I would just say “restaurant reception to follow” or “cocktails and dinner to follow”.

I agree with the others. Don’t worry about what you’re not offering, just say “cocktails and dinner to follow at X”

I’m no etiquette expert but I don’t think you need to set expectations unless you aren’t serving a full meal so that guests can plan accordingly. I’m having a restaurant reception and I just put “reception to follow”.
