From receptions for up to 130 people to more intimate, educational wine tastings, St. Vincent hosts a wide variety of private events. Our open floor plan gives us tremendous flexibility in how we utilize the space, and our kitchen, helmed by Chef Bill Niles, can turn out anything from canapés to multi-course seated meals. Expert beverage guidance is provided by Owner/Wine Director David Lynch, who curates St. Vincent’s wine and beer program, recently named an Open Table “Diner’s Choice” winner.

Awarded Three Stars from the San Francisco Chronicle, St. Vincent is an American tavern, working with the best, most seasonal ingredients. Chef Bill Niles, previously of Bar Tartine, is a native of Philadelphia and draws on many East Coast influences in his cooking, often reaching down to the southeastern US for inspiration. James Beard Award-winning sommelier and author David Lynch complements this bold cuisine with an extensive, eclectic beverage selection, including more than 100 wines under $100. Bill and David are always available to work with you directly on food and wine choices for your event. (For current menus and wine list, please see the “Eat” and “Drink” sections of this site.)


Luncheons (12pm-4pm, Mon-Sat)

St. Vincent is not open for regular lunch service, but can host seated, private luncheons for up to 40 people (as well as larger ‘stand-up’ receptions). Pricing for seated luncheons begins at $35/person for food ($25/person for ‘stand up’ events with lighter fare), with beverages charged on consumption. 8.75% CA Sales Tax and 20% gratuity added. Lunch events represent excellent value, offering an opportunity to “own” the space at a fraction of the cost of an evening buyout.

Buyouts (evenings, Mon-Sun)

A food & beverage minimum of $5,000 (before Tax & 20% Gratuity) is required for evening buyouts Mon-Wed; the minimum increases to $6,000 from Thu-Sat. There are no other charges other than those for food and beverage. St. Vincent is typically closed Sundays, so pricing varies for Sunday buyouts based on the style and size of the event.

Offsite Catering (open)

Or we can come to you: We cater events of any size, with food pricing starting at $25/person for 4 different passed items. Service charges and other expenses apply. All of our wines are available for retail sale as needed.


As needed, we are happy to provide (at competitive rates): Valet Service; Custom Menus; Party Favors (such as our house-made vinegar or copies of David Lynch’s books); Floral Arrangements; Audio/Visual; Custom-Designed Wine Education Programs
