QUESTION: As a customer, do I have to buy a discount card or carry a coupon to take advantage of the Savour York Region fixed menu?
ANSWER: No. You simply make reservations at the participating restaurant of your choice during the specified time period. A Savour York Region menu will be included and available to you once you arrive. There are no coupons to carry, cards to punch or passes to buy.
QUESTION: How far in advance can I make reservations, and for large parties, will I have to leave a credit card?
ANSWER: Reservations are now being accepted by calling the restaurant of your choice directly. Due to the diversity of the restaurants participating, along with an increased demand, some establishments may ask for a credit card reservation for parties of 8 or more. Inquire at each establishment for their policy on this matter. However, on the Friday and Saturday evening of the Savour York Region event offering, parties of 6 or more will require a credit card to avoid cancellations and missed reservations. Please view individual restaurants to view any additional black-out periods.
QUESTION: Will patrons be able to order items from the regular menu if they are not interested in the pre-fixed Savour York Region menu?
