I'm getting married at the end of August and it's time for me to start looking into rehearsal dinner planning. My wedding is being catered by Il Fornaio, so I would prefer a non-italian restaurant for variety's sake. Also something along the same price and quality of food is ideal, because I don't want the rehearsal dinner menu to outshine the wedding dinner menu.
I would love something with a patio to enjoy the warm August evening - ideal, but not required. My primary preferences are reasonably priced, a nice indoor/outdoor space for 25-30 people, and within a short drive away from the Santa Clara University campus (10 minutes or so at most) from 101 or 280/880/17.
Thank you in advance!
