French Laundry vs. Fleur de Lys - NEED ADVICE!

We have a big anniversary coming up, and want a really incredible dinner. We're willing to stay in a hotel with a concierge, in hopes of getting a FL reservation; is the food really all it's cracked up to be? We went to Inn at Little Washington last year, only to find good (but not incredible) food and mediocre service; they were clearly riding on their reputation. We don't want to have that kind of experience again. I've heard great things about Fleur de Lys, and I know it's not in the same league, but if FL isn't going to blow me away then I'd rather just have a romantic, reasonably priced dinner and not deal with FL. I'd especially appreciate feedback from anyone who has recently been to FL.
Thank you!!
