Got a date, need a restaurant in New Orleans

So I'm taking this beautiful girl out for dinner for the first time in New Orleans. I'm looking for a romantic place that is upscale but not overly formal. Any type of food would be fine. Does anyone have any suggestions? Preferably a place uptown?

  1. Martinique on Magazine St
    Crepe Nanou on Robert

    1. clancy's (upstairs is probably more romantic than down)
      crepe nanou

      1. Le Crepe Nanou would be good - but they don't take reservations.

        1. second Martinique.

          or call Sara's in the Riverbend and ask for the table in the "living room". it is a private room where you sit on pillows and eat at a low height table. their food is heavenly, and wine prices are most reasonable.

              Brigsten's in the Riverbend....
              Chateau Du Lac on Metairie Road
              Lilette on Magazine

                The lighting is nice, but when the place is full, you can barely hear yourself think, much less have a nice conversation.

                    Um, at One on Hampson, referenced in the post to which I replied.
