Starting my planning early, need advice; Sunday group lunch or dinner

Hello Chowhounds:

my stepmother and I have elected ourselves the party committee for my father's 80th birthday party, to be held in late August, and we would appreciate your help.

We are looking for a restaurant or other venue appropriate for a group of about 20 to 25, for either an early dinner or mid-aftenoon lunch (no brunch suggestions, please!), anywhere in the greater bay area, but preferably either east bay, SF, or north bay. (father and stepmother live in Glen Ellen, but most of the rest of the guests live in the bay area or south bay, with a few possibly coming from LA and of course sister Janet from Reno).

Parameters: private room or space preferred; outdoors would be lovely; must serve wine and have a decent list or a reasonable corkage; good food of course! Italian or mediterranean would be top choices, but all suggestions welcome.

Since he taught at Berkeley, we considered the faculty club, but they already have events in the rooms we I guess it isn't too early to start our planning at all. ideas?
