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.

Thanks!

    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.

          Ortolon is definitely romantic. Other options: Citrus, Valentino
