Fine Dining with Banquet Room and Grand Piano? (Eastside)

So i'm helping to plan a wedding in June. The bride's brother is a concert pianist and is going to perform at the reception. Any ideas for restaurants with a grand piano, and a reception room for 75+ guests? The ceremony will be in Kirkland, so something close by would be great. Fine dining preferred, but at this point we're looking at all options. Please help!
I had the exact same issues when I got married (except I was the one getting married and the now-part-time concert pianist and was going to jam a bit with the hired orchestra during the reception). I think the closest you'll get is the Newcastle Golf Course, but the piano there is pretty sad.
I would focus on choosing the right restaurant and the food that they offer, then rent a good piano and have it delivered for the wedding. Professional concert pianists are usually pretty picky about their instruments, and most restaurants willfully neglect their already substandard instruments.
