"Fancy" Chinese Restaurant in Seattle?

Well, first we tried Ocean City (Ocean Palace?) right across the street from Kinokuniya. I had been there years ago and I remember them having a real old school dining room. Well, the hostess informed us that the room was now a bar and that we were welcome to eat in the dingy little takeout section right next door. As we were leaving, she offered to sit us in the bar but I wasn't feeling it by then. My daughter was getting hungry so we just ended up going to Fortune Garden,which I'd never been too. They had pretty good food, but pretty lousy but friendly service. I've managed to avoid saying "Salted Fish Fried Rice" out loud in front of my daughter for years (and it's one of her favorites) but our server was gracious enough to make a big deal out of me ordering it, mentioning over and over that it had salted fish in it and smelled really bad but tasted good, lol. Oh well, it was a successful birthday. Thanks for all the suggestions!

"Fancy" Chinese Restaurant in Seattle?

Today is my daughter's 10th birthday and I'm looking for a nice Chinese restaurant in Seattle to celebrate it in. I am very familiar with all the great Chinese food here, but it's mostly found in dumpy little spots. So, I'm looking for a place with a really nice,pretty dining room. Don't care too much about the food, my daughter has pretty bad taste in food thus far (sweet and sour chicken,chow mein,etc.). Any suggestions?
