in search of a round table!!!

hi all!
i have looked through some old posts in search of a round table for 7 or 8. i know that some places ( like la fonda del sol) have round tables for larger groups but we are looking to keep the prices lower than la fonda. as for food, the only real restriction is that we have a vegetarian in the group to consider. i was throwing around the idea of Korean BBQ (would forgo round table) but as a big meat eater I have never really paid much attention to veggie options. any thoughts?
also, a place that isn't super loud would be ideal. please let me know if i have left anything out! thanks in advance.

      Los Feliz has some round tables. Fun atmosphere, strong drinks and good food...just hope you have a tolerance for spotty service.

        Henry's at 105th & Bway. Round tables and noise level that comfortably accommodate our book club conversations. Reasonably priced menu wide enough to appeal to vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Hope you find just the right fit!

          Too bad the food is so pedestrian/mediocre.

          I had a celebratory dinner seated at a round table at Crispo on 14th Street. I think we were a party of nine. Everyone was very happy with their meal and the atmosphere.

              How big is the one round at Blue Ribbon Brasserie? I think it might be only 6 - and is the only table you can reserve at the restaurant.

                I was thinking about Blue Ribbon. I should call and find out! Thanks.

                Trattoria Trecolori has large round tables. We sat at one with 6 (on a couple of occasions) and there was plenty of room (both downstairs but moreso upstairs). There are quite a few vegetarian options. I highly recommend their ravioli special (which usually seems to be some veg variation). They are really good.

                  Grand Sichuan International Chelsea has round tables (they put a round table top over a 4top base. Perhaps the other GSIs do this as well.
