Myth or Boulevard for a private party?

mrsry Sep 23, 2006 01:48 PM

I'm trying to decide on a place to have a reception for about 15-20 people, and have boiled it down to Myth and Boulevard. I don't live in CA, so I haven't had a chance to dine at either restaurant! Which would you recommend in terms of food, service, and (if you have any knowledge on this topic) their private party area? I have noticed that Myth hasn't been the easiest place to work with so far.

    Thanks for setting me straight! I had only attended events at the private room upstairs and had no idea about the downstairs...

      The downstairs room at Boulevard is very nice, i.e not just another "group room." The food at Boulevard is superb. I can't comment on service for a group, but individual service has always been friendly and attentive without being oppressive or annoying.

      I can't comment on Myth, as I haven't been there yet.

        We did a company Xmas party in the downstairs room at Boulevard and it was outstanding, both service and food. Don't remember exactly, but I think we had around 20 people and nobody felt crowded as far as I know.

        Myth is great but have never used the private room there.

        Myth's private room is gorgeous as well. It's separated, yet appears to have a very open feeling. 20 people should be able to fit comfortably.

        Food and service-wise, you can't go wrong with either one.

          Boulevard has a private room that is gorgeous, but it would top out at about 15 people -- 20 would be way too cramped. If you can keep your party down to 15, it would be perfect.

            Boulevard has two private rooms. The downstairs room seats 20-65.

            I've always had fantastic meals at Boulevard and their private room looks gorgeous. I can't comment on Myth.
