I am planning on getting married in a year and am looking for a private dining room for ~80 guests, preferably with enough room for some dancing.
I've read some of the past threads, but they seem focused on SF or much bigger groups. I will be getting married in Berkeley and most of my guests will be from out of town, so I *really* don't want to make them drive far or across the bridge. Another issue is that one of the relatives owns a stake in a winery and another a brewery, so we are looking for a place with very low corkage.
I'm not a big fan of tradition wedding reception menus (shark fin soup, etc.) but I want delicious non-Americanized Chinese food. Anyone have experience with restaurants that are accommodating regarding the menu?
