The restaurant’s main dining area has enough seating for around 60 people, and another 45 people can sit outside when the weather warms up, and the patio offers standing space for those who just want to grab a bite to eat. glass. The Vue also has a banquet area for private parties that can comfortably accommodate around 70 people.
