Romantic place - dinner and dancing?

Are there no places in LA that have this?

I'm looking for a nice place for my husband and I. Good food, romantic environment (not a loud, boisterous place), with some nice live music for dancing? We live in the Encino/Sherman Oaks area but I don't mind driving out for the right place.

Any suggestions?

Valentino - private alcoves - recommended?

Hi, I am taking my husband out for his birthday. A friend recommended Valentino on Pico (Santa Monica). Specially the private alcoves. Can anyone vouch for this restaurant and the ambiance outside?

Thanks :)

Romantic spot for bday dinner

I am taking my husband out for his bday dinner on Saturday night. I'd like a nice, romantic place, with fabulous ambiance. He loves lobster, so that would be great (but we've already been to The Lobster, so don't suggest that!). A great steakhouse or seafood restaurant preferred.

What can you suggest? Something special. I'd prefer something on the westside.

Thanks!

Century City Restaurant for bday?

I need a restaurant for a small dinner celebration in the Century City area. Nothing too over the top, but something nice for a small family celebration.

Do you have any suggestions?

South Bay: Private Party, 100 people??

I am planning a private party for 100 people - it is our company's 10 year anniversary.

We want something fun & festive, with music and dancing, hopefully we can get some outdoor action. Our CEO likes good food and ambiance. For a point of reference, we have our annual holiday party at the Sky Room in Long Beach.

I'd really appreciate some suggestions!

Acacia Tucson; what do you think?

How is this place? Looks nice online.

I have a large party of 12 (work function) that I need to set a reservation up for.

If you have any other suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Elegant restaurant for large party (12 ppl) in Tucson?

Hello, I am planning a sales and marketing meeting for my company in Tucson, and need to make reservations at a nice restaurant on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Private room would be great. Steakhouse, seafood, Italian all work. Nice is important. Boss doesn't like Mexican.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

New cool spot for dinner tonight? WeHo area

My bad - this does not have to be a "new restaurant" - just a new idea for me. Thanks!

New cool spot for dinner tonight? WeHo area

Morning everyone~

I'm looking for a place to go out to dinner tonight with my husband and my parents. My husband and I are easy - my parents are more difficult. Restaurants they love are places like Le Petit Bistro on La Cienega. I'd love a place with a great wine list, and nice ambiance.

Anyone have any suggestions?

A place with great wild salmon and/or rack of lamb would be preferred too.

Fish Grill on Beverly Blvd

is a great spot!

Seriously, for some fresh, simply grilled Trout, Whitefish, Salmon etc, and some rice, salad, potatoes on the side, this place is a true winner. Healthy and delicious.

And totally fresh. Yum!

RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATION IN SANTA MONICA

Oh, and lest I forget, Primitivo Wine Bistro in Venice is always a good time!

RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATION IN SANTA MONICA

I always have had fun at Typhoon at the Santa Monica Airport. Haven't been there in a while but foods been delish.

Azami: Viva La Eh

I agree!

Where else is good in the area? We were just saying last night that there aren't such great sushi spots locally. I like the one on Highland and Franklin.

Anyone tried the Village Idiot on Melrose and Martel?

Too funny!

This place also has its merits because there are no cool restaurants on Melrose. For a place that is so popping during the day, it really could use a few cool spots to hang at night.

Anyone tried the Village Idiot on Melrose and Martel?

I was there last night! This place has a lot of potential. Really liked the design and ambiance. The menu is currently limited (ie small) since they've just opened this week. The food was good, but since it is based on an English pub, it has its limitations. Boo - if it were some fab italian I'd be all over it.

Still a great place to have a bottle of wine with friends.

Is that what it's called? I thought it was Public House

I live in the neighborhood, but want to know if this is just pizza, or if they have more goodies. Thanks :)

I love Cobras for a bunch of girls and wine. How can you go wrong there?

Hotel/Restaurant or Stand alone bar in Torrance area

Thanks, been to the Depot. Great food, but I wouldn't necessarily call that a great after work drink spot. But thanks!

Fun, romantic, ambiance in Studio City/Encino

I'm looking for a nice place to celebrate the new house that my husband and I bought in Encino Hills. Food could be greek, italian, european, whatever... just looking for some nice ambiance, good food, and great wine. Anywhere from Studio City to Encino works... thanks!
