If you’re thinking of throwing a holiday party for your business or organization this year, better start planning now because the holidays are approaching FAST. Before your mind begins to race with all the to-dos, let us share 5 reasons to consider hosting your holiday party with us at Bon Appétit Restaurant.

1. Location, location, location

Dunedin is a convenient – and picturesque – location with proximity to many popular suburban and commuter areas such as Clearwater, Oldsmar, Countryside, Palm Harbor, Largo, Tarpon Springs and West Chase. Even if you’re business is in St. Petersburg or Tampa, Dunedin is only a short 30-minute drive.

2. Good food equals good times

Show your employees how much they’re appreciated through the art of beautifully prepared food. From abundant buffets and carving stations to formal sit-down dinners, our menus are filled with an array of delicious options to fit any budget.

3. Small party or large party, we can make it work!

Unlike other restaurants and venues in the area, we offer a variety of event spaces. If you are looking for a totally private space, our Crystal Ballroom located on the second floor is the perfect spot. For large parties, the entire space can be reserved. There is a private full bar and plenty of room for a dance floor, too. Or for smaller parties (50 guests or less), we can break up the upstairs space (Sunset I or Sunset II) into two to create a more intimate setting.

If you have a small team or office but would still like to do something special, we can create semi-private spaces in our restaurant. We have been hosting parties and special events for over 40 years, so rest-assured we can create the perfect setting for you, too!

4. Service, like it should be…

We’re told by many of our guests that once you experience Bon Appétit, it’s hard to dine elsewhere. There is a level of service and dedication that many restaurants simply lack. It’s all in the details, really, from checking the tablecloths, to monitoring the music and noise level, to the service itself. Our servers are knowledgeable and take the time to listen to their guests to ensure they are having the best experience possible.

You can expect the same quality of service from our banquet team, too. When you host a private party or event with us, you’ll work closely with one of our dedicated event managers to ensure everything goes perfectly.
