I'll second Sayat Nova. It's kind of a hidden gem. A small place in tourist central that most tourists do not go for some reason. Very good food. Quiet and secluded.

I love Sayat Nova, but it is old and kinda dingy. I think of it more for great food at reasonable prices.

I think ladies sometimes like pretty .I, personally like Le Coloniel when I'm dressed up a bit. It's pretty.

Naha would be my favorite. it's amazing, interesting food and an elegant room, very quiet and serene...but it would be pushing your price range. You could do it with no drinks. Piccolo Sogno on Halsted (esp. if the weather permits the outdoor patio) is beautiful and delicious Italian. It's not exactly downtown, but a 5 minute cab ride away. Atwood Cafe is also lovely and in your price range. And Kiki's Bistro is very pretty too...the food is good, tho just regular french bistro fare.

Though not downtown, Geja' s is a great fondue restaurant on Armatige which is a short cab ride north. It's very romantic with private booths and a classical guitarist playing. A fantastic wine list and the food is great. With a moderate wine you will very easily get out the door less than $150. Check them out on the web.

I was just thinking the same thing. Geja's would be something different and still meet their requirements.
