Large group (20)/Birthday dinner

What are some good places in the West Hollywood/Hollywood area that have a fun atmosphere for a birthday dinner for a large group? Looking for something similar to Bella perhaps.

    Also, hit the bigger Eithiopian palces on Fairfax, always fun

    1. how much are you looking to spend?

      palms thai is fun.

      mouns of tunis or dar maghreb is a fun choice.

        i like emme's recs. i'll also add asia de cuba, bossa nova, and marix.

          asia de cuba is fun, but i wasn't sure about the budget!

            i know, but i figured i'd throw it in since the OP didn't specify any limits. besides, when everyone shares those ginormous family-style dishes they serve, it's not the food, but rather the ridiculous valet parking fee that usually ends up being the steepest charge of the night!

              I haven't been in years, but Barefoot on 3rd has an upstairs room and can put together a pre fixe menu for a large party.

              For more casual, there is Maggiano's at the Grove...but that is a chain...they also have a backroom and can do family style Italian.
