I think it’s totally fine.  As long as your group isn’t going to be really loud and ruin the night for other guests.  If I were a guest at the restaurant, I wouldn’t be bothered at all by having another table make a speech or two.

@seachange:  I have been to group functions in a restaurant that were not in a private room. To be honest, it’s not the best situation for either the group or the rest of the diners. Your group  will interfere with their enjoyment of a night out, and they will interfere with your ability to make speeches and present gifts.

We had our rehearsal at a restaurant but not in a private room. It was fine! We didn’t do speeches or anything, but we presented gifts and nobody in the restaurant seemed bothered by it. Honestly it was just like going out to eat except with more people!
