We're looking for a quiet restaurant for dinner, open to any type of cuisine, but hopefully something in the $20-$25 range for entrees. Doesn't have to be fancy but we like to talk and are getting frustrated with places where the acoustics are so bad there is a constant din even if the place is half-full.
Somewhere on the Westside, Santa Monica, Westwood, Culver City, Beverly Hills would be fine. Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks.
