Birthday Dinner in Burbank area
Chowhound visiting the area from Canada for the first time and looking for a place for a birthday dinner. Not too noisy, price: entree around $18 to $25. Italian,French or Continental.... Seafood plus steaks, the usual... Not a place where you have to wear a tie, but reasonably nice. Got a place like that? No problem going out of the area, say 30 min drive.
Park Ave down on Beach in Stanton is surprisingly nice. They serve New American food, which draws its influences from all over.
It's not exactly what you're looking for, but it is quiet, the price range is there and maybe the menu will surprise you.
If you're feeling adventurous, Il Chianti in Lomita is a Japanese-Italian place. The flavors are really accessible with the main difference being the prominent place of seafood on the menu.

Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock -- great food, great wine -- it can be noisy, but that's where we celebrated my b-day this year, and I loved it!
