There’s nothing quite like heading to a gathering in a private room at your favourite local restaurant.

Whether it’s a charming table, a private room, or simply somewhere tucked away from the main area, we love a good cozy spot to sit down and eat up with loved ones.

Of course, you can always buy out entire restaurants for larger celebrations, but for a smaller crew, here are 20 Vancouver restaurants that are perfect for special events.
