Restaurant suggestions for untraditional wedding reception

downtowndweller | Nov 6, 2009 09:26 AM


I know the questions been asked a hundred times on this board and I've read most of the replies but am still looking for some suggestions. We're looking for a restaurant to have a wedding reception for 80 people. Maybe we shouldn't even call it a wedding reception but more a private dinner party. We don't want dancing or a DJ nor anyone on a microphone making introductions as we enter. We're looking to do a nice cocktail hour and a quality dinner; maybe a few speeches here and there but fairly cut and dry. We're looking for something in the Downtown or Hollywood areas of Los Angeles. I'd be open to the westside but am more of a downtown dweller.

We've been to Cicada, have an appointment at Campanile and Gordon Ramsey's at the London. Didn't like Cafe Pinot and weren't too thrilled with Michaels. City Club was OK but nothing that blew us away. Our budget is around 15-20K. We'd prefer a place where we can have the whole restaurant and not just a private room. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Cafe Pinot
700 West Fifth St., Los Angeles, CA 90071
