Trouble with groups is that so many places try to insist on a set menu and/or deposit....
Somewhere with a bit of atmosphere...that is actually not easy. Leftbank? Though I must admit I've not eaten there of an evening and is prob also expensive. Traders? Not a personal fave but always good for the old cocktails and does also have a band. There're some restaurants at the new one to one hotel. I went to the Asian which was hit and miss to say the least but decent Chilean sauvignon blanc was only 60dhs!! Yes, 60!! The steak restaurant is supposed to be good there.
What kind of group is it - mates/work...?

18 year olds, lads and lasses, oh and a few oldies as they like to call us.
Needs to be a restaurant rather than a bar set up due to their age.

Traders might be an idea, although its too bleeding dark in there.

Bambu? Cheap & cheerful but should keep everyone happy (as long as nobody needs to use the loo).
The Noodle House at Shangri La?

Well yeah exactly - it was really expensive. But on top of that, the steaks were crap and the service terrible. So I wouldn't be rushing back.
