Looking for a romantic dinner spot Tampa/Orlando


I am looking for a cozy and quite spot to take my wife for a special dinner in either Tampa or Orlando. I want somewhere that being dressed up isn't required but isn't out of place either (formal casual). A nice small booth with tabletop lighting would be great but are hard to find if you don't know them.

Needs to have good service but not intrusive service (I don't need a waiter every 5 min asking if the meal is alright, just coming by when the drinks need a fill up or able to find one when you need them would be great)

Would like to keep total cost below $200, but have a little leg room with that. Any cuisine is acceptable and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Bern's In Tampa - be sure to visit the dessert room. You might be able to keep it to $200.

As far as romantic, I think the Melting Pot (even though it's a chain) is the most romantic restaurant. Bern's is great, but sometimes you're in a big room full of people, and it can be loud at times. The dessert room is definitely romantic! You may also want to consider Ruth's Chris, J Alexander's or Roy's. With Bern's they do say you need to wear dress pants, but I have seen some people wear jeans even though, they're not supposed to. Also, I've heard great things about The Red Rose Dining Room in Plant City. I have not been myself, but many of my friends have been and say it's very good.

Il Terrazzo is my top choice in Tampa. Its small, very romantic, overlooking the water, and you can go out for a nice stroll after dinner. Food and service are both fantastic!
