Does price matter? DC has a lot of great restaurants, but they vary greatly in price.

Price doesn't really matter as long the food,service and ambiance is good.

Thanks

I would recommend I Ricchi in the Dupont Circle area or Indigo Landing in Alexandria. Indigo Landing has an amazing view of the skyline of DC.

The restaurant 1789 in Georgetown is good, with a nice, old-fashioned romantic atmosphere. The local Washingtonian magazine rated it one of the very best in DC for 2009, and we really enjoyed our dinner there a month or two ago.

The Washingtonian's website has reviews and ratings of a lot of DC restaurants.

If you are a bit adventurous in what you eat, Komi is a good choice. They only have a tasting menu, but the food is fantastic and well worth it.

Komi is a really great place from what I hear (one of the best in the area). I recently celebrated an anniversary at Obelisk (Dupont). Great romantic like place, aweseome food and service.

I would recommend Melting Pot in Washington, DC. They have a nice, intimate setting for two and the service was excellent.

I like the top floor of Tabaq. The restaurant is on U Street and has fabulous views of the downtown area at night.

If you want romance and excellent food and service, here are a couple of only in DC experiences:

Komi

Obelisk

Cityzen - all three of the above great foodie experiences

Equinox (a date night restaurant for the Obamas on Michelle Obama's birthday)

Kaz Sushi - fantastic sushi but would definitely sit at the sushi bar and let Kaz do his thing

Restaurant Nora - organic restaurant (first in the country)

Blue Duck Tavern - phenominal restaurant at Park Hyatt Washington

Kinkead's - great seafood

Melting Pot is a chain you can get anywhere

Tabaq is cool but wouldn't say romantic
