Private Dining Guide

Bali Hai | Partner content

Being with family doesn’t always have to mean being at home. Not every kitchen can handle the whole clan, and sometimes the occasion calls for going out. These private rooms and dining services are ready to treat you like family and provide food every bit as good as your own holiday fare—without the stacks of dishes at the end.

Bali Hai Restaurant has been a favorite event venue in San Diego for over sixty years. The spectacular view of San Diego Bay and the downtown skyline make it the perfect location for all private event types. The versatile spaces provide accommodations for festivities of almost any type or size.

Whether you’re planning a wedding, class reunion, birthday, anniversary, rehearsal dinner, celebration of life, fundraiser, business meeting, or corporate event, the Bali Hai provides an incredible canvas for moments that will last a lifetime. Offering extensive food and drink packages, from a luau buffet menu, plated meal service, or a private brunch buffet, we have options available for all types of events with friendly, efficient, and experienced staff on-site to assist in making your private dining experience one to remember.
