The State Dining Room is the larger of two dining rooms on the State Floor of the Executive Residence of the White House, the home of the President of the United States in Washington, D. It is used for receptions, luncheons, larger formal dinners, and state dinners for visiting heads of state on state visits.
The room seats 140 and measures approximately 48 by 36 feet (15 by 11 m).
