Anniversary Dinner, need to make a reservation this week!

So I need help deciding between Sow's Ear, Robin's or Black Cat Bistro? I'm planning on a Saturday Night Dinner around 6 pm...Super Romantic....My fiance likes the traditional steak/chicken entrees...Nice wine and beer list plus awesome desserts. I just want a nice ambiance. I'm really torn, don't want too trendy food options..Please give your votes!

Neither Robin's or Black Cat Bistro would fit the traditional meal you're looking for. Sow's Ear does. Our local freebie paper has a "Best Of" every year and Sow's Ear won for Most Romantic several years in a row.

Another option would be the restaurant at Cambria Pines Lodge. I think you'll find better steak options there. I've had the steak at Sow's Ear and wasn't impressed.

I agree that you don't want Robins for that sort of meal.

I wonder if in addition to the suggestions made by Kibblesmom you might also like Madeline's? We have had very lovely meals there:

Sow's Ear would be my vote for what you are looking for. Robin's dinner menu includes a lot of curry dishes.

Black Cat Bistro would fit under the "trendy" type of place, plus it can be noisy. Sow's Ear has a more elegant ambiance (dark woods, fireplace), excellent wine list and good dinner choices.
