Peninsula baby shower location

Need a spot for baby show accommodating 20 people, preferably with good food. I could also have it catered, but looking for quiet restaurant or one with private rooms. From San Mateo to and including Los Altos.
Thanks everyone.

  1. The "adult patio" at Bumble is nice in Los Altos. I think they have other private spaces available. Food is ok, but the setting is cute and very child friendly

    1. Do you prefer brunch, lunch or dinner? And budget or cuisine?

        Good point - looking for lunch on a week-end. Any cuisine, any price. No children attending.

      2. I hosted a lovely baby shower at the restaurant at the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park and a friend who attended liked it so much, she did the same thing a year later and was also very pleased. In addition to a restaurant, the historic complex also has artist studios and beautiful gardens. The current restaurant, The Blue Garden Cafe, is run by different people than were there at the time of my event, so I can't speak to the current quality of the food. You could always go for lunch and check it out first. I was able to bring in my own bottles of champagne and they were happy to serve it. Once again though, it is a different caterer running the restaurant now, so don't know if that still applies. If the weather is nice, there is a back patio. Otherwise, inside there are two rooms, one of which can be used for small private events. It is a bit narrow, so if you don't like that, you can choose to be in the main restaurant, which is what I did. Since most diners there are those that are patronizing the artist studios, or strolling the gardens, it's not particularly busy, so being in the main restaurant worked out just fine for us.

        1. What about having it at the Rosewood Sand Hill? Food is decent and plated/presented well and a nice location (though may be pricey).
