While not the most expensive, I personally like 6/7 at the Edgewater Hotel. Very romantic- mood lighting, spectacular view of the Sound and the Mountains, awesome sunset views and on Wednesday night about 7 p.m. you usually have the sailboat races occuring in that area. I took some friends there last summer for dinner, in August, and they were absolutely floored by the views and just about fell out of their seats when the sailboats appeared. Great food too. I would suggest a reservation so you can get window seating.

Shoegal111 cool post I totally agree. Edgewater restaurant is so beautiful. Thanks for the reminder. I have not been there for years, and will take my family again this summer.

It looks like I have a lot more exploring to do this summer LOL.

I personally like Salty's on Alki. It's very reasonable and if you get a view it is gorgeous. A romantic thing you can do there is overlook the city from that one park on top of the hill. It's a classic 50s-60s make-out point.

There's another awesome French restaurant in Pike Place ... I forgot the name of it ... but it's near the fish market, and the food is divine! They can be rude though ... true French style.

You probably ought to add Rover's to the lsit of the fanciest in Seattle. On Madison Street, heading towards Lake Washington. It gets rave reviews and is considered by some to be the best in town. I ate there once, but I'm more of a pizza and barbecue kind of guy, so I don't appreciate fancy food.

Thanks for the props. It is by far my favorite place. I always go for drinks with friends to celebrate the first day of Summer and the longest day of the year. I'll miss it this year as my job has me working in CT but at least I will still have the salt water and the boats.

in answer to your question, there are a lot of options (I'm assuming you're not including booze in the $80 dinner for two).

Lark
Quinn's
Saltoro

The trick? Avoid the downtown, heavily publicized ones. Great food available there to be sure, but the neighborhoods are where magic happens, be it Madison Valley, Capitol Hill, Broadview, or Ballard.

I would say Canlis or Le Gourmand. I have been to Le Gourmand (anniversary dinner for me and the GF) and can say that it was an excellent experience from start to finish. We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu (7-course) with accompanying wine flight. Absolutely incredible. And, for what you get, very well priced in my opinion. I think the final bill with tip was right around $300/350. The best part was seeing the look on her face with each new course and paired wine - scored some *serious* boyfriend points. ;-)

For those who didn't see it this week, the Seattle Times mentioned some of the restaurants mentioned in this thread (like Canlis and Six Seven) in a look at notable (not all fancy) waterfront dining spots.
