Long Beach: Trachts or Da Vinci or L'Opera


My company is hosting a large dinner event in Long Beach and I was considering Tracht's, Da Vinci, and L'Opera as the venue.

I'm fairly comfortable with any one of the above restaurants for food selection but I was wondering if anyone had opinions as to which would be more ideal as to semiprivate/private rooms, parking situation, views, overall atmosphere.

The party will be for approx 100 people.

  1. Tracht's doesn't have much of a room, let alone a private one, it's just divided from the lobby of the Renaissance. Still nice, but it's right in the open. They also have patio dining, but then I'm not sure that would suit you either.

    Here's a pic of the room here:

    1. it's true that tracht's dining room doesn't seem very divisible, but it is in a major hotel and i'm sure they could set something up. as far as the food is concerned, there is absolutely no contest between tracht's or the other two.

        Just to clarify, do you mean Tracht's is far superior?

            Agree with Fed. Tracht's all the way.

      2. Yes for Tracht's, Da Vinci is horrible and I have never been very impressed with L'Opera either. I have not been to Tracht's but I have heard nothing but good things.

          Thanks for your comments. I didn't know that about Da Vinci's.
