I'm looking for a romantic place that is not too expensive. I dont mind spending around 30 dollars on an entree, but 40-50 dollars is just too much on my college budget; especially after the Christmas holidays. I'm just looking for a place where I can hang out with my girlfriend. Good food, good drinks, and an atmosphere where we can hold a conversation and not get drowned out with noise. I have been going through this forum and looking at the menu's of suggested restaurants....seems good but priced for special occasions. Can you guys help me out? I want to find a place around Santa Monica, Hollywood or closely neighboring cities. Any help would be appreciated. And the type of food? I love everything, but my girlfriend is not a big fan of cilantro....that is all.
