Dinner for 30 in Seattle?
Looking for suggestions for a Saturday evening dinner for around 30 people in late January. We'd like to stay in Seattle - downtown, Belltown, Queen Anne, Shilshole or nearby. The capacity to handle 30 dinners at once is obviously a factor, a private dining room would be nice. Palisades might be a bit steep, Ray's is a definite possibility, I'm sure we can do better than Salty's. Thoughts?
Dahlia Lounge, Waterfront ($$), Steelhead Diner, Flying Fish, Tulios, Six Seven at the Edgewater all can handle that. I've done private parties at all but Steelhead and have had great experiences.
We held a private dinner at Tulio's last night and the food and service were top-notch. Any issues were handled with a great positive attitude. The steaks, ahi and chicken all looked and tasted delicious.
Hales Ales is about, of course, Ales, and tends more to (quite good) pub-grub than fine dining, but they do a broad offering of comfortable food from their capacious kitchen and have a private room that can seat your party. Stop in for a beer, have a look at the facility and check out the menu.
