Seeking a twin city gem for party of 16

Hello Chowhounds. I am looking for recommendations for a lovely dining experience for a party of 16. The majority are in from out of town. My goals are great food (preferably local, see below), charming atmosphere (not a board-room setting), reliable service, and main courses in the $16-$30 range.

I am nearly devastated that Grand Cafe is closed on Mondays - the night of this event. Other restaurants I typically consider worthy of these goals are Tilia, In Season, Al Vento and Rinata, Trattoria Tosca, Cafe Le Vain, and the one I am leaning towards now - Cafe Vin.

As you may gather from that list I live in SW Mpls, but anything from Eden Prairie to Downtown Mpls is fair game for location.

Thanks for any advice.
