2021 Banquet Reservation Agreement
Thank you for choosing Emory’s! We look forward to the opportunity to work together to make your special event the best.
A $500 deposit is required along with this agreement to reserve space for your event. The deposit will be used to confirm your reservation and hold the room, and as a damage deposit. The deposit will be held for up to three (3) business days after your event has concluded, and will be refunded as long as no damage is done to the room, equipment, or any other restaurant property. Should damage occur, the deposit will go towards replacing the damaged materials. Upon receipt of this agreement and deposit, reservations are confirmed as final. Without a deposit, the reservation is considered tentative and we reserve the right to release holds on our banquet room after 72 hours. Banquets cancelled 2 weeks (14 calendar days) or more prior to the event are refundable. If cancellation occurs less than 2 weeks (14 calendar days) before the event, the deposit is non-refundable. December cancellations less than 1 month (30 calendar days) notice will forfeit their deposit, except in a situation where the space is rebooked. All cancellations must be made in writing or directly with the Banquet Manager.
Emory's banquet facility requires a final guarantee of menu selections, the number of guests attending, and entrée pre-counts by 12:00pm at least five (5) business days prior to your event. Business days are defined as Monday through Friday. Once received, this number constitutes a guarantee. The bill will reflect the final guarantee or the actual number of guests - whichever is greater. The final guarantee number is of the utmost importance to ensure that the food, beverages, and scheduled service personnel is adequate to meet your needs. Emory's Banquet Menu items and prices are subject to change at any time, and we will do our best to notify you of these changes in advance.
We require a minimum food and beverage fee by met (refer to Food and Beverage Minimum page of the Banquet Information). If the minimum is not met, the difference will be calculated and added to the bill as a "Room Fee". We add Washington State Sales Tax to the final bill, along with a 4% service charge in order to cover government mandated cost increases for employee benefits. The amount of gratuity may be determined by the host when the final bill is presented, with industry standards generally 18-20% prior to sales tax.
The event host will be presented with one single bill - no separate checks will be provided (with the exception of a No Host Bar). The balance is due in full at the conclusion of your event. Emory's promotional gift certificates or personal checks may not be used toward banquet payment. We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Emory's Gift Cards, or a Company Check (with advance notice). E-Card points will not be accrued on banquet events.
