    have not heard good things about the food since the reopening / new owners.

    If you're looking for a romantic garden with good food, I'd recommend Gascogne on 8th at 18th.

        Have no idea about the reopening, but my last experience in the old location (admittedly about 7+ years ago) was so horrendous that there is no way i could return...

          one thing to consider would be the proximity to bastille day. prob not an issue since it's the day before, but in years past it's at least been a loud party on bastille day... with the street outside provence converted to a petanque court, live band, drunk french people singing... fun, but perhaps not a romantic anniversary option.

            When Bastille Day falls on Saturday, the partying usually starts on Friday night at the latest!

            I second Gascogne. Very romantic garden, amazing food, excellent, low-key service.
