Need romantic restaurant, casual atmosphere (cushions would be awesome), yummy food

My boyfriend and I are doing an early Valentine's celebration tomorrow night (last minute planning- I know). Anyway, I'm looking for a restaurant either in SF or on the way from there to Palo Alto for a romantic dinner. We like all kinds of cuisines, but are looking for something with good food and a romantic, casual atmosphere. We're more interested cushions and candles than formal... And don't want to break the bank on this one either. I'm new to the area, so I'd really appreciate any tips.

  1. What about Aziza or Gitane? Entrees are in the mid-20's, and both have a fun romantic ambiance (in my opinion).

      I love Aziza, but I wouldn't call it casual.

      Would highly recommend RNM - no cushions, but definitely romantic, and the $28 prix-fixe is a steal
