Restaurant wedding locations

Hi there...
I am looking for a relatively inexpensive restaurant location for our wedding.
We are looking for an outdoor area that is pretty, with great food, that is not crazy expensive, and can hold about 40 people

Any good ideas???

Thank you!!

  1. That is a tall order. How much per person?

    1. I went to a wedding at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Sherman Oaks a couple years ago. The wedding was outdoors in a very pretty area and then the reception/dinner was in a nice hall inside. I don't have any idea of the cost, but it might be worth looking into.

        but the food is so bleh there!

        I was thinking maybe the Odyessea, but the food isn't spectacular there, either. They do lotsa weddings, though.

        Does Duke's in malibu have a patio?

        Ca' Del Sole might work, but it can be pricey.

        Inn of the Seventh Ray is pretty, but also pricey.

        What about the cafe at the getty?

          Duke's has the "Barefoot Bar" but I think it would be too small and not really appropriate.

            A friend recently told me that Duke's did some restructuring....and the Barefoot Bar is gone. Haven't had a chance to confirm it, though.

      2. Do you want to hold the ceremony there as well?

        1. I don't know your budget but I have been to lovely weddings at Il Cielo. The owner, Pasquale, helped up plan a party for my mother-in-law and we found them surprisingly accommodating on the budget. It's very charming.

          1. Love PANE E VINO's back patio.

            i Cugini's patio.

            Gardens at Glendon patio - not as pretty
