Looking for downtown recommendations
I'm traveling to LA in a few weeks and hosting a dinner for 8-10 clients, all women, some vegetarians. We are looking for a fun ($$ to $$$) atmostphere, not too loud, good cocktails, great food.

PDC being a good "middle of the road choice" may well depend on whether the "vegetarians" in the group get squeamish if they see and smell giant hunks of cooked cow being carried about them, wafting and presenting grilled flesh odors to their delicate olfactory and sight sense organs at close range... ;-D>
I like Roy's downtown. I don't know about the veggie options on the menu, but the 3 course prix fixe menu is one of the better deals IMO, and they have a whole variety of tasty cocktails.
Many more options than there were just a year ago: Chaya, as noted, Rivera (sleekly modern Mexican cooking and great cocktails), Drago Centro, although it may be at the high end of your price range, and possibly Lazy Ox, although it might be on the high end of your noise range. If you're not going on the night of a Lakers game, the Wolfgang Puck Grill in the L.A. Live complex might be a good bet too.
