Looking for Boston Restaurant for Grad Dinner

My son is graduating from MIT on Friday June 5. Coming from San Francisco, we are pretty food-savvy and looking for a nice dinner spot for 8 that's got great food and is not too noisy. French, Italian, seafood all possible. $60-$70 a head with wine is the rough price range.

Thanks for any and all input.

  1. You may want to do a search as this question is often asked. However, my first choice would be Prezza in the North End.

    1. For seafood you have two great options: B&G Oyster in the South End or Neptune Oyster in the North End. They should fit in your price point just fine.

        neptune doesn't take reservations and fitting a party of 8 on a summer friday would be a pipe dream. unsure of the b&g rezzie policy, because i'm a hater.

        i like prezza; hammersley's, sel de la terre, and troquet could also fit the op's price point.

        1. Both B& G and Neptune are good but not a places I would go for a celebration with a group as they are very small and casual. Sorellina in Copley Square is a beautiful restaurant with great food and service (Italian). WE have done groups of 8 there and it was perfect. Also it is not noisey.
