THE SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE
Other than the fact that the Wine Celler is now set at room temperature at dinner time and the Del Mar seats up to 45, they pretty much hit the nail right on the head.
Donovan's is the perfect place for parties.
One superb spot to plan your private dinner party or banquet is Donovan's, the rather stately first class steak house in the centrally located UTC area.
There are five separate private rooms to choose from, all beautifully appointed.
The Del Mar Room seats up to 44 guests and is private.
My favorite is The Wine Cellar, private for up to 14 guests, although because it is a working wine cellar, the temperature is set at 60 degrees, so dress accordingly.
The intimate Qualcomm Room is private and seats up to 10 guests.
Then there is the Old Town Room where you can seat up to 32 guests, and the Sports Room, semi-private for up to 20 guests.
You'll celebrate with exceptional entrees including a variety of prime grade steaks, sip exquisite wines from one of the best selections in town and be pampered by first class service because that's what Donovan's is all about...first class.
