Romantic Dinner with Live music and dancing (jazz preferred)

Hi all,

A colleague of mine is bringing his wife to NYC for their 22nd wedding anniversary. He asked me to recommend a great restaurant that meets the following criteria - about $200-250 total including food and maybe one glass of wine each, white tablecloth, quiet enough to talk, romantic ambiance, live jazz and dancing. He would prefer something where they would not be rushed, where they could get up and dance and then return to the table.

That's all pretty specific and since I tend to love places more like little owl and perilla, I am at a complete loss as to what to recommend! I would have recommended the Rainbow Room (with a caveat on budget), but what about now? Does anyone have any thoughts? A friend pointed me to the Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel, but I don't know anyone who has been there. I also saw Roth's Westside Steakhouse, but I'm unsure on volume or dancing. I don't think Blue Smoke / Jazz Standard will be what they are looking for.

Any suggestions that meet even a portion of the requests would be appreciated.

Thanks so much!
