Thanks, scoopG. I've been speaking with someone at Heartland. She says their smaller room holds up to 80 people and I'm worried that it might feel vast for a group of ~30. How was it for your group of 23?.

That's one I hadn't read anything about. I'll take a look. Thanks!

Seeking Mpls/St. Paul venue for party of 25-35 in mid-June

I live out of town and am looking for a restaurant in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area where I can host a dinner for 25-35 people on Wednesday evening, June 22. I’ve contacted several restaurants but haven’t booked anything yet. Thought I’d check here for additional suggestions.

General criteria:
Sit-down dinner for 25-35 in a single space (not divided between different dining areas)
Leaning toward French or American but open to other cuisines
Very good to excellent quality food ($20-30 entree range?)
Low background noise level is important due to a few guests with impaired hearing
Evening takeover of a smaller restaurant would be great if the space and food are right, but a private/semi-private dining room in a larger establishment would be fine too
Open to lesser-known/smaller restaurants if the quality is there

I appreciate any input local ChowHound folk can offer!
Many thanks in advance.
