What's the word on the chowhound street about this restaurant? I just booked dinner for nine there for the monkeyboyfriend's upcoming birthday. The original reason I chose the place was because it had private rooms (and the menu was reasonably priced), but you have to pay an additional $100 for the room, not including the food. Being a poor writer monkey, I had to forgo the private room and instead will subject other patrons to our party. But we're very subdued primates, not the kind who scream and laugh and go "WOOO!" like rejects from Girls Gone Wild. But if you are at Ca'Brea on May 25th, you will probably see me there.
My original plan was to dine at Rock, Rockenwagner's funkier, less-expensive offshoot. They have a "clubhouse" in the middle of the restaurant which would have been a great setting, but I was told by the management that Rock will be switching to an all seafood menu the night I planned on holding the party. At which point, the mbf determined that the food would be terrible (opening night of the new menu, large group of guests, bad combination), so we cancelled. It's too bad, because we have enjoyed Rock the two times we went, although there did appear to be a bit more snow (empty tables) that the proprietors would probably like.
So, kindly share your views of Ca'Brea, if you have any you'd like to pass along.
