Looking for a good special occasion spot on the Peninsula.

I've been brainstorming for about two weeks now, trying to come up with a good spot for an anniversary dinner. I love fine dining, he'll eat pretty much anything. It can't be TOO expensive. I'd really prefer someplace where we won't see people in shorts and sandals.

To give an idea of the type of places I'm looking for, I was originally considering Sushi Tomo in Mountain View, because the food is excellent. It's a little too casual though, and we eat sushi all the time. Next up on the list was Sundance Steakhouse, but for some reason we're feeling like two bellies stuffed full of beef won't make for the type of evening we're going for.

He is a huge fan of creole and cajun food. Loves New Orleans. Can anyone tell me about CreoLa's atmosphere? Is it really casual? Do people dress up even a little bit? This is going to be on a Saturday night.

I'm open to other suggestions as well. This needs to be between Sunnyvale and San Carlos. It should be noted that I'm pretty tired of every downtown Palo Alto restaurant.
