yes, this restaurant is incredibly romantic, and the house/neighborhood lend itself well to that. however, i thought that i would mention, this is also a really good place for large groups, too. a couple of years ago, about 10 of my friends and our dates, reserved the 2nd floor for a saturday night dinner. (the only smoking area, btw) it was such an intimate, relaxing, wonderful night! there was a dining room, lounge, and bar all for us. atmosphere and service were excellent!
