My brother’s rehearsal dinner many years ago was at Olamendi’s, a Mexican restaurant.  I think it was the Newport Beach location, but I believe they also have restaurants in Dana Point and Laguna.  I’m not sure what the cost was, but I imagine it’s reasonably priced for the area.  I thought the Mexican food and theme was a fun counterpoint to the fancier wedding the next day.  The food and margaritas were really good, and the atmosphere was festive and relaxed.  Everyone had a great time.  Good luck!

I’ve eaten at all these places. The exceptional standout’s are BRU (so good), and House of Big Fish/ Beer, yummy food, not expensive. $50 per person at 30 guests will get you a decent meal and 1 drink, they will add an automatic service charge for that size group, keep that in mind. Also see if you can get a set menu with only 3 or 4 choices. Helps the budget. Good luck with planning.

BRU, Lake Forest
Luciana’s Ristorante, Dana Point
Cafe Mozart, SJC
Sunset Bar & Grille, Capistrano Beach
House of Big Fish & Ice Cold Beer, Laguna
Ocean Ave. Brewery, Laguna
Mare Culinary Lounge, Laguna

El Adobe in SJChas a great private room. The food is fantastic so long as you like Mexican food. I’ve been to at least 5 rehearsal dinners there.
