    How about Lavagne in the EV? I think the atmosphere is lovely, has good food and won't break the bank.

      I was taken to River Cafe for my birthday this year. Very over the top romantic (not in a bad way), but really mediocre, overpriced food. Same for Cafe des Artistes, but without the romance.
      For well-priced romantic, consider Crispo, Apizz, August, Little Owl. If you're looking to spend more money, Bouley would be my pick.

          All 4 restaurants can be found on opentable. Crispo and Apizz are Italian, Little Owl American, August mediterranean, and Bouley French. You can search for reviews on this board as well.

            August is perfectly romantic and the food is great.

                    Le Jardin Bistro has a lovely, romantic garden. The French cuisine served there is good, and many of the main courses have prices that meet your budget.
