good spot with fireplace?

I'm hanging out with a dear friend of mine and I wanted to take him to a semi-romantic place with a fireplace where we can lounge and chat without feeling rushed to leave. Good food and/or a good view. Any suggestions?

    Not sure where you're looking, but Digs Bistro in Berkeley seems to fit the bill. Very intimate, cozy space and quiet enough for long, leisurely conversation. They have a fireplace, but it wasn't in use the night I had dinner there. No view.

      I bleieve that both the Farley Bar and Murray Circle restaurant in the Lodge at Cavello Point both have fireplaces and a nice, cosy atmosphere.

        You could head to the Pelican Inn in west Marin

          Sheba's Lounge has a cozy fireplace with great, oversized chairs and frequently the romance part is taken care of by a great bit of jazz happening at the grand piano.
