HELP -- Romantic Steak Dinner Location - This Tuesday Night!
I am taking my boyfriend out to dinner for a special celebration and want to go to a place where neither of us have been.
Any advice for San Francisco or the Penninsula is appreciated.
Thanks so much!

Actually I was at Izzy's a couple of weeks ago and as far as I know it is still open. I think it was a cuban restaurant in the previous incarnation. Agree that it is not a high-end steakhouse, just decent "bang for the buck" steaks.
On the peninsula, you might also look at Sundance in Palo Alto, which is an old standby or if you are looking for something more romantic/high end, I would check the menu at Marche in Menlo Park. Bumping the romance/ambience up a notch, maybe the Village Pub in Woodside? It's not a steakhouse per se, but they have a grass-fed filet on the menu and sometimes a "special" steak offering. http://thevillagepub.net/home.php
You might try Harris' or Morton's.
Harris' -- good solid choice, they raise their own cattle, etc., probably on par w/ Ruth Chris price/service wise...perhaps a little more formal (looks, feels like a steakhouse)
Morton's -- luxo, upscale, aged beef, expensive (everything is priced seperate: steak, spud, spinach, etc.)
Well it's not a steakhouse, but for atmosphereics
what about BIX? I havent been there in a while,
but it is a "mood place" and you certainly can get
a hunk of meat there.
Some of the steak houses seem a bit of a "corporate
setting, rather than intimate.
