Suggestions for Valentine's Day

Where is a good place for dinner that's not overly priced? I've been looking online at different restaurants and menus, but all they provide is the menu but no price with it.

Stupid restaurants just want me to book it and eat there and surprise me with a huge bill at the end of the dinner.

Salad makes me squirt ranch dressing. Only half of that is an analogy.

Seasons in the Park. It isn't as expensive as other places plus the view is amazing.

Was just at DB Bistro Moderne last week before the day before the dineout started and they had a valentines day set... i think it was 80$. The food there was really good tho. I think Lumiere has valentines day set for 135.

alright, I went there yesterday for dinner & their service just blew me away. The atmosphere was way more romantic that I expected. Food was beyond excellent. I've never had such wonderful piece of steak, ever. It just melts in my mouth. I take back wut I said & admit that I was talking out from my ass.

Personally I'm not sure why people love Seasons and why it is ranked so high on Dinehere.ca

View is dope there is no argueing that but the food is avg at best imo.

My suggestion is Diva At The Met or Connor Butler although they are on the "pricier" side if you will.

which would you guys recommend between lumiere and joe fortes? i know there's a huge discrepancy in the prices, but everything on the fortes menu looks good to me; whereas some things on the lumiere menu i would rather pass on, even though they give you options. i haven't been to lumiere since they changed chefs either and i've heard the quality has gone down since. so basically, with that in mind, would you guys still say lumiere is worth the extra price tag?

But.. the new Chef de Cuisine at Lumiere is Dale Mackay, who works under Chef Daniel Boulud (which has extremely high standards) so I don't think the quality has gone down and has rather gone up.
