birthday dinner in Sonoma County for a group of 8

Which restaurant would you recommend?
Continental, Mediterranean, American or Californian would probably work best with our group.
I'd prefer to keep the dinner to around $75/person or less, although we might be up for spending closer to $100/person for a special restaurant. I would also like a place that isn't too noisy on a Thu night.

I've been to Willi's Wine Bar, which I think would be a little too loud for this particular dinner, since I found it a little too loud to converse for our table of 4 on my last visit. Is Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar in Healdsburg as loud as the Wine Bar in SR?

We've had group dinners at the Vineyards Inn several times, so I'd prefer a different place for this dinner.

How has Starlight in Sebastopol been lately? It doesn't seem to be mentioned frequently.

Quite a few restaurants that are more frequently recommended on CH, such as Farmhouse Inn, don't seem to take reservations for groups of 8 through Opentable. I also realize, some restaurants are on the smaller side without tables for groups of 8, or may be mostly set up to seat couples and 4-tops. I realize I can start calling long distance for reservations, but I'd like narrow down my search before I start calling.

Thanks for any ideas.
