The BEST dining experience in LA for $100-150/person

Hello hello-

Long time no post.

I have a friend (read: ex that I am still crazy about) coming into LA for three days. We want to do a "fancy" dinner Sunday night. We were talking about doing a steakhouse (Nick & Stef's or Mortons), but I really would like to do something SPECIAL and MEMORABLE beyond "that was a really good steak". I want a meal we will still talk about a year from now- a start to finish experince.

So, hounds, help me out. Neither of us really drinks, so we can afford a spendy meal. I'm thinking $100-$150 a person without booze.

Keep in mind:
1. I'm looking for a whole experience- if the service or the atmosphere is off, I will be bummed. I don't need waiters in tuxedos, just attentive service, attention to detail and an intimate space.
2. The food has to leave me speechless
3. Romantic is a plus.
4. $200-$300 total food bill.

I live in Silverlake, and work in Century City. Anywhere from Pasadena to Berverly Hills would be GRAND.

I adore you hounds, littlemissbusiness
