I've just moved back to the city after 30 years away. This weekend I am planning on proposing to my girlfriend. But I am unsure of where to do it. So I am asking for help.

I need a place with decent food (please please) and a romantic atmosphere. Where the front of the house staff isn't completely crazy. (OK, I work as a chef...I think ALL FOH people are a little wierd)

Thank you all in advance!

    That is soo sweet! I read about Kitchenette's Valentine's menu and I thought it sounded great. Here's the info:

    The story behind the birth of Kitchenette is, appositely, a love story. Owner and chef Nick Hodge runs Kitchenette with his lovely wife Nathalie, treating the bistro as if it were their home. So, you'll either beam with appreciation for their Hollywood story, or scowl with envy as you strike out with your special date. As you might expect, the service is friendly and the tone lighthearted, but the eclectic fare is nothing to slouch at. The special four-course Valentine's menu begins with Oysters, moves onto Lobster Tao, then offers either Grilled Halibut or Spice-Rubbed Filet Mignon. Dinner is preceded by raspberry bubbly and finished with Cherry Coke floats (hopefully with two straws), just like an Archie comic.

    Another place mentioned that I have heard good things about is Barrocco in Old Montreal.

    Goodluck!!!!
