Any suggestions? Not Kokkari or anyplace huge. Thanks

    Aziza is the most romantic, I think... And the food is great!

      Aziza's romantic and makes the best Moroccan food around.

      I figured from the original post that gravity was looking for Greek / Middle Eastern.

        It is nice. More romantic than Mezes.

        Frascati is great and a great date restaurant.

          I agree that Meze's isn't that romantic, but, as you stated, better than most in SF besides Kokkari.

            I love Meze's on Chestnut. There is also Cafe Troya on Clement, which might not be as romantic (it is a little bigger) but the food is great.

              Yeah, Tryoa is fantastic Turkish food...but not too high on romance.

                I wouldn't think of Mezes as romantic, but the atmosphere's nicer than any other Middle-Eastern place I can think of other than Kokkari.

                Estia on Grant is somewhat similar.

                Maykadeh (Persian) in North Beach is nicer than either.

                Anybody been to Newroz recently?

                  I actually found Troya to be romantic: nice lighting, candlelight, exotic food. Plus they have live tango music on Tuesdays, 7-9.

                  Aziza is one of my favorites
