Private party for 100 in Dana Point
Does anyone have any ideas for places to have a good corporate event for 100 people somewhere in Dana Point (or within 10 miles)? It can either be sit-down or buffet-style. I have already checked out Salt Creek Grille and Cannons, but they cannot make it work for various reasons. The budget is about $35-40 per person. Thanks.
You might have to try the Marriott Cliffs.
Or, Ristorante Ferrantelli can probably meet your needs- they do a lot of large gatherings.
Maybe the Chart House (wince)?
its been quite a while, but went to such an event at the Wind and Sea...food was alright - they had buffet...the word i'm looking for is dated...e.g. sides were rice pilaf, the ubiquitous broccoli,zucchini,carrot thing...salmon was good. view and drinks are better than food.

Up the road (pretty sure within 10 miles) in Laguna Beach are two places that I've been to recently for 100+ people events: Mozambique and the rooftop at the Casa del Camino. Both were very good.
To be honest with you, we had passed hors d'oeuvres at both events, but I'm pretty sure they have sit down or buffet available.
