Reviews of Kensington Restaurants (Calgary)

I am taking my wife to see the Nutcracker in a few weeks. It is being preformed at the Southern Jubilee, so I figured it would be easiest to eat somewhere in Kensington (plus, we live just north of Kensington and I'm always curious as to what everyone thinks about the eats there). I would prefer something nice, as we will be nicely dressed for the performance.

A few specific places I am considering (but please feel free to comment on any Kensington Restaurant that you absolutely love!) -

The Muse - I have a few reccomendations from folks to check this place out. First, what should I expect to pay for a dinner for two and a bottle of wine? Second, is it worth it?

Moroccan Castle - I have heard very mixed reviews about this place.

Pulcinella - Have heard nothing but good things, but I'm worried that it might be a bit too casual for our "dressy" attire.

On another note, I visited Ten Scene a few weeks ago and was not overly blown away. Definitely a great improvement from the Verve, but I still thought it was a bit overpriced for what you got. Don't get me wrong, the Lobster Martini was fantastic! However, we did have a Beet Salad (or something like that) that was very plain and bland and another Satay type dish that was good, but something I felt I could have gotten at Joe's for half the price. Any one else have a great experience that will convince me to give it another try?
