He doesn't eat seafood which makes it a little harder but we have narrowed it down to:

harvest vine
cantinetta
restaurant zoe
mistral kitchen

any thoughts? we also have a party of 8!

thanks!

    Zoe or Mistral Kitchen. If your friend really likes meat, you may want to consider Quinn's in lieu of Zoe (same owner, cheaper, meatier).

      Following equinoise's advice is always a good bet. I can report, however, that I’ve been to Harvest Vine a few times recently, and the departure of Chef Jimenez de Jimenez does not seem to have had a discernibly negative impact on the food. That’s probably because Chef’s long-time right-hand man, Joey Serquinia, is still watching over things in the kitchen, as he did even during the reign of Chef Jimenez de Jimenez, during Chef’s many absences from the kitchen. I've also been enjoying the weekend brunch at H.V.

      I would take zoe off this list. Maybe add Spinasse instead. Luc might be fun.

        Ah, Spinasse! My current fave. I was limiting myself to the OP's list, but yes, absolutely, Spinasse rules!
