Valentine's Day

Looking for recommendations from anyone who's had a great Valentine's Day experience at any restaurant within the District. I'm trying to avoid anything steakhouse, and I'd like to go somewhere where sharing plates is encouraged with a nice but cozy atmosphere. My inclination is to go to Proof if I can't think of anything else. I was thinking Blue Duck Tavern, but I see that they're now charging $25/person for any reservation made for a holiday, which seems...unsual. Also, I noticed that a lot of places are already booked for times from 6pm to 8pm for both Saturday 2/13 and Sunday 2/14. I had no idea that I should be reserving a table over a month in advance! Looking forward to hear all of your thoughts.
