      We went to Boulevard this year, was perfect. Have never been disappointed there.

        Problem with Boulevard is the tables for two are not in the best part of the restaurant.

          I find Boulevard's tables for two along the north wall very romantic. Very flattering light but you can still see your food.

        How about La Folie.

          I enjoyed a special anniversary dinner last August at Quince. It was a lovely experience - from the ambiance to the service to the food. The dinner rolls are addictive, and it's the best pasta I've ever eaten.

          Here are more reviews:

            Reviews have been sufficiently mixed that I'd hesitate to go there for the first time on a special occasion:

            My choices for an anniversary dinner would include (sorted mostly by price - low to high):

            Quince (Italian/French)
            Myth (California/Contemporary)
            Acquerello (Italian - Northern)
            Jardiniere (California/Contempoary)
            Boulevard (American/Contemporary)
            Gary Danko (California/Contemporary)

            You can keep it at $100 per at any of these places by watching the wine tab.

            Neither Zuni nor Piperade seem special enough for such a celebration.

              Acquerello's a very romantic and quiet room with polished but not overly formal service, and their $110 five-course prix fixe with free refills on the wine pairings is the best value I know of in that price range.
