Private dinner for 15 - ESK, Dante, Sorisso, Stella, Upstairs on the Square?

Looking for a private or semi-private room for up to 20 guests. Looking for something near a T station, comfortable, fun, celebratory, and for less than $100 per person. Currently waiting for quotes from Upstairs on the Square and Sorisso. I plan to contact Stella and Eastern Standard today. Any place else you recommend I consider? This is a kick-off celebration for a work project. If the budget is too low for dinner I'd consider cocktails and heavy hors d'overs. Thank you!

  1. We have had great experiences (service, food, room,etc.) with Smith and Wollensky for our office for this type of event for this size of group.

    1. Avila on Charles Street South, across from the Transportation Building has a couple of nice private rooms and easily reached for anyone downtown or by T. Might be a little too expense account-ish for your group, though you seem to be looking at some upscale places.

      One thing I will say about Stella is it is super noisy so if you want to do toasts, etc. that would not be my first choice unless they are willing give you most or all of the back room. Also, it is not really near the T, though it is on the Silver Line (bus)

      1. Banq has a beautiful semi-private space worth looking into.
