Need a good date restaurant
I am looking for a restaurant/tapas bar/etc. with good food and a relaxed atmosphere. A place where you could take a date, and spend the evening talking without being hurried out.
I am open to different types of food. Ideally the place would be on the westside.
Your advice would be very appreciated!!
night of the week might make a difference in terms of atmosphere or feeling pressured to vacate your seats.
- West at Hotel Angeleno could be nice.
- Primitivo on Abbot Kinney, but only if you can score a table on the patio because it gets deafeningly loud inside.
- Hostaria del Piccolo in SM is getting good CH reviews but i don't know what the noise level is like.
- The Misfit, but that's also new & i haven't been there yet.
- Upper West? Bin 73? Wilshire?
i know there have to be other great spots in West LA but i'm blanking...i think i've been out of the dating game AND living in the Marina for too long ;)

unless West has changed their menu, there is no way it could come in at Brooke1223's budget. when i was there 2 years ago, most drinks were over $10 before tax and tip (i.e. about $13 after tax and tip).
at a budget of $50/pp all in, can't see how West would work.
Hosteria del Piccolo charges about $16 for a SMALL bowl of pasta. . . .
please give us a clue about price level.
to me, the lounge area at cafe del rey in the marina would do the trick.
they offer a bar menu or you could order anything that you want from the regular menu.
their food is better than good.
good wine-by-the=glass list.
they also have a full liquor license and capable bartenders.
quiet enough to hear each other.
pretty room with a fireplace.
The 3rd floor patio over looking the 3rd street promenade at Zengo.
