    i was going to suggest Ca Del Sole as well.

    my second thought re the seafood and dietary restrictions was Ruth's Chris. or if you were willing to come over the hill to WeHo, the Palm.

      Hard to think of the Palm coming in under $75 for two, even without drinks & dessert, but I could be wrong!

        oh crap. you're totally right, i somehow stopped thinking about the $$ cap once i started thinking about the fish and dietary restrictions. Palm has fish dishes for thirty odd dollars, so that won't work. my apologies.

      The Grill on the Alley in Westlake Village might suit you.

        Do you mean $75 including tx, tip, drinks, everything? You *might* be able to do SPL for under $75 total, but not if you plan on having an appetizer or a salad or dessert or any beverage but water. And not if you do seafood or meat -- their vegetarian entrees are about $30, and the game and seafood are higher than that.

        I don't know what GF DF and SF options are, but if you want fresh seafood, it'll probably cost you. Roys offers seafood, but it's not always grilled, and you probably won't be under $75 there either. Mortons offers grilled lobster, as does Ruth's Chris but also not under $75.

          I was thinking about Roy's 3 course prix fixe for $35 pp.

            What about Pino Bistro...have you been to this palce? It's a Patino restaurant. I like their menu..And, thanks for the Roy's suggestion. I have thought of it but, it's part of Flemings and I DON"T like Flemings. Is Roy's better?

              I really like Roy's. Everything is really fresh and full of flavor. Really good service. Roy's is a separate company and is not part of Flemings Restaurants (P.F.Changs and Paul Martins are part of Flemings) even though Roy's and Flemings are next door to each other at the Woodland Hills location.

                Yes, I like Roy's also.

                  I love Roy's, but they do not really have much in the way of grilled fish. I think it generally only has grilled salmon. Most of the other fish is prepared in other ways, and some probably have sugar in the marinades.

                  I would recommend the OP consider McCormick & Schmick's in Burbank. It's not the best food, but there are a lot of grilled fish options. The only thing is that I'm not sure it is going to be any better than King's.

                    And all are ultimately owned by Outback Steakhouse.

                    Pinot Bistro would be a lovely choice. It has improved dramatically over the slump it was in a couple of years ago. They also have a three course for $35.00 that is a great bargain. You probably should check as to what days/times it's available.

                      Thank you Bob Brooks! We may get to Pinot Bistro as I like the menu very much.

                I afraid I'm too ___________ , to get all your cryptography ?

                What do GF, DF, and SF stand for ?

                "Not more than $75 ttl for 2" ?

                Does that include tax & tip, any adult beverages ?

                  Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free.
                  We don't drink alcohol and yes, I want it to include tax/tip-usually no desserts too since they are all about sugar!

                  I wonder how Roy's in Woodland Hills would work out for you all?

                    You might check Riviera in Calabasas or at Ca Del Sole in North Hollywood/Universal City area.
