La Vara vs Isa vs The Elm vs Glasserie

I know this is a hodge-podge of restaurants, but they were chosen based on being able to accommodate a party of 7 for dinner. It's a reunion dinner for old friends, some visiting from out of town. All diners are adventurous eaters, and 1 person needs non-spicy options. Can anyone speak to the quality of the food at Isa post Chef Mattos? On the basis of food quality alone, which restaurant would you choose? What about on the basis of value (quality/price ratio)? Lastly, what's the noise level of these places? I'd like a place where it's not too raucous, we have a lot of catching up to do!
