Looking for romantic restaurant for tonight.

  • 5

Romantic but not too formal in Hollywood, West Hollywood or Santa Monica. Bonus if the cuisine is a little adventurous. ..if I were in nyc, I'd pick Babbo - Pizzeria Mozza is a little too casual and the Osteria isn't quite the vibe I want either. Price isn't really an issue but I don't judge a meal by the bill so I'm more interested in quality than bragging about where we went.

  1. Sona or Melisse may work....

    1. Ortolon is definitely romantic. Other options: Citrus, Valentino

      1. The Nook? http://www.nookbistro.com. Small... hidden...on Santa Monica Blvd. in W. L.A. or Literati2 on Wilshire, near the Brentwood area.

        1. I second Melisse. Great food and comfortable enviroment.

          1. For pure ambiance above food: Little Door or the Garden at Chateau Marmont.
            For food slightly above ambiance but still romantic, or at least good date night places: Jar, AOC.
            For best of both maybe Capo.
