Reservation Policy

Zum Schneider NYC does not take reservations unless it's for private parties of 10 PEOPLE OR MORE. On Fridays and Saturdays the limit is 25 people for one party.
During Oktoberfest, we accept reservations for groups of 10+, except on Saturdays and Sundays.

For reservations, or if you have any special requests, from band to buffet or anything else you might have in mind, please don't hesitate to call us anytime after 4pm (212) 598-1098 or just email us

Reservation Fee

We have a "small" room which fits a maximum number of 30 people. You can rent this room for 2.5 hours for a flat fee of $250. If you don't need the whole room, or want to be in a different part of the restaurant, the reservation fee is $10 per person (10 people or more only).

We ask that you pay the reservation fee at least 7 days prior to your event, either in person, or through paypal. The fee is a NON-REFUNDABLE RESERVATION FEE and is NOT DEDUCTED FROM YOUR BILL. We accept cash only and add 20% gratuity.


Minimum food and beverage guarantee

There is a minimum food and beverage guarantee of $35/person (not including tip & tax, or the reservation fee). If you reserve the entire small room you will be charged the minimum food and beverage guarantee for 25 people if your actual bill is lower than that.

Cakes and Corkage fee

There is NO fee for birthday cakes that you bring in. However, we charge a $20 corkage fee for champagne etc. that you bring. Unfortunately, you cannot bring any hard liquor simply because we don't have a license for it.

We will try our very best to host your event in a way that you, like many before you, will never forget.
