60th Birthday Celebration (SEA)

Hi all,

My dad's 60th birthday is coming up in March and my mom and I are trying to come up with a fun place to have a party. I am not 100% sure how many she would like to invite, but as most will be coming from Port Orchard to Seattle, I would estimate no more than 25-30.

I am fairly familiar with Seattle restaurants but haven't been able to think of a really great place that we could have the party. We did my college graduation at La Spiga, which was really fun (in the old location) but I am a little wary of their service as of late and I don't want surly staff to ruin his day.

Money isn't a huge issue, but we really aren't looking for a fancy 5 course meal. Just a nice dinner, (shared family style dishes rather than individual ordering would be fine), with good drinks as well. A private dining area would probably be ideal given the crowd.

If anyone has any ideas for me, please let me know, and thanks in advance!

  1. I read somewhere on this board that Cremant has a private cottage for groups.
    Here is link to a list of private dining rooms:

    1. I know it doesn't get rave reviews on here.... but Volterra has a beautiful private room.

      1. six seven at Edgewater Hotel has nice private dining room, suits a good range from the young to the 60's

        1. The Wild Ginger has lovely private banquet rooms on their upstairs level. This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle and the service is always excellent. I have been going there since it originally opened 17 years? ago down on Western Ave. and still look forward to every trip I make there. I recommended a friend who books meetings for her CEO's and she said they really enjoyed it and have used it again. Another plus is they have valet parking.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions so far!
