Need help - restaurant for a Bday group

My Mom and Dad are from Ireland......they enjoy eating at Moran's in Chelsea. Its nothing fancy but steaks, lamb and seafood and the dining rooms are cozy. Look it up and see if it fits your needs. They are friendly and I am sure will be happy to accomodate. Nice bar too.

Group lunch (20-25), $50pp, women?

Trying to keep it to American-can have other influences-but would like seafood choices, though not exclusively. Prefer a private room so I can tailor the menu for the group. Lunch/brunch combo is fine.

Will be in December so looking for a cozy space.

The location doesn't matter, but want to stay away from big, informal restaurants. Had contacted Aqua Grill but looking for something a little more personal. Above all else quality.

Appreciate the help.

What are the most overrated DC restaurants?

Inn at Little Washington. Hands down. It is beyond me that anyone likes that place. I see nothing, NOTHING at all redeeming. Being foodies it was given to us as a wedding present. I wanted to like it so much and left feeling so disappointed. Thinking about having paid the entire $500 bill by choice just sent me over the edge. I hope anyone who is saving it for special occassion will consider the opinions here. Much better experience including food, decor and service elsewhere for 1/2 the price.

What are the most overrated DC restaurants?

My, I could not agree more. The minute we left I looked at my husband-who in all fairness had better luck than me-but still I looked at him and asked if he would even rate it as Top 10. It was certainly the most we had ever paid for dinner and it came no where close. And the decor....at $500 a couple you'd think they could spruce the place up a bit. I get country charm but it was beyond dated. We live in Charlottesville and have lived in Boston and NY, maybe we are spoiled but DC restaurants just don't do it for me and this was hte biggest let down of them all.
