  1. Do you have a price range or is the sky the limit?

    1. mmm under 80$/per without the wine let's say

      1. This might not be what you are looking for but maybe:

        The Little Owl

        and although we didn't care for it too much maybe


        1. Annisa. I would describe it as somewhat romantic, and I think it could work. Toqueville may be a good choice also.

            I agree on both, first things that came to mind.. they are both booked Friday and Saturday. (Tocqueville actually has a 9:45PM on Saturday) it's too expensive probably anyway

            To the OP - Def try for Saturday, you will have better luck on Sat and avoid that cliche of a Valentines day engagement (unless that is what you are after)

            These have tables on Sat 2/15 at reasonable times (if not prime 8:30)

            The Modern Bar Room


            The Harrison


            Here is an offbeat choice for Sat night (I scanned all of open table... ) Le Philosophe. Food is very good

              I responded before the OP indicated the dates. About the worst 2 days of the year to try to reserve anywhere decent, on top of which most have special (read: price gouging) menus for V-day. Unfortunate.

                Novita is a nice idea within price range and atmosphere.
