Help! Last minute Valentine's dinner?

Need somewhere in the N.E. LA - Glendale - Pasadena area for a Valentines dinner. No - forgetful me did NOT make reservations yet!!!
Open to pretty much anything as long as it is fairly reasonably priced and not sushi!
I just checked on opentable, and the following restos have availability on Valentine's Day at 7:30 p.m. for two people:
Bar Celeona (tapas) in Pasadena
Crocodile Cafe - Glendale
Crocodile Cafe - Pasadena
Vive Restaurant & Lounge - Pasadena
Sorry, not the best selection...Your probably best off with Bar Celeona. It's the best out of a mediocre bunch.

Last valentines' day we went to El Portal at Pasadena, and it was pretty good as usual. I doubt that they are all booked up.
We inquired at Babita at San Gabriel this year, they have a set menu for $45, 2 seatings. I don't know if they are 100% booked, but worth calling.
Honestly, I think your best option here is cooking dinner for your sweetness. Go to Costco or Santa Monica Seafood, buy 2 lobster tails, steam until red, serve with melted butter. Stock up on the Trader Joe's champagne. The crowds on Valentine's Day are a real turn-off (at least for me!)
