Private dining for 30 in Bergen County

We are planning a post-baptism lunch for approximately 20 adults and 10 kids in Bergen County.

* Looking for something with a private or semi-private space.
* Prefer pretty/warm/rustic decor, but since we have lots of kids nothing considered fancy.
* Kid-friendly menu - probably American or Italian preferred.
* Price less than $30/per person, would be great if there was a kids menu as well.
* Within a short drive of Ramsey.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  1. I have mentioned before that we hosted a few events at Biagio's in Paramus and really enjoyed it.
    Another option is Valentino's in Park Ridge.
    This is just a copy and paste from their website. They will probably work with you.

      I agree about Biagio's. Unfortunately I've been to two funeral lunches there in the past six months, but they were very accomodating both times. The food was good also, much better than I was expecting.

    2. Check out Madeleine's Petit Paris in Northvale. True, it's a nominally French restaurant, but we had Thanksgiving dinner there and the food was delicious and reasonable, with lots that kids would eat (we had two under 10 with us). They have a banquet room that could accommodate you.

        1. Pizette Italian Rest. Ramsey on Main, Roxannes in Mahwah on Franklin Tpk., Spasso in Cresskill, a little far, but they have a private room and do a good job. Good Luck.
