I'm looking for something a little more upscale, but am totally open to all suggestions. I had a pleasant experience at Aubergine, but that was a few years ago and other chowhounds have since given it mix reviews (maybe Tim Goodell is spreading himself too thin?). The B-day person favors seafood (Water Grill in LA, Swan Oyster Depot in SF, etc.), but loves great food in general (so it doesn't have to be seafood). Thanks!
