need a quiet nice place to celebrate an 80th birthday

Hey all you foodies!

I need some help in finding a nice restaurant to celebrate my dad's birthday. Kincaid nice, but it needs to be able to handle a party of 21. Party needs to be June 25. So I got to press a button soon.

Thanks for all your help!

    I should add...my dad is hearing impaired so a quiet place is a must. I am open to Mpls area and also St. Paul restaurants.

    Looking at around $40 a plate before drinks. Thanks for your time in this!

        What about Kozlaks ? (I hope I spelled that right...). I think they also have private rooms.

        The Lexington? Don't know about a private room, but the food is good and it should be quiet enough.

          The Lexington has a private room behind the bar. It would work out well.

        Red Stag and Mission both have banquet rooms, if I recall correctly, and both are pretty quiet.

          Sorry to sound like a broken record (since I mentioned this in another post) but Grand Cafe is lovely and has a back room that can handle a party that size. My husband threw me a surprise birthday party there one year- we had around 25 and they worked with him to provide appetizers, a limited menu and wines. It was great.

            The Oak Grill on the top floor of Macy's downtown Minneapolis is quiet and great for private parties. They also have delicious popovers with honey butter and other comfort foods that seem to fit in with the 'regal' old crowd. Plus, they will validate parking in their ramp after 4 pm.
