  1. Only thing I can think of is two Italian restaurants I've been to that you'd pretty much take up the entire restaurant for. They might be able to negotiate some sort of deal?

    The places I'm thinking of are Mario's By The Sea (actually in a shopping plaza in Dana Point (at Golden Lantern and Camino Del Avion) - there's a 20% off coupon on their website all the time. It's

    Food there is not amazing, but it's not awful either.

    The other place, which would be my preference of the two is Salvatore's in Mission Viejo. You would definitely fill the whole place with 70 people, I'm not even positive they can FIT 70, but your friend could call and ask.

    They offer a complete dinner that's quite the deal.

    1. There are a couple of places, but I can't vouch for the price. We had several company functions at El Adobe in San Juan Capistrano. The food it good Anglo-Mexican, and the locale in downtown SJC is great.
      There's a wonderful Italian-Argentine restaurant on La Paz near the freeway: Villa Roma. They can definitely fit 70.
      They also have "Tango night"!
