I am looking for a beachfront restaurant where I can surprise my (hopefully) bride to be with an incredible dinner either preceded by or concluded by an engagement proposal, along with nearby romantic accomodations. We live in Santa Monica, and although I am still considering it, I am aware of the options in that area. The restaurant does not have to be a part of the hotel but it would ideally be within walking distance. Thanks in advance for any help. I am willing to go into Orange County and/or Ventura/Santa Barbara.
