Romantic restaurant for anniversary dinner

I looked up some great past posts and will be checking websites for the restaurants but I want to know which one I should go to for our tenth anniversary dinner??

My husband doesn't like seafood so need place that serves other types of food also. A nicer place for that night.

We are leaving on Oct 19th and anniversary is 24th so it would be a sunday night dinner.

Thanks for any info...

  1. You did not mention a particular price range for dinner. Will you have a car? Are you staying in the FQ. It helps to know where you are staying and how you plan to get around. If you are staying in the FQ you could have a great anniversary at Commander's Palace or Brigtsen's which are in the GD and Uptown. You would need to take a cab if you did not have a car. You could walk from FQ to Emeril's in CBD and have a great time. There are some wonderful places in the FQ such as Galatoire's, Antoine's, Arnaud's and Bayona to celebrate.

    Post back where you are staying, your budet and how you plan to get around. Thanks.

      1. We had a nice time at Cuvee for our anniversary last week. Good food, good service, dark romantic atmosphere.

        2. Just out of the FQ, I would recommend The Grill Room at the Windsor Court Hotel:

          They are into romance, and have a full menu.

          1. It was late when I posted not thinking clearly! We are staying in the FQ, taking cab from airport so no car.

            Price range well for that night maybe $100 or more if we pick a good wine...we could take cab or walk or street car?? I don't know the area yet...

                August is a great restuarant. The workers are super nice and the food is outstanding. My friend and I spent a little over $200. We had a bottle of wine, a single glass of wine, a martini, 2 appetizers, our entrees and desserts. I'm not a seafood eater either but I pick around the seafood when it was in the dishes. It is in the warehouse district across the W hotel. Very accesible to the fq.
