Paris dinner for 40! Help

Looking for a delicious, but not crazy expensive or trendy restaurant, preferably with a private room for a celebratory dinner. Any and all suggestions appreciated!!

  1. Try La Grande Cascade. Expensive but not crazily so (at least by Paris standards). Logistically a little difficult because it's in the Bois de Boulogne... you might need to hire a coach to get everybody there. And sometimes very difficult to book for groups... i.e. October = Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend at Longchamp, motor show, other trade shows/ exhibitions. But fab setting, perfect for celebrations.

    Can you give us a budget max per person ?

      "La Grande Cascade"
      Absolutely; we've done two "events" there, not ruinous.
      Also one at the Jules Verne
      There are threads elsewhere I'm not allowed to refer you to that discuss options and the Michelin has Private Rooms listed.
      But P. is right, the GC is wonderful; lights in the garden, food on the table, heaven in a glass.

    2. "Maceo" is central has a good private room upstairs and is not too expensive.

        ditto. clicked on this thread to say Maceo!

      2. An absolutely sublime gorgeous setting can be found at Le Dome du Marais. An historic building with the room situated under a glorious dome.

          I'm not so hot on its food after the change in chefs last May.

        2. Le Dome du Marais looked amazing! But they are already booked for that night :(
          Please let me know if you think of anything else!

            We suggested Maceo. Did you not like their offerings?

          2. Maceo looks good (and very appropriate as we are all music people) but they have not replied yet to my query. Fingers crossed.... but i feel i need to keep pushing forward.
