Portland Restaurant help needed for xmas g.c.

Hi. My father and his girlfriend live in Portland and I live across the country in Boston. I want to get them a gift certificate to a yummy restaurant in Portland. I'm thinking $100. My Dad doesn't drink but his gf does (i.e. no bottles of wine or $100 should go relatively far). I was looking for something nice, not necessarily fine dining, but if it is that's no problem. It's gotta be good...we are originally from New Orleans and know good food from crappy food. Maybe seafood?
