Need recommendations for a group casual dinner on the Westside
We are planning to get together with a group of 7-10 people on Saturday evening (around 6 or 7pm). Ideally, we are looking for a casual place on the westside of LA or Westwood, Santa Monica, etc. But, we would be open to considering other areas. The type of cuisine is not as important as a place that has good food and is not too expensive. It would also be great if it's not too loud. Of course, the place would need to be able to accommodate our larger group. Any ideas?
