if you’re okay with family style, look at maggiano’s in chevy chase. very reasonable prices and they have private rooms of all sizes.

ooh ooh, I would try LIAs in Chevy Chase. It’s a Chef Geoff restaurant, the food is very good, and the atmosphere is nice. If you’re looking more for a place in DC, The Front Page is always a good place. I went to a rehearsal dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill in DC, and your guests might really like the history there. It can get expensive if you do sit down, but she had passed apps and I was plenty full! another thought is the restaurant Dinos in Cleveland Park. MM I’m getting hugry now. Good luck!

I tried to post before but WB kept crashing on me!

I recommend Filomena.  Italian in Georgetown, a more “DC” feel than the others which are national chains and they can definitely seat that many within that price range.

I second Maggianos and Filomena too! Also try OYA in Chinatown http://www.oyadc.com/ they have a cool side(ish) room that would be perfect for a rehersal dinner.

I know that Dino has a minimum.  We wanted our rehearsal dinner there, but FI’s mom said no because we’d have to have it earlier in the evening, but they have a great second floor private room.  There would be a $$ minimum though. 

Lia’s is also an excellent choice!  Great restaurant.

I went to a rehearsal dinner at Buffalo Billiards in DC (dupont circle).  It was central, easy to get to (metro accessible) and a had a unique, relaxed feel to it which was a nice change since the actual wedding day was super nice.  The guests were laid back and having fun, played some games like ping pong and pool… I think it helped people mingle and get to know each other, it was a nice distraction.  They had a slideshow of their relationship on a projector and we ate from a catered buffet (the food was surprisingly very tasty!).  We were in a private room and we had our own bar.  I’m looking into this place for my Rehearsal dinner next year!
