So now we're setting our table for your family. Our options for group dining reflect our commitment to serving you with the freshest seasonal ingredients in a warm setting. We look forward to having you in our home.

Asbury Park

The Abbot Room

45 to 175 guests
(125-guest max for sit-down dining)

Adjacent to Porta's main dining room, The Abbot Room is a completely private 2500-square-foot space with a 20-foot ceiling and stained concrete floor. It includes a private entrance, outdoor space, full bar, and private restrooms, as well as a dance floor boasting a crystal canopy, an art installation that doubles as a DJ booth, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems. It's a rich, dramatic backdrop for any event: wedding receptions, corporate meetings, non-profit fundraisers, photo shoots and film screenings, after parties, and gallery shows. Best of all, it's just a block from the beach.
