Any recommendations out there for a moderately priced restaurant in Burbank with GREAT food and ambience? It would be for a Saturday evening.....

Many thanks in advance for your thoughts!

    Arnie Morton's? The Smoke House?

      Would you settle for Burbank adjacent -- i.e., Glendale?

      If so, maybe consider MINX?

        Try Lasher's. Great atmosphere, though it might be a little pricey....

          Chadaka Thai on San Fernando between Palm and Magnolia...it's run by the same family that does Tuk Tuk on the west side and Rhambutan in Silverlake.
          I like Chadaka so much more...no attitude, great food, amazing cocktails...I rarely like fru-fru drinks but I love their mango mojito...yum yum.
          I love sitting at the bar, great music, great room, normal people not trying to be someone or pick up on anyone who is drunk enough.
          Spliiting a bunch of apppetizers is a great idea and then go from there.

            Chadaka THai has this amazing champagne drink, the Champagne Julep. minty, sweet, bubbly, yummy!

              I would usually say "never mess with my champagne" but mint and bubbles, I don't think I could resist...I will definitely give it a try.
              Now, does everyone know that their happy hour ROCKS! and the lunch specials a pretty special...but I love that on one night of the week, they have a 1/2 price bottle of wine special...pretty good reson to try Chadaka for those who wouldn't consider it...oh, and the beer selection in inpressive.

                Are they beer and wine only? - Do they have distilled spirits??
