Dinner in Holllywood with Company Execs
Any suggestions for dinner for 17 company execs? Private room would be nice. "Hollywood" feel would be great for the out of towners.
Private Dinning Rooms:
Jack Warner Room - Pizzeria Mozza - Seats 18 - Bad news (maybe) Menu limited to high-end gourmet pizzas:
Right next door - Osteria Mozza - More traditional high-end entrees, also has the "Primo Ministro Room". Question: Can you get their menu served in the Jack Warner Room ?
Montage Hotel - Beverly Hills - Private dining room upstairs, 1 long board room table, dark wood, seats 24, with your own private balcony. Only opened 1 year, I've seen the p.d. room but haven't eaten there. It's described in the second paragraph below but it's "not" pictured:

re: New Trial
Second Campanile, and they have two private rooms on the second floor that would be just the right size. And it's located in Charlie Chaplin's old office building, so it's authentically old Hollywood.
You can't get much more Old Hollywood than Musso and Frank's ... the only downside is that they don't have private rooms.

cecconi's has privat(ish) rooms and a nice atmosphere. i actually really liked the food too, although they had overbooked the night we went (also for a business dinner) and we ended up waiting an hour at the bar for our table. hopefully they have overcome those opening kinks- but I'm guessing in the private areas that wouldn't be a prob anyway.
What about the wine room at RH @ the Andaz. Its right on the Sunset Strip and is sleek. Very good french food that won't break the bank
BLT Steak on Sunset has an amazing private room with a terrific view of the city lights. Great steaks and execution. To be honest I think it's a shame that it is being overlooked by it's more 'Hollywood' rival down the street at Boa. Close enough to several spots for a drink if the night continues. Boa will actually have more of a younger, later Hollywood scene but I do not know about their private rooms.
Campanile is always great, and their upstairs rooms are terrific if a private room is truly needed. However, the experience of a smaller dinner on the patio by the fountain is just so much nicer.... As much as I love Campanile, it to me is the ultimate jewel of a neighborhood restaurant. Excellent drinks from Felix the bartender and the food is so consistently solid. But for the better, other than it being Charlie Chaplin's very interesting studio you won't get much of a Hollywood vibe.
Never done the private room at Mozza Pizzeria, but I have peeked in and it looks like it could be great fun with the right group. I believe there is (or used to be) a hefty minimum to reserve the room. Beer and wine only.
The Providence Chef's table seats no more that around 6 comfortably. They do however have a private room past the bar that could be spectacular for a real foodie indulgence. Not much of a 'scene' there but the food will be superb.
On that note, if you are going big ticket-foodie, Melisse has a very intimate private room that will fit the group. It's far from Hollywood in Santa Monica, but has some of the best food around (especially now with the white truffles).
Lastly, for the -ultimate- BIG ticket experience.....take over Urasawa for the night! ;)

I had a lovely "industry" dinner last year at Asia de Cuba at the Mondrian in West Hollywood. Pre-dinner drinks were served at Skybar, and we were moved to a lovely table set outside of the Phillipe Starck-designed restaurant. Dinner was quite lovely...wonderful meat and vegetarian dishes...great wines...all with a view of L.A. from the Sunset Strip. Not a bad night.
