If you come from NY, Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, SF, Vegas, LA or Miami, the answer is "we don't have expensive restaurants here". If you don't, read on...
If you are planning on wine and dessert, Piccolo isn't quite as high up there, but it's not cheap (nor should it be).
Aside from the steakhouses, Cosmos, LBV, Heartland and Alma and St. Paul Grill are up there. So is, Chez Daniel, but coupons are quite available. Raku and that sushi place in Excelsior have to rate among the most expensive meals.
Lord Fletcher's is expensive, but you get to watch drunken trust fund babies stumble off of boats... I call that dinner and a show.
Out of curiosity, why do you ask?

Isn't Capitol Grille up there seems like all those "nice" chains are up there in price.
Yea per ounce Piccolo has to be up there you could drop a small fortune there if you wanted to. Meritage is expensive but totally worth in comparison to some of the other places of equal price.
Glanced earlier. Manny's blows almost all others out of the water. $35 / lb lobster, $125 lobster tail.
Per ounce? Probably Piccolo from what I've read. La Belle Vie, Meritage, Heartland, WA Frost, etc., all get into the $30's for entrees. La Belle Vie might be able to shave some truffle on something to run up the price.
