birthday dinner recs

i'll be taking a road trip to the LA area during labor day weekend with a few friends, one of whom is celebrating a 30ish birthday. does anyone have favorites for a restaurant that is either:

* a fun atmosphere (the wackier the better) but where the food is fairly good (doesn't have to be four star - two and a half to three star would be ok)


* three to four star and a nice view and atmosphere but not outrageously expensive (something like the CIA greystone which is in napa valley)

thanks !
