Restaurants & Bars San Diego Anniversary Dinner

Please help with small 50th anniversary dinner!

We are celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary in San Diego in December. We'll be staying on Coronado. They've asked me to find them a special restaurant for their actual anniversary dinner (there will only be 6 of us). They've specifically asked for someplace French and specifically said they don't want Italian. California-cuisine would probably be okay too.

They have traveled and eaten out a lot and I think they'd prefer a restaurant that has perfect food and service over one that is trendy with unique food. If it was Los Angeles, I'd suggest Spago Beverly Hills or The Water Grill, but I don't know what to suggest in San Diego.

I've looked through the boards and checked out Blanca, but its menu looks more trendy than what I think they want. The same with Kitchen 1540. George's California Modern seems like an option. As does Rancho Valencia.

Does anyone have any thoughts that might help me? I think they'd be fine going anywhere in the general San Diego area as long as the food is worth the trip.

Thanks for any help!
