Please help..............
My wedding is in upper Georgetown and looking for a inexpensive wedding venue/restaurant (under 70 dollars per person including drinks). I have 60 people and 15 kids all under 8 attending the wedding and reception. Will drive into MD or VA. Any suggestions?
Thanks :)

    Clydes in Gallery Place and Tyson's have rooms and menus that will suit your needs.

      I have heard good things about Maggiano's across from Mazza. They are set up for what you are looking for. You might also look into Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda. I am not sure about the $s for either place.

        How about Sequoia? If you're careful with the menu selections, you might get in that budget range.

          No, no, no, no! Sorry Steve...but outside of the view, I think it would be a waste of money to hold your wedding reception there considering the food is highly mediocre at best.

            For the most part, Elyssa is right, but if you are lucky enough for the moon and stars to align, you can have a good experience there. But I admit, maybe not worth the risk of a bad meal just to have a nice view.

              Thanks Steve! The view is amazing, but I would never consider Sequioa's for a reception its not worth the money.
