Wedding Reception in LA or OC with Fantastic Food?

I'm trying to find a wedding reception site in LA or OC that serves really great food. I know most weddings are not known for their food, but my family is very particular and I want something that everyone will really enjoy. Any suggestions? Looking for something preferably not over $100/a head and a place that will fit 150-250 ppl.

        1. Maybe try booking an entire restaurant. I looked into having my wedding at Cicada in downtown LA since I had heard pretty good things about that venue. You may want to check them out. It's a gorgeous room, but indoors so we decided against it. Another option that I looked into was Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu.

          You can do as WedPlanner suggested and rent a location and then bring in your own caterer. Only thing here is that if you want to nice location AND good/interesting food, you WILL go over $100/head. I had thought I could save $ going this route, but nope... weddings can get e.x.p.e.n.s.i.v.e!
