Fine dining recommendations in Paris

My husband and I have a chance to dine out on our own without our young children for 1 night in May in Paris. I have been researching and is feeling a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities so I am really hoping to get some advice on where we should eat at that night.

Last year, we ate at L'atelier de Joel Robuchon and Senderen. I wasn't wowed by Senderen; the room (we ate upsatirs) and the service felt cold and the food was ok. We liked L'atelier de Joel Robuchon; the room was decidedly more friendly and relaxed and we both thought the food was more interesting. While we are tempted to go back to Robuchon again, I was hoping we could explore another restaurant that would give us similar vibe and quality of food.

On an off chance we could dine out another night, what would be a 2nd recommendation? We have eaten at Guy Savoy a few years back and really enjoyed our experience there but i think we are looking for a place a little less formal and not as $ this time, which I think rules out Le Cinq and other more traditional dining establishments. I was curious about Pierre Gagnaire, which from what I have read sounded interesting (and potentially divine) but was wondering about its setting and price?

Thanks in advance for any comments.
