are you shooting a party with people or just the interior of the rooms in the restaurant. if it's basically the 4 walls of the restaurant and you have time just take a few pics and preview them. if they look good fine. if not, change white balance and exposures til you get the picture that you want. if it's a party with lots of people, ask the restaurant if you can come in and take some trial pictures with the lighting you'll be using at the same time of day. get the best quality you want and use those settings for the real job. i would recommend using the 17-35mm and/or the 28-70mm lenses.if it's photographing people use a flash too. if it's just the restaurant then use a tripod and longer exposure times.
i'm no pro and hope this helps. hopefully the people with experience and the same equipment will get on here soon to help ya.
