Las Vegas - Private Dining for 70-90 people

Hello! Our high school class has decided to hold our 15 year reunion in Las Vegas this year. I'm sure there are a million function rooms, but I'm afraid of getting stuck eating some crappy buffet and drinking cheap wine so I'm taking matters into my own hands and fining the venue myself. Can anyone recommend a really great restaurant with space to accommodate a group this size, preferably on the strip? We're a casual group and our tastes probably skew towards pan-Asian rather than European cuisine. Price isn't really an issue at this point, just trying to find a great restaurant that will do a great job with a group this size. Extra points if it's an outdoor or poolside venue. We're thinking an evening event; if it doesn't happen in May, then it will probably this fall. is this enough information to start? We're just beginning to organize now... any help is appreciated!

    One caveat as I'm not a Vegas local, so haven't tried many options around there (and have only been there once on vacation), but I will tell you about a great experience I have had there as far as event planning goes. I'm planning my wedding at the Wynn next October and have worked with the events coordinator for the after wedding dinner (at Daniel Boulud), and they have been exceptional! So nice, so accommodating and responsive! I know the Wynn has a ton of dinning options and I recall looking at one of their Chinese options for the rehearsal dinner. Our wedding is going to be 40-50 people, but I know they had venues that could accommodate larger groups. It might be pricey, but hey, no crappy buffets or wine there! Just can't say enough about how professional the planners there are.

      I would suggest picking the hotel first and then working with them to set up the dinner.

        There are so many different areas at Cafe Babareeba, including private and semi-private outdoor spaces, that they might be able to help you. It's got the kind of convivial but not crazy atmosphere that might work well for this kind of party. Some more information here: http://www.cafebabareeba.com/vegas/ca...

          We're doing a fairly large group dinner in May at Aquaknox in the Venetian/Palazzo. Haven't eaten there yet, so don't know how good it is, but they do have a private room.
