romantic restaurant for Valentine’s Day ?

Debbie | Nov 10, 2005 12:30 PM

I know it’s still early, but I’m trying to find a romantic restaurant for Valentine’s Day in Santa Monica or West LA. I’ve read reviews for the high end places (Michaels, Valentino, Shutters, Chez Mimi, etc.). What I’d like to find is a place that offers great service (even on a busy day like Valentine’s Day), is quiet and intimate where our table isn’t right on top of the other diners, has great food, isn’t pretentious, and isn’t going to break my bank ($20-30 range per entrée is okay). A good example of the type/feel I’m looking for is Sprazzo, but I’d like to try someplace I haven’t been. Any place like that where people go to eat and not to be “seen”?
