Santa Monica recommendations for marriage proposal

jms | May 25, 200112:14 PM     14

Hello all,

I'm looking for a restaurant in Santa Monica to take my girlfriend to before I propose to her. We will be staying at the Fairmont Santa Monica, so something close by would be good. I am currently considering One Pico, Lavande, and Cezanne. Anyone have any recommendations regarding these 3 or any others? We aren't big meat eaters... mostly seafood. But atmosphere is very important. I want this to be a very memorable experience in all respects --- food, service and atmosphere. Also, whichever restaurant I choose should be willing to go out of there way to make the experience perfect (of course, I will let them know beforehand). I was thinking of having them write "Will You Marry Me" in chocolate sauce around the desert plate...

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Josh
