Westside Romantic Restaurant

My husband and I are looking for a romantic restaurant in West LA to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Must have: amazing food, beautiful decor and great service. We love Melisse, La Botte and Saddlepeak Lodge and may go to one of them, but any other ideas?

  1. Wilshire. On the back patio! Fits all your requirements.

      Wilshire is lovely.

      Other ideas - Josie, Vincenti, Michael's on the patio.

    2. I second Emme's suggestions and add La Cachette and Valentino or, if you are willing to venture slightly East of La Cienega, Ortolan.

      La Cachette Bistro
      1733 Ocean Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90401

      8338 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      Valentino (Santa Monica)
      3115 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405

      1. I think Capo would fit the bill.

        1. not on the "westside" - but in topanga, inn of the seventh ray is amazing. great food (either only or primarily organic), lovely service, and a beautiful setting. make sure to tell them when you're making the reservation.

          1. go to is sooo beautiful, the food and service are incredible...and it is a romantic drive up and back!
