Where to Have Work Holiday Dinner in CC?

Ten people, disparate interests and tastes. Menu must have steak and potatoes, but cannot be a steak house (Boss hates steak houses). We thought the Continental would be perfect but called and they don't take reservations for less than 15. Hostess (?) said we could wait in the bar for up to a half hour. It's hard to make conversation for the length of dinner. Places we've been previously: Fogo de Chao, Estia...on the table now are Roy's and Sotto Varalli...please help!

Cast of Characters:
Boss, foodie and has ultimate say.
Engineer, steak and potatoes guy, uncomfortable in a "fancy" place
Asst. Boss, doesn't like German or Indian
Accountant, will go anywhere
Office Manager, will go anywhere
Receptionist, probably won't show up
Me, avoid the chains, please
Lucky to Go One, will go anywhere
Lucky to Go Two, will go anywhere
Lucky to Go Three, will go anywhere

  1. It's a chain, but how about Oceaniare?

      oceanaire's probably too formal a place for what sounds like a small, casual office... for some reason, i feel like i should be waving a golden cigarette holder and wearing a fur coat every time i go in there. i like nice places, but it's a little to grand for me...

      1. Matyson would be perfect. It has steak frites. it is byo tho.

        1. Brasserie Perrier, Estia, Devon, Branzino? I reccomend against Roy's.

              I think it's really sub par overpriced chain food that is completley uninspired.
