Places to take a date in Richmond?

Hey everyone, can anyone give me some places to go to for a "romantic" place with my date? I know there's not a lot in Richmond, but naming any on the top of your head would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Steveston?

Check out Gudrun if you like cheese and wine. (I went there last Saturday and used a Groupon, it was good)

Any of the resturant by the fisherman's wharf are all quite "romantic"
Charthouse, sockeye City, shady island are all decent seafood resturant places. Food is average, but view/mood is nice.

I don't know your budget/timing constraints but there is a restaurant located inside the new Westin (or was it Sheraton?) off Bridgeport and No. 3 Rd. The chef there has a few amazing dishes and has earned its reputation as a hidden gem.

Edit: It's called The Apron. The chef is the renowned Hamid Salimian who cooked at Diva @ The Met and The Westin Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria. I believe The Apron is also on the Dine Out Vancouver list.

The Apron's Facebook page. Hope that helps!

^There's a menu on their website that he posted.

I also like the set dinner menus at Hakkasan. Unfortunately, their location is not very romantic though, lol

Just check out their menu. For example...dinner would be this: http://www.starwoodhotels.com/pub/me...inner_Menu.pdf
Their pricing aren't that bad for a fine dining experience.

They also have 5 courses meal ($50), 7 courses meal ($70), and 9 courses meal ($90.)
If the $50 one is in your budget, it should be able to impress your date

Sorry, I didn't get a chance to go. I called with the intention of reserving a table for 2 to have dinner. Unfortunately they were packed and could not accomodate since today was the last Dine Out night.

I'll try again later on this week or next week.
