DC Restaurants - Which for a romantic dinner?

Hello - I'm looking for a recommendation for a romantic spot in DC for an engaged couple. A few of us are looking to buy them a gift certificate to celebrate their engagement. Thanks!

It would be helpful if you could give a price range and if there is a food type preference.

I agree - especially regarding proce range. A romantic dinner for two can be had anywhere in the range of $100 to $500 dollars.

Ah, yes. Sorry about that. We're looking for the $100 range since we're all somewhat recent college grads. Food type: French, Italian, American.

A few thoughts:

http://www.tabardinn.com/restaurant

http://www.marvindc.com/

http://www.jaleo.com/



In each case, they may need to be carful about drinks - limiting wine to glasses or having beer or sangria insteaad.

Tabard Inn would be nice. They have nice patio outback and in the winter there is a fireplace. The times I've been to Marvin's, its been packed and VERY loud, so not sure how romatic that would be. Good food and fun atmosphere though. Jaleo's can also be hectic and noisy, but also good food. In Arlington, Willow is nice and u should be able to get by around $100. Petit Plats on Connecticut Ave is a possiblity. Firefly in Dupont Circle also might work

I like Jaleo's but the word romantic never would have entered my mind about it. It's a loud, noisy, hectic fun place with Spanish food (tapas), so doesn't even fit your criteria of food type. Tabard Inn is a nice place. I think Bistro Francais in Georgetown is moderately prices and kind of romantic, I guess, in that dark cozy restaurant way.

I think we're going to go with The Tabard Inn. In addition to the good reviews, they have a very easy Gift Certificate request form on the website. Thanks for all the suggestions!
