A nice dinner out in Tokyo without breaking the bank....Kyoto recs?

OK, the tickets for May are booked! My son lives there, and he will be the main travel guide as far as restaurants are concerned (He was once a picky eater but has evolved into a chowhound). However, I would love to surprise him and his SO with a nice dinner out, somewhat elegant, and not meat-centric (DH will eat fish but not any other meat). But this trip is already going to be pricey, so I don't want TOO over the top. Preferably a locals place, but maybe somewhere the locals might go for a nice night out. He lives in Setagaya-ku, but anywhere easily accessible by public transport is fine....Also, we hope to take the bullet train up to Kyoto for a couple of days - any ideas there? I don't mind eating in the usual noodle and sushi places where he hangs out; in fact I'm looking forward to it...but something a little different and more upscale would be nice for one meal. Ideas?
