Peninsula Recommendation: Party For 70

  • 8

Looking for your recommendation for a restaurant preferably with a private room that can accommodate around 70 people ( 50 adults & 20 children). Also looking to spend around $35-40 per head not including alcohol. We are not interested in doing a Chinese restaurant as that has been done before. Thanks

  1. The Basque Cultural Center in SSF. The menu options are limited, but they can easily handle that size (it is not a restaurant though). A good spot for big groups.

    1. Zibibbo in Palo Alto has a large private room that easily will fit your group. Should meet your budget since it's served family style. There have been reports however that it's inconsistent.

      1. I started working in Palo Alto recently so I've been experimenting with a few places. I've heard good things on yelp about Illusions Supper Club on California Ave. It's suppose to be a good lebanese restaurant with a lot of differents areas for large groups. You may want to check it out. I'm planning on trying it out soon.

        1. Iron Gate in Belmont has a private room that can seat 70. I don't know about $40/person.

          1. re: gourmetwannabe

            Been to Irongate last December and it is retro and just plain fun for a large private group - polished, professional black-tie continental service that exists no where else anymore. Give them your banquet business because this classic old throw-back deserves to be kept alive and well.

              If you like the idea of "old-school," try the Van's 'On the Hill' in Belmont, as well. They have nice banquet rooms with terrific views, too:

              Kuleto's in Burlingame may fit the bill:

              As would Kingfish in San Mateo:

              Though both might be pushing your price limit.

            2. Left Bank in San Mateo is very good and I think within that price range

              1. Hope I'm not too late, but I heartily endorse the recommendation of Left Bank, San Mateo. I recently hosted a smaller group for a birthday, but they also have a much larger private room. Service and food outstanding, and their private dining manager is a pleasure to work with. Oodles of parking too.
