Need Costa Mesa area restaurant with private room for 25 or so

Have to plan a Friday night early December dinner for a group of 25. Don't live in OC so any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Private room is required. Pricing mid range, not high end.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Costa Mesa like the South Coast Plaza area Costa Mesa or Newport Blvd/17th Street Costa Mesa? Kind of food? Is Mexican okay?

      Near the fairgrounds is best. Mexican might work if it is really good.

    2. First place I would check is Scott's, right across from South Coast Plaza.

      1. Also Maggiano's near South Coast Plaza... In fact, they share the same parking lot.

          Scott's is booked. Will look into Maggiano's. Other ideas?

            I'm gonna offer Nesai in Newport. If you are saying "near the fairground"s, you are 5-10 minutes away. Food is exceptional and I know they have a room that would easily fit 25.


          1. Consider Bistango in Irvine. Only 5 minutes away from South Coast Plaza. Also...? Seasons 52 at SCP.
