Where's a not loud but not too fancy place for a group birthday dinner?

i'm looking for a place for a party of 10-15. a private room isn't necessary but welcome. i'd love a quieter place where we can actually hear one another talk! thanks!!

    think about Chinatown - check boards to see what's good these days.

      This was from October 2009; party has come and gone.

      Try also Blue Ribbon Bakery or Alta.

        Try Tia Pol (tapas), Le Zie (Italian), Safran (Vietnamese). The food is good, inexpensive and they all have private rooms. Too bad Adaro (Pan-Asian) closed down. Don't know if Ise or Riki (Japanese) can accommodate your group but check them out as well. Better yet come to Astoria or Long Island City. We have a lot of great restaurants in the neighborhood. Good luck.
