We had our rehersal dinner at Bistro Bella Vita.  My Fiance and I did a prix fixe menu and included coffee, soda, etc.  Guests could purchase alcoholic drinks from the bar.  My Father-In-Law paid for the rehersal dinner, so that was a request on their part.  The meal consisted of a salad, entree, and dessert.

Bistro Bella Vita was great!  You could even do just pizza and beer if you wanted.  They do have a private room, but we opted for an area up near the front window.  It was a great dinner!

what about Tre Cugini? We looked at doing our reception there, but for 150 ppl it was a bit out of our price range. Great atmosphere though! (and they have a normal dining room, not just the huge room for banquets)

Curious.  How did she get a bad vibe from the website? 

Anywho. Are the Father-In-Law paying for rehersal dinner?  There are a couple other options that are nice, but a wee bit more expensive….. Louis Benton, The Chop House, 1913 Room, Charley’s Crab, Leo’s, One Trick Pony, & San Chez (my fave).

oh man, San Chez has been on my list of places I want to try when I’m in GR for a while… I’m so rarely in GR though!

seriously!?

I wish we had known about that….  San Chez probably would’ve been at the top of our list if we’d been able to get them at 50% off! And I would’ve been fine with a Friday wedding.

*sigh*

Life moves on.

I’m doing my rehearsal dinner at McFadden’s – they have a private room on the 3rd floor. It is very reasonable and you should be able to stay at that cost for 25-30 people. The coordinator there is very helpful. HTH!

My fiance’s sister had her rehearsal dinner at San Chez last year.  It was delicious and such a blast.  I’m not sure about the price tag for it but def worth checking out
