Need a very romantic Midtown restaurant before the theater

I'm stumped. We're going to Takashi the following night for our fill of weird, but we're looking for a romantic evening on the town that involves ethnic food (no steakhouses), gorgeous ambiance, and efficient service so we can make it to the theater by 8. I was considering Esca, but it gets mixed reviews. I could use some ideas. Thanks.

      Get an early reservation at Le Bernardin or Marea. Neither one is conventionally romantic but definitely swank and luxurious, serving some of the best food in New York.

        The Lamb's Club is both good and romantic.
