Significant other would like to take me out for a birthday dinner (yea!), and have seen good reviews of Saveur. I hope it can pass by Chowhound standards!
-I can not find a menu online, so would we be able to run $50-$60 or under pre-tip if we split an appetizer and ordered separate entrees? Neither of us drink, and we'll enjoy dessert w/ friends post-dinner at another location.
-We generally tip 20-25%, but will we get pretentious service because we won't be ordering numerous courses or alcohol? I don't want S.O. to feel pushed into spending an exorbitant amount of money for this occasion.
-Ambiance- are the tables appropriately spaced so we could enjoy a private conversation on a weekend night? Dress code suggestion?
-And last, but certainly not least- how's the food? :)
Other suggestions are welcome, though I've searched through threads of romantic places in the area. I'd appreciate any of your comments- thank you!
