I'm coming down for business this weekend, and looking to have a romantic dinner with my gf near/in Balboa Island. I'd like to have good food and not have it break the bank too hard. I was thinking Basilic, but we're going there on Sunday night, so I'm SOL. I already saw multiple reviews on A restaurant, but I'd like to stay away from hype.
I remember down in Laguna that Chart house was one of my favorites, or whichever harbor? House that was on PCH (near the best western laguna brisas) that is small quaint, and overlooks the ocean, so I'm looking for that kind of atmosphere.
TIY for any advice =D
