Best Seafood West Hollywood to Santa Monica

I had actually found Rustic Canyon and tentatively booked there--anyone care to compare Rustic Canyon menu and experience to Hatfield's?
All interesting suggestions--I am from Boston so familiar with typical seafood restaurant. Hoping for a place that prepares fish well and creatively in a more luxe setting with good wine. Should have said "fish" instead of "seafood."

upscale dinner anywhere in LA

Surprised and sorry to hear that. We are very selective diners, have eaten in many great restaurants in London, Paris, New York, and LA have never had a bad experience at CUT, most recently this month.

If you enjoy steak, you cannot go wrong at CUT (and I am bored out of my mind at most steakhouses). For fun, food and consistency, our overall favorite restaurant in LA for several years running, and we've eaten at Melisse, Lucques, AOC, etc. Just thinking about the petit filet with pepper sauce makes me want to hop on a plane. Great vibe, wonderful hostess (Michelle). Was persuaded to taste the mac and cheese recently, which I had zero interest in, and I could not stop taking more bites. My adult son never passes up the banana creme pie for dessert.

Heading for Sun Valley Idaho next week. Logged onto Chowhound looking for restaurant suggestions, but only found postings that are many years old. Any updates on best options for good food and preferably adult ambiance?

Looking for 3 recommendations

Couple looking for 3 restaurants to try on a visit. Able to pay. Favor French but don't like stuffy old places. Wine lovers, but hate to overspend (have own wine cellar). One thing we would like to find is an upscale, comfortable restaurant that offers first-rate fresh oysters (don't want place that closes early and has sawdust on the floor).
With regard to restaurants, considering Quince, but ingredients look a little precious. Is it really good? Staying at Ritz--is that restaurant worth a dinner?
