        If money is truly no object, get the West room at Per Se. It is a bit large for a party of that size, but would be a truly memorable experience.

        Picholine has a private room that seats 22. The cellar at Dovetail seats 20, and is another good option, but 25 won't work. Telepan has a similarly-sized semi-private room that might work, though I would personally do dovetail before Telepan.

        I know Lincoln and Bar Boulud also have private dining space available, but I am unfamiliar with their options.

        Per Se
        10 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019

        72 W. 69th Street, New York, NY 10023

        35 West 64th St., New York, NY 10023

        103 West 77th Street, New York, NY 10024

        Bar Boulud
        1900 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

          Acc. to the website, Bar Boulud has three private dining spaces which can accommodate 16 (obviously a no-go), 20 or 40.

          Lincoln does not provide that info on their website. One has to call, fax, or email.

          The Leopard at des Artistes does private events but does not have any specifics on their website.

          1. re: RGR

            The private dining room at Lincoln would be too small since the maximum is 16 guests.


            Lincoln sometimes rents out the entire front dining area facing Avery Fisher Hall for private events, even for parties of 15 to 25.

            The West Room at Per Se might be too big. It also doesn't have any windows but yes, the experience would still be memorable.

            Jean Georges has a private dining room on a separate floor of the Trump hotel. Marea also has a private dining room on the lower level though I'm not sure about the maximum occupancy.

            If you're considering midtown west, Le Bernardin and The Modern will be able to accommodate you as well.

            Thank you for your responses! After checking out some prices, I need to revise my query, and say that I am looking for a reasonably priced private room for 20-25 on the upper west side for a friday nite dinner in October.

            1. re: julia a

              Reasonably priced means different things to different people. How much are you looking to spend per person?

              1. re: valerie

                Thanks for the clarification - i am looking for the next tier down from Lincoln, Dovetail, Telepan. Maybe $40-50 per person.

      2. Check out Cotta. They have two private rooms. The smaller of the two holds about 35+ people but could work for your group. I've been twice for dinner and enjoyed everything except a pizza. The pork and kale pasta dish was especially memorable. ask for AJ.
