My dad's 60th birthday is coming up in March and my mom and I are trying to come up with a fun place to have a party. I am not 100% sure how many she would like to invite, but as most will be coming from Port Orchard to Seattle, I would estimate no more than 25-30.
I am fairly familiar with Seattle restaurants but haven't been able to think of a really great place that we could have the party. We did my college graduation at La Spiga, which was really fun (in the old location) but I am a little wary of their service as of late and I don't want surly staff to ruin his day.
Money isn't a huge issue, but we really aren't looking for a fancy 5 course meal. Just a nice dinner, (shared family style dishes rather than individual ordering would be fine), with good drinks as well. A private dining area would probably be ideal given the crowd.
If anyone has any ideas for me, please let me know, and thanks in advance!
