Venue for a large party?
Hi hounds -
My sister is getting married in late October and is looking for a venue for a pre-wedding casual dinner for out-of-towners. She thinks there will be 50 - 70 people and wants a casual, fun place with great food that will do a no-host dinner. Easy, right?
I am thinking we should get a private room at a Chinese restaurant, and would love to hear suggestions for that (particularly downtown, FiDI, or close to good public transportation), as well as any other thoughts (except Buca di Beppo - not really our type of place).
Thanks in advance!
The Last Supper Club in Noe Valley (Italian food) has a private downstairs that may be reserved. I've been there twice, once with a large party where we reserved the downstairs room and once with just my wife. Liked the food once, was okay the other time. In general I hear its a bit hit or miss in terms of food.

It's become a bit of a conventioners' bus stop, but I'd say Tres Agaves, which has the party room space, the popular tequila bar for fun, and generally good food, although they get inconsistent reviews here.
If it's a weeknight, you could go to Henry's Hunan at 2nd and Natoma. They've got plenty of space and aren't crowded for dinner. Very popular Chinese food. Easy walk from BART Montgomery Station.

How about the private room at Empress of China?
Also, how about: Thirsty Bear? The upstairs area at Perbacco?
