Nice Lunch Near Balboa Park - SD

Im looking for a nice restaurant to host a lunch for about 15 people near Balboa Park. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Laurel (I think there have been some recent positive reviews.) My other suggestion, for the view, not sure about the food as it's been a while, is Mr. A's - if it's still there. Also if you're willing to go about a mile or two north there is a lot of stuff in Hillcrest.
Not sure if the Prado (located in Balboa Park) is open for lunch, but if they are that would be a good choice. I've heard good things about the lunch at Park Manor Suites, on 6th, but haven't been myself.
Someone mentioned Laurel, but I don't think they do lunch. If the weather is fine, and if your budget can stand it, Bertrand at Mr. A's offers excellent food and a killer view. Finally, while some whose views I respect don't care for it, I like the Prado very much for lunch -- but then, to me, a great lunch is a delicious soup, a first-rate salad, and a nice bottle of chilled white.

If you like Italian, you will LOVE Gemellis at 5th & Laurel. Right by the Laureal entrance to the park. Best Italian in the city...honest.
