Need private dining room recommendation in San Diego on 5th Ave.

Hello All,
I am planning a party for 30-40 people and will need a place VERY close to the Marriott on 5th Ave. I have gotten a few recommendations from the Marriott but wanted to know what my friends on Chowhound think. .

Here are the places that were recommended:
Lou & Mickeys at the Gaslamp
Osteria Panevion

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Are you looking for something great or just something that will work?

    1. re: stevewag23 about both? Of course it needs to accommodate our group but I want something fabulous, if at all possible!


      1. re: Laziloo

        If you want something great, I would not go to any of the marriots suggestions.

        I need to think a little more for something great.

        1. re: stevewag23

          I think Jsix would be the best choice that is very close.

          Only question, I don't know is if they have a private room.

    2. You might want to check out Roys.

      1. Does Jsix have a private room? They are doing some pretty darn good food. You also may want to check out the Roy's, the food is consistently above average and some of the time can be great.

        1. Do you have a budget? Does the party need to be fancy, business-oriented or can it be something more casual?

          I'm asking because my thoughts wandered towards asking Neighborhood if you can rent out the restaurant for the night (it'll fit 30-40 snugly) and having a great dinner of good burgers and craft beers.

          1. skip Lou and Mickey's. My s.o. ended up there for a biz meeting and was embarrassed that the host chose that place for a high-level gathering.

            Donovan's is your best bet on your list. The UTC location does a great job for large dinner meetings.
