Rehearsal Dinner Coconut Grove Area... need help

I am trying to help out my Aunt (her son is getting married) out. She is looking for a place to have a rehearsal dinner for around 30 people in the Coconut Grove area. Something with a private room maybe...? The wedding is at the vizcaya so I guess it is going to be a pretty fancy pants wedding. Any thoughts or info would be wonderful!

  1. Calamari is probably your best bet. Its nice, has good food, and has the space to comfortably hold 30 guests. unfortunately, most places in the grove are on the small side. I imagine thats part of the charm.

      The attached wine bar, la Bottega, has a cool wine cave for private dining. (Calamari may serve food there too)

      Gibraltar at Grove Isle Hotel may work too

        La Bottega is part of Calamari, but you could see about holding it in that space as well.

    2. You should also consider Bizcaya at the Ritz.

        the Ritz on Key Biscayne could work too

          Yeah, the last party there was so good the roof caught fire and burned the whole place down hahaha!

      2. Thank you so much for your help. I will pass it along.

          Perricone's Marketplace & Cafe is reasonable and pretty.
