I don't know if "fancy" is the correct term and I'm pretty sure there is no dress code but Greco's in Exeter is fairly unique. They offer booth dining, each table is separated from others in there only little private booth. When I say booth I mean full walls and a curtain across the doorway.

You are correct, sir. There is no dress code at Grico's. And FWIW, I wouldn't consider it "fancy", despite the private booths. I was there once with a friend for dinner. We hadn't seen one another in a while, and we really wanted to "catch up". Unfortunately, there was a rather noisy crowd in the bar, and we finished our meal and headed to a local doughnut shop for coffee and conversation.

Sounds like the OP is looking for somewhere to take someone special - maybe to pop the question? I'd skip Grico's and keep looking.

What about Patsel's in Glenburn, near Clarks Summit? I don't recall if they have a dress code or not, but I recall it being a relatively upscale place (for NEPA). You can enjoy a very nice dinner here and then cruise into Downtown Clarks Summit and listen to some jazz music while sipping drinks at the State Street Grill. Carmen's, inside the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Downtown Scranton, is another consideration, and Scranton has a pretty decent nightlife scene if you wanted to drink/dance the night away afterwards. Also, it's not "upscale" at all, but I think an evening dinner in the waterfront room of Cooper's in Pittston, which overlooks the Firefighters' Memorial Bridge, with its fiber-optic lighting, the historic mini-mansions of West Pittston, and the Susquehanna River could be nice. The downside is that Downtown Pittston itself is a hole with no romance to offer. Cafe Toscana in Downtown Wilkes-Barre is reasonably upscale for dinner, and then you can see a movie at the theater, see a show at the Kirby, attend a lecture at one of the colleges, or mellow out to some music at Barnes & Noble while sipping coffee from Starbuck's. Theo's Metro, a Greek restaurant in Kingston housed in a former popcorn factory, is another option. I'd consider it somewhere between casual and upscale in terms of attire (business casual perhaps). Kingston also offers The Bake House for some excellent desserts in a trendy atmosphere. I will add more as they come to mind.

AuRant's in Duryea is a great place, with a gourmet menu, upscale feel, GREAT beer & wine menu, but still within reason with their prices.

Since the OP asked for something "fancy" I'm not sure AuRant's is the call. While it can be "pricey", it's also casual. Sometimes, quite casual. I also have heard mixed reviews about the food.

Damentis Restaurant on Rte 309 just a couple of miles south of Moutain Top is a very nice upscale restaurant which offers great meals and a quiet elegant atmosphere.

There is no strict dress code - (not sure why the OP requires black dress & ties) - but for the most part folks will be dressed for dinner - at least a notch up from casual.

*****************
Reston - fyi - the fiber optic lights of the Water Street Bridge in Pittston have been inoperable for quite some time now. Seems they had transformer problems and the city has no funds to maintain them after they burned through the $120,000 grant money they used for the initial installation.

Same logic used when the powers that be constructed the Pittson waterfront park that is barely used by anyone and is flooded with each high water event - never mind that it is located directly in front of a river eddy that accumulates all the iron oxide sludge that is emitted from the upstream mine drainages.

AuRants is a wonderful establishment. The food is amazing! If there are mixed reviews, those people should have their palettes checked. It is quite casual with gourmet food & an upscale feel. That's hard to accomplish and certainly unique for this area. It may not be a recommendation meeting the requirements of what the OP intended, however, it is worth pointing out in case they feel like leaving the dress clothes at home in the future. AuRants is highly recommended. Yes, I registered just to post in reply to this. AuRants is that good (and they deserve the free pr! lol).
