/ Restaurant facilities
German term or phrase: Sitz-Stehempfang
Sitz-Stehempfang 110 Plaetze

Context is restaurant's facilities (on its own with previous question Menubestuhlung)

Would this be: buffet, sit-down/stand-up meal, or something else entirely?

Many thanks

my opinion


Explanation:
A "Stehempfang" in the US is an 'informal reception'. So, a Sitz-Stehempfang, would be an 'informal reception with seating opportunities for 110" (no need to add 'people')

or : ...with limited seating for 110
