What is Restaurant Week?

Inland Empire Restaurant Week is an annual 14-day dining event showcasing culinary talent in communities throughout the Inland Empire. Participating restaurants will offer one of these options - a prix fixe, 3-course lunch and/or dinner menu; a free appetizer or dessert with an entree; or a percentage discounted off of the bill. No tickets or passes are required - just a desire to "Taste the I.E.'s flavors" and indulge in the best the I.E. has to offer. Don't waste gas or spend time in traffic, find that hidden gem and enjoy incredible local cuisine by inspiring chefs.

How Does Restaurant Week Work?

Restaurants will sign-up to participate at and take advantage of IE Restaurant Week marketing efforts, promotions and other engagement opportunities provided by the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau. All the restaurant has to do is sign-up, decide whether they will serve lunch, dinner or both; design a menu and price point for their specially selected menus. Diners can see a list of all participating restaurants and menu options by visiting the Restaurant Week Page. Make sure you check back regularly - listings will be updated as more restaurants are added.

Why Restaurant Week is "Good for Business"

Powered by The Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau, IE Restaurant Week was created to build awareness about the Inland Empire, its diverse culinary community, and drive business to our local restaurants. Restaurant week showcases, and also strengthens the destination’s brand and culinary reputation. Attracting tourists to the area increases business for hotels, shopping centers, entertainment and other local businesses. Everyone benefits from the impact of the tourism dollars spent in the area.
