Rec for San Mateo/Burlingame Dinner for 12
I've been asked to research suggestions in this vicinity for next Tuesday. The requirements beside the group size are: some of our diners are not too adventurous, so we'll steer away from the Asian options, (which saddens me), menu must feature beer and wine with cocktails a plus and our budget maxes at $50/person.
Does anyone have an opinion of Spiedo in San Mateo?
Thanks for your input!
My current favorite restaurant in San Mateo is Osteria Coppa-I don't know how they would do with a twelve top but if the menu interests you call them and ask. Broadway Prime is a fine Prime Rib and steak house-but again call and check with them about a party of 12. Kincaid;s Bayhouse has great, great views of the bat and good food and could certainly handle a 12.

Avoid Spiedo - some of the worst Italian food I've ever had. Most of the places I know in that area are outside your parameters, though.
Tannourine may work for you. They have a lovely space... You wouldn't except such a nice space on 25th street. The only concern with them would perhaps be that the wine and beer list is not very large, but you could definitely get a few nice bottles of wine.
We went on Thursday and had a great meal with fantastic service. I don't know why they don't get much mention on this board... For some reason they are pretty empty during the week (they are packed on Saturday when they have belly dancing). They make their own yogurt (and it is amazing) and the some of the best baba ghanoush I've ever had. We also got the Meat Shawarma and the Sambousek which were both fantastic. We couldn't decide what wine to get, so the waitress ran off and came back with 3 large taste. We have had great food and service every time.
