Im looking to have an engagment party somwhere in LA. Preferably with a nice view. We'd like to be outside on a patio or deck.

The only place I can think of that is like this is castaway restaurant in Burbank.

Even if there's a restaurant that allows you to BYOB would be great. Nothing too fancy

Can be anywhere in LA

    Maybe call the Getty Center?

    Or the Trump Golf Course?

      could you clarify a few points:
      what is "nothing too fancy?"
      what is your price point?
      how many people will be attending?
      this should help with responses :)

        price point: 25$ a person for food

        ideally just cocktails and apps.

        people will be coming and going throughout the night, so somewhere that has a lot of space on a patio or deck for people to mingle, etc.

          "people will be coming and going throughout the night, so somewhere that has a lot of space on a patio or deck for people to mingle, etc."

          Any place you end up doing this at is going to want a total head count, both to come up with your final cost and to figure out how much food and plates/utensils/tables/linens/ they will need to supply.

            Sounds like you are looking for a bar where you can get nibbles and hold court in an area while your friends come and go. I love the bar at the Standard downtown, and it would be a hip place for this sort of thing. It does get crowded, especially late, and I think they turn it in to a club on weekend nights, so you need to check and make sure that your friends can actually get in if they show up late-ish.
