Looking for a (restaurant) wedding reception venue in LA

sheenn | Feb 16, 2011 03:47 PM

I'm looking for a restaurant (with great food) for a wedding reception in May/June. The hubby and I eloped in Vegas and want to throw a casual bash for close family and friends without the traditional wedding activities (no dance floor, cake-cutting, bouquet throwing, etc). We WILL be doing a slideshow (is this impossible for an outdoor garden lunch?) and am looking for a great setting for photos.

We are looking at about 50-75 people and want something intimate and not too busy/bothersome if we can't take over the entire restaurant.

Location: Looking at Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, WeHo, or as far as Pasadena and north OC if the venue is good.

Some places that we are looking into are:
The Wilshire (Highly recommended in past reviews but that was 3 years ago. Is this still a good venue for an event?)
Inn at the 7th Ray
Cafe Pinot

All reviews/ recos I find seem to be at least a few years old. Any suggestions from fellow chowhounds would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!!

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