What is YOUR meaning of fine dining?

I'm pretty crazy about top-notch food and fine dining restaurants. As a researcher in the food service industry, I've focused my research on this field. So far, I got some quite varied and sometimes contrary views on what fine dining means to the individual, ranging from "expensive and overpriced", through "stiff ambience" to "two-hour vacation from a busy day". Obviously, this is a quite controversial issue for some.

So I thought it might be pretty interesting to see what a bunch of foodies has to say to this topic. What is your personal meaning of fine dining? And what do you personally associate with it?
