Westside for eight
Looking for a fairly inexpensive (under 20 pp) restaurant for 8 co-workers in S M or Venice or West L A. Anything except Mexican or Chinese. Not too loud please
shamshiri grill on westwood blvd.
very good persian food
great price/quality/quantity ratios
a real restaurant, not a dive.
they will get testy, though, if you want to split entrees, so plan on taking food home with you.
When you say "under $20 pp" is that after tax and tip (what about drinks?)?

Another fairly inexpensive place in SM for your group would be Fritto Misto on Colorado.
601 Colorado Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Criteria = Westside, under $20 p/p, seating 8 together, Not Loud, & No Mexican, Chinese (*), or Persian.
Assumptions = Would prefer No Chains, not American (i.e. simple burger place), and something with some ambiance:
Italian - Westwood Village - Mio Babbo ~ Their prices are not on their website; however, based on a 3 year old menu, I count 32 entrees (that all come with house soup or salad) under $15. I think they can seat 8 in the round table by the window, or they can push tables in the center together that can easily accommodate 8 (check middle picture):
(*) accendentally put Italian origanlly.
