La Palette - Suited for special occasion?

Looks like we will be doing Le Select after all...I showed her the website because we're trying to pick a place for xmas dinner with our friends and her eyes lit up like a xmas tree and started busting out the French lol Let's hope for good service and experience.

For our friends, they chose Nota Bene since they can accomodate large groups and more acceptable to being loud. Crisp Duck Salad, we meet again =P

Thanks again all and apologies for being all over the place..

Thanks for all your suggestions and inputs. I think I will just save La Palette for a regular dinner because I do want it to be special but I definitely want to try their quack and track and check out their beer list one day!

I really do want to give Le Select a chance, but the reviews of inconsistency and bad services is scaring me away. Maybe save it for a summer brunch on the patio..

I'm probably just going to scrap the whole French thing because there aren't many options where there's 1. French menu 2. reasonably priced 3. decent/filling portions.

So I'm just going to go with plan B. Globe...great food, good price, and private/romantic. Can't go wrong =D

Thanks again everyone!

If La Palette's atmosphere is close to..say Weezie's, I think we can get away with suit/ cocktail dress.

I heard good things about Niagara Street Cafe and I've been to Nota Bene a few times (I know it gets tons of raves on Chow) but other then the Crisp Duck Salad (yum!) the rest of the menu and atmosphere never did much for me.

Also, I guess I should be more specific when I say "French". I'm looking for a place with a Fench menu because my s/o's a French teacher and it would make it more fun for her/us to school me on pronounciations.

Other options I looked at is Amuse bouche and Le Select, though reviews here are not favourable..agree?

Thanks!

Heard mixed reviews, but generally good.

My question is, we will be in semi-formal attire, will we be over-dressed for this quaint little restaurant?

I'm welcome to other suggestions as well. Wanted to do Celestin and Auberge du Pommier initially, but she kill me for spending that much!...not to mention the portions seem really small (she's a tiny gal, but man can she pack it in! <3 lol). So mid-range, value, atmosphere and French is what I'm looking for (Yes, I know it's a lot to ask for).

To save her sanity, I'm looking at $150 ish.
