Looking for a place to have a small birthday celebration (6 to 8 people) for sunday supper. Any area.

    "Any area," is a start, but it helps to post preferences, dislikes, price ranges, ambiance, etc. A party of six to eight would work just about anywhere!

    I can start by mentioning a couple of places that would appeal to many and have been recommended recently in similar threads by poster Westside Gal. Houston's and Cafe Del Rey. Both score high on quality, nice ambiance, and service. Cafe Del Rey scores higher in all categories IMHO, and has a broader more eclectic menu. They've also had a nice happy hour deal going for a while now, and their bar and happy hour menu is very good.

    I very recently found out from Westside Gal's post on Houston's that they apply no corkage fee if you bring your own wine. If that is a consideration on your part, that's huge.

      I'm looking for more of a prix fixe dinner along the lines of Marche or Lucques

        I think for prix fixe, you're on target. Why not go to either or?

            Joe's Restaurant on Abbot Kinney in Venice has or at least had a very reasonable 3-course prix fixe at $45. I say has or at least had because I haven't been in a long time and I've read sporadic comments about Joe's that haven't been positive. I know they've had some turnover in the chefs department - maybe that's why. I did see a few of the staff who seemed to have jumped ship for some reason and ended up at Axe less than a stone's throw to the north.

            Dominick's does a Sunday night prix fixe that's a great bargain.

          Have you been to Eva yet? It has a $35 Sunday family style dinner (3 courses [really 4 since there are two entrees provided]] including wine) that changes every week. The place is on the small side but I have seen groups of 6-8 on the back patio.
