40th birthday dinner in Seattle--without breaking the bank

Husband's turning 40 and I want to take him to a cozy, romantic spot, but not break the bank. Suggestions?

He likes pretty much everything, but I'm trying to get away from Italian as we're doing that later this weekend.

  1. I've celebrated a number of birthdays at Dahlia Lounge--I find it romantic so that would be my recommendation.

    1. My suggestions would be Moxie, La Isla, Cremant, Portage, Crave, How to Cook a Wolf, & Matt's in the Market.

            Just called them - they aren't closing until 10/30.

      1. Lark or Harvest Vine, hands down.

        1. I had my 38th birthday at Cremant and a would absolutely recommend it for a birthday dinner. Delicious, rich, decadent and didn't break the bank. Matt's is always a good bet too. Another suggestion is Place Pigalle. Their mussels are fantastic.

          1. "Divine"....very good, creative Greek food.....NE 80th and Roosevelt...cozy & romantic as well.
