2 Hopewell in South Glastonbury. Excellent food and a nice romantic atmosphere. I have not been there in years but Mill on the River in South Windsor is very nice too. Jay

Thanks everyone! Oddly, the date has a taste for some steak. I'm thinking Morton's, but they are $$$. Just not convinced the value there. All of the other places are interesting, and some I am shocked I never heard of. So thanks! I'm weeding through pics and menus to see which place is worth visiting.

Any suggestions that have steak on the menu?

Max Downtown does excellent steaks.

I agree. But it can be pricey too. Jay

If you're into Thai food, give Blue Elephant Trail a shot. A nice, cozy spot in WH center on South Main. Even when it's crowded it's never loud. Great food, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere - more so in warmer months since they have outdoor seating. Sake Cafe in Bloomfield is similar, but it's Japanese. Both are dimly lit (but not dark) and I think this is largely the reason why they're so subdued even when it's crowded. Normally I go here to hang out with friends or co-workers, but most people here are couples, and these are good spots for that.

J Gilberts in Glastonbury has great wood fired steaks but isn't cheap.

thumbs up for J Gilberts as well, been there a few times, but Mortons is a touch above. Yes pricey but worth it, give them a call, they sometimes have a special, we went there not too long ago, and they had a special:
2 filet mignons
1 appetizer each (either shrimp, scallops, or chicken)
1 order of potatoes to split (trust me one order is enough)
1 veggie side to split (also enough)
2 deserts.

I believe it was $119.00, with a glass of wine each it came to about $145 or so, then a $35 tip or so, plus parking you are looking at close to $200.00 Hence we go there once a year.

J gilberts is not as pricey, but still will run you over $100 by the time you are done

I have never liked J Gilberts. To me it has all the atmosphere and decor of a 99 Restaurant. If I am paying those kind of prices, I do want to look at some decent artwork or at least a nicer dining room. For upscale steak, we go to Max (just about any of them have great steaks). Still we also like to go Chucks in Rocky Hill. The steak is decent and the decor is nothing special but the salad bar is great and the prices are a lot less than Gilberts. JMHO, Jay
