Are there good restaurants for small wedding & reception?

Hello Hounders,
I'm wondering if there are restaurants in the East Bay, SF or Marin where someone can both get married and have a tasty reception for 40-50 guests. Ideally, I would love to be able to serve cocktails to all the guests before the ceremony and have a very brief ceremony in a small attached garden or courtyard. Once the ceremony is done, simply turn around and enter a dining area where we can sit down and have an excellent meal among friends and family.

I would love to find such a place and hear people's suggestions. Thanks (and my fiance's stomach thanks you too)

      Sometime between May and September of this year, preferably a Saturday night.

    2. Plumpjack can do up to 32 sit-down and 75 standing. I've attended a few events here, but none since the chef change. Here's the .pdf for private dining,
      For larger scale, One Market.

      1. Fulfills several qualifications although not a restaurant per se.

        1. What about the Mountain Home Inn on Mt. Tam? I haven't eaten there so I can't vouch for the food, but the facility is nice, views unbelievable.
