A deposit will be required to confirm a booking.
Your contract should be completed with the Manager at least three (3) weeks prior to your function date, thus allowing us the time required to do our ordering, staffing and preparation for any special requests you may have. If the contract is not finalized in time, a late charge may be applied to your invoice.
Prices are guaranteed for a period of 60 days prior to the date of the function. All food and non-alcoholic beverages are subject to 13% HST and a 5% service charge.
When booking a hall/room, we need to know approximately how many people will be attending your event. However, we will require the confirmed number of guests two (2) weeks prior to the function. You will be responsible for the guaranteed number of guests or the actual number of meals served, whichever is greater.
We have a variety of services available to suit your needs. You will find these listed in our Banquet Menu. The rules and regulations of the Provincial Liquor Laws (LLBO) and policies & procedures of the Società Caruso govern us. All wines and spirits are subject to 13% HST AND a 5% service fee.
If a cancellation of an event occurs, the initial deposit will be retained unless the room is re-booked. An additional fee will also be charged in the event of a cancellation two (2) months prior to the function date.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE SERVICE
We do not allow any food or beverage to be brought into the Società, nor do we rent or allow non-employees the usage of the kitchen or the bar areas. Under some circumstances, we will allow homemade wine to be served with your meal, but it must be properly bottled and accompanied by a liquor permit. When ordering the meal for your function, the Società will also allow you to bring your homemade desserts for your sweet table.
INVOICING AND PAYMENT
The initial deposit used to secure a room/hall will be deducted from the total of your invoice. The remaining balance will be invoiced and payment in full is required fourteen (14) from the date of the function. A late fee of 2% is charged on all overdue accounts.
The room/hall you book does not have any decorations, but you may hire a decorator or decorate yourself. You must provide your own tools: for example, scissors, pins, tape, extension cords, etc. Your decorations must be removed by the end of the evening, unless you’ve made alternate arrangements with the Manager. The use of nails, staples or tape that can damage the walls or ceiling, is strictly prohibited. Decorations can be hung from the existing hooks on the walls and ceiling. Table candles for centre pieces may be used if they are in a bowl, floating in water or in a closed container. Due to fire regulations, exposed flames cannot be used.
Damages may occur in some cases. The deposit may be withheld at the discretion of the Manager to cover the cost of repairing the damage. If the damages are significantly more than the deposit, the person named on the contract will be responsible for repairing the damages.
We go out of our way to satisfy our customers. If there is anything of which you are not sure or wish to have a specific meal or service you do not see on our menu, please do not hesitate to ask. We will do our very best to accommodate you.
