    The Tavern at Granite Links, perhaps?

      As suggested, Granite Links is a very nice venue for this type of celebration. I have been there for a number of functions retirement etc. If you are there during daylight hours the views are gorgeous. That said, service while efficient tends to be a little amateurish.
      Another option might be Port 305 at Marina Bay. While I haven't been for a function, the food is good, they have great views and a function room upstairs.

        It's inquiries like this that remind me that after all these years Venezia hasn't kicked it up. Location, location, and pedestrian venue in every other regard. Sorry, that doesn't really help, other then perhaps confirm that they haven't made over this old place with a view.

          Granite links food has improved a lot. Some selections are pretty good.

          I would never call the dining room romantic, but on a clear night the view is unbeatable.

          Venezia, not so much...

            Port 305 and Siro's at Marina Bay do a very good job with small functions. Their food is quite good and they know how to provide professional service. Prices are fair and the view is great.
            Enjoy,

              We had my Grandmother's 90th Birthday at one of her favorite restaurants, Inn at Bay Pointe in Quincy. I think we had about 50-60 people in a private room and it was moderately priced.

              We also were recommended Granite Links and Common Market, both also in Quincy.

                Inn at bay Pointe has a lovely function room with water views. The food is good if not special and service is good. I've been to a few functions there and enjoyed it. For me though it doesn't feel special.
                Common Market definitely has rooms to accommodate various size groups. Functions are a huge part of their business. Most people who live in Quincy have probably done a function at common market. I was once there 3 times in one week!! They are very well organized and accommodating with their menus. One function I went to they did surf and turf (filet and lobster tails) and it was delicious. For me it doesn't feel romantic though. It feels mor like dining in someone's lovely dining room.
