Seafood, large group, Westside?

Hey folks -- looking for a good place to go next week with a group of about 8 people on the Westside. They're mostly seafood- not meat-eaters, and one has strict dietary restrictions, so we're not looking for a place where the chef makes what he wants and refuses to change. A place where we don't have to yell to be heard would also be great.

We've been to Ocean Avenue Seafood, which we liked, but I was hoping to try someplace new. Any suggestions?

      The Galley in Santa Monica. Or for Chinese Seafood, Hop Li in two locations. I also like McCormick and Schmick in Beverly Hills - a bit pricey, but fresh, delicious and quiet.

    2. I think Catch in the Casa Del Mar hotel might fit the bill. I've heard great things and it's mostly seafood.

      The above poster's recommendation for The Lobster is a great bet as well. I went there with my girlfriend about a month ago and we were both pleased with our food - solid and well executed if not particularly inventive (not that it needs to be).

        1. Haven't been in quite a while but Delmonicos on Pico might fit the bill. Large room and as I recall, pretty tasty food. It's a it further East but only a 10 minute drive from our place in Santa Monica.
