Romantic Upscale Restaurant?

Hi - I am looking for suggestions for a romantic, upscale dining experience. Sorry for posting a topic that has been on the forum multiple times, but I am having trouble deciding on a place. I am looking for a restaurant that is more of a dining experince, a longer meal in which they will not rush you out. Space between tables is always nice. In terms of food, anything modern, italian, or french is good. I am looking to spend between 50-70 pounds for food without drink. Thanks advance for your help.

Is that amount per person, or for two? If it is for two then it is quite low for 'upscale' in London I'm afraid.

What about Murano? Not sure about the 'romantic' bit as that is different things to different people, but the food is good.

Bentley's is nice if you like seafood, it's not French or Italian but some of the cooking is French influenced (as is the case with a lot of upscale restaurants). It's one of my favourites. A bill for 2 for 3 courses plus wine normally comes to around £120 or so, so at 60 per head it fits your budget. There is plenty of room between tables and the staff won't rush you. On most evenings, a pianist plays in the lobby and you can hear it upstairs in the main dining room. Now there's romance. ;-)

I can't see anything more romantic than the view of London's lights from above while tasting excellent food. If you agree with me, check out Galvin@Windows, the roof top restaurant of Hilton Park Lane.
