good westside restaurant fun for a big group

i am in charge of organizing a group of old college friends for dinner in a few weeks. Probably 10-15 people, like to drink, dont need FABULOUS food, but i would prefer something good:) i thought about R+D kitchen in Santa Monica, but they only have tables for 4. Another suggestion was El Torito, but i'd like to get a little better than that. We are trying to stay on the westside...
Thanks for any good suggestions

    1. There's this really great Korean BBQ restaurant in Culver City. They have a back room with a large seating area for a party like yours. The service is phenomenal and the cocktails they offer there are amazing and different! The food is one of the best Korean restaurants I have been to (and I have been to many!). All the meat and veggies are very fresh. I know this would be a great fit for the amount of people you are looking to feed. Especially since Korean BBQ is great for big parties like yours. Here is their website:

      1. santino's in santa monica may fit the bill. argentinean tapas. they have a HUGE beer selection and a small wine menu. the food is good.

        1. Fritto Misto in Santa Monica. They have good food and a very small corkage charge.
