romantic steak restaurant in weho or 3rd/rob

For my boyfriend I am looking for a romantic restaurant that serves great steak in the weho, hollywood, robertson and 3rd, fairfax area. Any suggestions?? I don't just need straight up steak houses. Maestros might be a little too pricey for me?
How is Il Cielo?
kurt, do you mean maestro's makes il cielo look like jack in the box? because the price points between the two places are WAAAAAAAAAAAY off. maestro's is definitely pricey - but oh so good.
that being said, il cielo is a GREAT place for romance and ambiance, and they do a nice steak for an italian joint. i also recommend the veal chop if they have it on special.
The merquez steak with frites at Le Petit Bistro on La Cienega (cross street - Melrose) is out of this world. The ambiance is French/Romantic, but you will get to know your neighbors well, so if it's intimacy you're looking for - no. Good food, yes yes yes.
Try the Brazilian Fago de Chao...in Beverly Hills. Service was excellent, the cheese bread is one of a kind. Nice salad bar, very fresh, plenty o' selections. The MEAT is delivered on long skewers and is cooked to perfection. A must try!
What about Morrel's at The Grove? You can either sit outside and people-watch on their patio...I also heard their interior is quite nice-looking. Plus, you can get a fondue or souffle...yum!
Oh...and Carlos Garditel is an excellent Argentinian steak house on Melrose (near Fairfax). Small, friendly and family-run. They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
Here's a couple to get you started...
Bistecca at Pane e Vino on Beverly? Plenty of other choices, not too pricey and kinda romantic out on the patio.
Little Door... Plenty romantic, little more $$
Angelini outside on the patio can be romantic... and the food hard to beat.
Jar isn't so romantic... but definitely yummy.
Dakota at the Roosevelt? Steakhouse with a more modern look/feel to it.
Pastis had a nice relaxed/romantic vibe last time I was there... can't speak for the steak though - haven't had it.
Tagine is on Robertson, just north of Wilshire-- that is, just a couple blocks down from the 3rd/Robertson area.
