Birthday Dinner for 25

Any suggestions for a birthday (21 years old) dinner accommodating about 25 with no pre-set menu? Either Pasadena, Burbank, Valley or Santa Monica.

  1. Yard House is a good bet in Pasadena, as they've got an enormous room (and of course, a large selection of beer). It's a lively atmosphere perfect for a birthday.

      I like the YardHouse but do they take reservations? Also, the noise level.

    2. Ocean and Vine in Santa Monica. Their Large space can accommodate large parties. I had a very good dinner there last month. They also have a fun firepit where people can hang out and gather before dinner. Very good mixed drinks. I was there on a weekday, so it was pretty empty/quiet. Not sure what it would be like on a weekend.

      Can I ask about your concern about noise level? I would think that one wouldn't mind, and perhaps might even prefer, a rather boisterous atmosphere for a 21st birthday.
