Looking for a good place for a small family group (8 adults) to gather for a couple of hours in late afternoon/early evening to celebrate an 85th birthday. Food doesn't have to be top notchreasonably decent will do, esp. as it's just accompaniment for drinks. Much more important is good, polite service and generally comfortable environment, including low enough noise level to allow for easy conversation.
Since event is planned for Sunday when traffic is not a factor, we would consider going beyond Westside for the right place, and in fact were wondering if Yamashiro, "touristy" as it presumably still is, might fit the billwould love to hear from anyone who's been there recently.
