Hello all,
I was looking for a nice place to take my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. I've scowered this board and have pretty much researched every romantic/intimate restaurant mentioned in any thread of the last couple years lol. I am actually from Hawaii, but have been attending college in Baltimore, so I'm not sure of what DC really has to offer.

I was looking for a nice, romantic restaurant (even though I know it will probably be crazy.) I know the term "romantic" is in the eyes of the beholder. As young college students, the most romantic place we've probably ever eaten was the Cheesecake Factory at the Inner Harbor (not very romantic. lol) Most of our dining consist of iHop, Mawaind Kabob, and various sushi spots. I would love to take her somewhere special. We're both open to pretty much whatever, with the exception of eating beef and pork and I was kinda looking to stay under ~$150 for the two of us.

Here is what I have narrowed it down too:

Little Fountain Cafe: Looks perfect. Unfortunately, no reservations available.
Cashion's Eat Place
Bistro Cacao

If anyone has any suggestions/opinions on these, it would be really helpful. I'm kinda leaning toward Bistro Cocao, but I'm open to anything. I also looked at Oya and Mendocino. Unfortunately, there are no reservations available at either of those two as well.
