Looking for a birthday party venue in Yorkville

I'm trying to plan a last-minute (well, two-weeks out) surprise party for my mom's 65th birthday. She lives in Yorkville, and something walking distance would be ideal. (She has bad feet, so it should be within a couple blocks of Avenue Rd and Bloor.) I'm looking at around 15-20 guests, and am open to places that can do either a cocktail party or a sit-down dinner, but I would like there to be room for at least a little mingling - so a private room is best.

Oh yes - my mom is a foodie. :)

The first place I contacted was Pangaea. I know it gets mediocre reviews here, but my mom really likes it (and it's a block away!) However, they're a little out of our price range. The large room has a $2000 minimum, and the small room with the $1000 minimum only holds 14 people. $1000 is doable, but I would like to be able to invite more than 14 people for that amount.

The next place I tried is Carens Wine and Cheese Bar. They have prices starting at $38/pp for what looks like a really nice selection of hors d'oeuvres and meat and cheese platters, but their private room isn't available on my mom's birthday. :(

So now I'm stuck. Does anyone have any suggestions for a Yorkville venue? Something nice, but not too expensive?
