Orance County Recommendations for Special Event

sk8uno | Feb 18, 2013 07:24 PM

I am looking for restaurant recommendations for a special event in Orange County (think along the lines of an engagement party). Here is what we are going for:

-Not a sit-down meal. We are looking for something with an "open house" feel, where guests can come and go as they please over the course of a 2-4 hour window.

-We would like food (appetizers, or perhaps more substantial buffet food) and drinks to be served during the entire course of the event.

-We would like either a private room, or a sectioned-off area of non-private room.

-We will need some seating, but regular or bar tables will do. Most people will probably remain on their feet.

-Should be big enough for 90-120 people.

-We want to avoid chain restaurants.

-Price is somewhat flexible, but we can't go super high end (we won't be spending CUT prices, for example).

-We would like to keep it to Northern OC (Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Newport, Huntington, Yorba Linda, Brea, etc.), but we would be willing to go further for an outstanding venue.

-Type of cuisine is open.

Any ideas? If you need more info to make recommendations, let me know!
