Help Hosting Family Reunion Dinner in Ginza

We are looking more for a nice authentic, down-to-earth dinner at a fairly modest (but nice) place serving Japanese cuisine.

Help Hosting Family Reunion Dinner in Ginza

One family member hosted us to dinner at Senbazuru at the New Otani Hotel and another family member hosed us to dinner at a fairly formal chinese restaurant. I imagine that Senbazuru was quite expensive and we will not be able to match it.

Help Hosting Family Reunion Dinner in Ginza

My husband, nephew, and I are traveling to Japan at the end of May for vacation. My husband has family (aunts, cousins, etc.) who live in Tokyo. The last time we visited was about three years ago and two different cousins hosted us to two different dinners at Tokyo restaurants. We would like to return the favor during this trip by hosting all the family to a dinner. There will probably be about ten of us, ranging in age from 14 to 74 years old. We are staying in Ginza so we are thinking of trying to find someplace near there but also realize that it might be one of the most expensive areas. We would like to spend approximately 5000 to 10000 yen per person, including drinks. We will also look to be hiring an interpreter since we speak very little Japanese and they speak very little English, so any recommendations in this area would also be most welcome.

Is the price range realistic for a nice dinner? Any recommendations on where to go?
