How far in advance should I make reservations?
We recommend making reservations as early as possible. With only 27 seats available each evening, we can book up as much as a month or two beforehand, particularly during the popular summer months. Tables of two and large groups are particularly popular so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment
When do you post the menu?
To uphold our commitment to using local foods, supporting sustainability and minimizing food waste, our Executive Chef creates a new menu every week. Each of our menus is designed to showcase the freshest ingredients available from our food partners at the time it is created. The weekly menu will be made available on The Experience page of our website on the Sunday of each week.
Is there a minimum number of guests required for booking?
Each group that books is seated at their own private table. We have tables for as few as two people up to as many as 10 people.
What is the maximum number of guests you can seat at one table?
The largest table that can be booked online seats 6 people on Locally Yours and Chef's Table nights. If you have a larger group, please contact Christine at The Table to discuss available options for those nights, as a table of up to 10 people is sometimes possible.
The largest table available on Cuinary Ceilidh nights seats up to 10 people.
Groups may book more than one smaller table to accommodate larger group sizes but we cannot guarantee that the tables will be located close to each other in the dining room and tables cannot be pushed together.
Can I book The Table for a Private Event?
Any of our evening dining events can be booked exclusively by a single group. A minimum guest number of 24 applies. We do not offer custom menu events.
Do you have a wine list?
We do! Like our food menus, our beverage menu features only wines, beers & spirits grown and produced in Canada. We are incredibly privileged to live in a country so vast in size and geography that it, in and of itself has a very diverse terroir. We’re proud to showcase the hard-working wine makers, brewers, and distillers of Canada. Our team is happy to help you find a beverage that you’re sure to enjoy!
Do you offer wine pairings?
We do! Our chef personally curates a flight of Canadian wines that pairs perfectly with each week’s menu.
Can I bring my own wine?
You most certainly can! Do you have a special bottle of wine you’ve been holding on to for a special occasion? Do you have a specific wine you enjoy drinking with fine food? Bring it with you! Our liquor license allows our guests to bring their own (commercially produced) wine to enjoy with their meal. Just present it to your waitperson when you arrive for serving. Our corkage fee is $30 per bottle.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Apple Pay, Android Pay and Debit.
When should I arrive?
For our Locally Yours experiences we recommend that you arrive at 6:00pm to make yourselves at home at your table and make your drink selections before the meal begins at 6:30pm.
For the Chef's Table experiences we recommend you arrive at 5:30pm for drinks and the meal begins at 6:00pm.
Our Culinary Ceilidh experience begins outdoors, guests should arrive no earlier than 5:45pm.
When does the evening end?
Each experience is about 3 to 3.5 hours long, wrapping up by 9:00 or 9:30pm.
Are The Table’s dining experiences appropriate for children?
We do not recommend our experiences for children younger than 14 years of age. The Table is a fine dining venue that specializes in 4-7 course meals served over the course of 3-4 hours. It is difficult for children to sit through these long experiences or to enjoy the dishes served due to the large amount and adventurous style of food served. With our dining model each person that attends, whether an adult or child, is charged the same amount - we do not offer a children’s menu or pricing for our experiences.
What should I wear?
We don’t stand on ceremony at The Table. Wear whatever makes you happy! Are you dining with us for a special occasion or a date night? Break out that fancy outfit you’ve been saving. Coming for a meal with old friends? Keep it “business casual” with slacks and a nice shirt.
Our biggest piece of advice is for those of you joining us for our Culinary Ceilidh – remember that this evening begins outdoors, please dress appropriately for the weather (an extra jacket can always be left in the car!).
Where are you located?
We are located in beautiful rural New London, just three buildings down from the corner of Route 6 and Graham’s Road (Route 8) on the South West side (map at the bottom of the webpage). The Table is about a 45 minutes drive from Charlottetown, 20 minutes from Summerside and 15 minutes from Cavendish.
Is parking available?
There is ample free parking available on the green space beside or in front of the building on either side of the driveway, and along Graham’s Rd in front of the church. We do ask that you not park in front of our neighbours homes or in the fire lane beside the church for safety reasons.
I have allergies and/or dietary restrictions, can you accommodate them?
The Table specializes in providing set menu meals where all guests are served the same menu at the same time. With this type of experience, it is difficult to simultaneously prepare allergy friendly food safely. While there are some allergies and dietary preferences that we can accommodate, unfortunately we cannot accommodate all allergies and dietary preferences.
Any guest with special dietary needs due to serious illness (e.g. celiac disease, anaphylactic allergies), religious restrictions or lifestyle choice should contact The Table directly by phone or email for confirmation as to whether their needs can be met during our experiences. We do not recommend our experiences for anyone who is a self-proclaimed “picky-eater”.
Allergies and dietary restrictions must be indicated at the time of booking.
We are profoundly grateful for all of the guests who wish to visit The Table for one of our dining experiences and strive to ensure their time with us is full, enjoyable and delicious. For this reason, we strongly recommend that individuals with allergies or dietary restrictions that we cannot accommodate, avoid making reservations with us so as not to compromise the quality of their experience by having to miss out on components of the meal.
What is your cancellation policy?
We require 72 hours notice to cancel a reservation.
When you make your reservation with us, we ask you to provide a credit card number to hold the reservation . If you attend your reservation as planned, the card will NOT be charged and you will be provided with a bill at the end of the evening for the amount owed.
If you cancel your reservation more than 72 hours prior to the date of your reservation, the hold will be removed and your card will not be charged. However, if you cancel less than 72 hours prior to your reservation, regardless of reason, your credit card will be charged the $50 per person due to the late notice.
Reservations may be changed, pending availability, as long as you contact The Table more than 72 hours in advance of the original reservation date.
Is the building wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately, The Table is not wheelchair accessible.
Do you sell gift certificates?
