I need to choose 2-3 restaurants to host a series of work-related dinners in the Mountain View/Sunnyvale area in a few weeks. It will be a group of 10, including many out-of-towners.
I'm looking for restaurants that...
- Are nice-looking enough to make out-of-town guests feel well taken care of (doesn't need to be fancy, but not the time for the brilliant hole in the wall)
- Can accommodate a reservation for 10 people - and are ideally quiet enough to allow conversations
- Serve quality food
Based on my Chowhound research, my short list is:
- Amber India
- Sushi Tomi
- Napoletana Pizzeria
- Stein's Beer Garden for happy hour?
Any recommendations for places on this list to prioritize (or avoid) given these requirements? Anywhere I'm missing?
