My parents and I are starting to think about where to do a graduation dinner celebration for my graduation. We're considering a few options, including having it at home, but also the possibility of doing the dinner at a restaurant where we can rent out a private room or a garden, which I would love.

15-20 people. Budget TBD, but my sister's graduation dinner last year was at Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica, which has 30-40 dollar entrees, so once you add in appetizers, dessert and wine, I'm guessing 50-70 a person is fine. (And if it's just a touch over, feel free to suggest anyways)

It's a Saturday night in May.

Not pork or shellfish heavy, and must be able to accommodate vegetarian and gluten free diners. I'm a born and bred California foodie, and love the locavore, letting the ingredients shine for themselves Alice Waters style of cooking. Any sort of cuisine is fine, if it feels like a treat and the food is amazing.

Also, if it's on the quieter side, that would be ideal.

Comal's private room looks like a possibility, as does A Cote in Rockridge (although I haven't eaten there, how is the food?) Where else should we consider? While Berkeley/Oakland is preferred, it might be possible to do Marin or San Francisco.

Thanks!
