When The Diplomat Beach Resort underwent its $100 million transformation in April 2017, every restaurant space was designed to have the ability to make it private. There are a total of 9 eating venues at the resort, from casual grab-and-go market to the most exquisite full-service meal. Each has a completely different vibe and cuisine from the next, but the one thing they all share in common is that their private dining options are next-level. For those with refined tastes looking to host their next dinner event with class, privacy, and upscale service, consider these exquisite private dining spaces at the wildly popular Hollywood resort.
