great ideas for 50th birthday dinner?

I live here and really ought to know where would be a great spot for a 50th birthday dinner, but I'm at a loss. Obviously I need to eat out more. A lot more.

Would appreciate feedback on someplace lively but not too too loud (ala Black Bottle), good food but not $100 per person. There will only be 6-7 of us. (We went to Pink Door last year which was about right.) Good vegetarian options are important as are decent service. (I'm an ex-server and, in my case, great food doesn't make up for horrible service, especially for a special occasion.)

Thanks in advance and thank you to those who made suggestions for spots for the four out of towners from the Southwest (who are here the following week). Good dining locales for locals vs. out-of-town non-foodies can be quite different.

Some suggestions made already. I haven't been to any recently.
Thanks in advance.
