Restaurants With Private Rooms in Berkeley

The time for graduation celebrations is approaching and I'm trying to find a delicious restaurant in Berkeley that could accomodate about 18 people. One with a back room or private room would be preferable. I'm open to any kind of cuisine or dining setting, from Irish pubs to fine dining. Hit me with your best shot!

  1. I see this doesn't seem like a very popular topic. :( I'll expand it to include restaurants in SF or oakland if anyone has ideas.

      18 people might fill the main room at Digs Bistro and be to many for the small side room. Riva Cucina has a separate area off the main room screened only by curtains.

    2. Perhaps the back patio room at A Cote? It's technically Oakland, but still quite close to Berkeley. Eighteen also might be a tight squeeze.

      My friend had her graduation dinner at Adagia. I'm not sure if there's a private room, but it can accommodate large groups and is quiet enough for conversation.

          Adagia does have a private room, but I'm not sure it'll hold 18.

        2. Venezia has a private room.

            We had a private back room at Pizzaiio.

              The OP asked for delicious food. Multiple reports suggest Venezia it not doing that presently.

              1. Part of the problem is your specification of Berkeley. If north oakland counts, the options go up. Like Soizic. I'm sure the clairmont would do something for you (also oakland). China Village is a sleeper choice - they'll set aside two big tables in their side area and give you privacy - but I think it's in albany.

                  Soizic is not in North Oakland, unless they've moved it recently. Were you thinking of somewhere else, or do you consider Jack London Square "North Oakland"?

                    Oakland, especially North Oakland should be fine.
