Festive place for a big birthday party for 80?

Any ideas for a place that might make 80 people of various ages happy? Fancy is okay. Interesting is better, and excellent service is a must. We're looking near Gladwyne/Ardmore.

  1. I'd suggest Evviva on Montgomery Avenue in Narberth. It's beautiful, food's very good, as is the service.

      Another vote for Evviva. We've hosted a few parties there, and attended many. It's in a lovely mansion on Montgomery Ave. with a parking lot. They supply the flowers for the table and can get you a terrific birthday cake. (They use a place in Wayne, I think it's Aux Delice.) Food is consistently good - your guests will have a few choices - and service is topnotch. Everyone is always pleased there.

        You also could say Eviva is the ONLY catering type place near Ardmore/Gladwyne. If you've ever been to a bar mitzvah there where they crammed 200 people and 50 kids into their one room .. you might disagree about beautiful service and amazing food. I've had gluey pasta and weak drinks there many times...
