I was hoping that you guys can help me out with some suggestions. My girlfriend is coming back from out of town tomorrow and I wanted to take her out for dinner. What are some good places to go. Looking for somewhere with good food and nice ambience. We're both in our late 20's.

Thanks in advance.

    Artisan Bistro
    Mercato

    Muse

    That oughta get you started. I haven't even mentioned some great ethnic spots.

    1. I second Mercato and Brava as good places to eat that have a cool, hip ambiance and are located in good 'date' areas.

      1. Cilantro - my top choice. I am in my late 20's and this place has a great atmosphere (for any age), great food, and reasonable prices. By far my favorite in the city.

        1. Does Cilantro have AC? I went there during the summer and it was absolutely stifling. Or was the AC simply broken?

          1. I will third Bravo and Cilantro.

            I will also second Capo, Raw Bar, Divino and Muse.

            I will also add Rouge, St Germain and Alexis.

            I will also mention to avoid Belgo at all costs.

            If you want further info on any of these places, just ask, I and others would be happy to provide more details.
