Paris restaurants

Looking to celebrate our 25th anniversary with a nice romantic dinner in the heart of Paris , does anyone know of a restaurant that has good food , good price nice ambiance for around 70 euros p.p , the issue is both my husband and i are not seafood eaters and after viewing many menu's online to some of these restaurants we noticed alot seafood is offered , can anyone suggest a nice steakhouse or italian place around the middle of paris would be our first choice
thanks in advance

Have a look at La Fermette Marbeuf ( It's relatively close to the Arc de Triomphe. Very, very Parisan decor, good food and under your 70 euro max.

This is a meat-centric place:
It's quite affordable too!
There may be salmon on their menu, but the presentation would be laden with contempt.

I would never try to compare a U.S. steakhouse to any sort of attempts at mimicking that in Europe.
Stick to the braised cuts, forcemeats, foie gras and rack of lamb (carré d'agneau).

We really liked La Regelade, the rue Saint Honore location which is just a couple blocks from the Louvre. We went on a Friday night when Louvre is open late, spent some time there then went for our 9:30 reservation.
Also, and I know I've said this before, Bistrot Paul Bert is a great restaurant with a great menu, huge wine list, lots of personality. I had pigeon and my wife had steak, both very good, though steak is truly different in France...

Reserve a few weeks ahead for either one, and do not be late. Some Paris restaurants will ask that you call them to confirm on the day of reservation. La Regelade can be reserved via email, BPB by phone only, and yes they speak English.
You may find this of interest, one of the places it covers is Le Severo, said to be a great steak place:

And Bill-

You are pretty much killin' me here; that's well said!

We enjoyed a lovely meal at La Cordonnerie near the Tuilleries. It is a small one chef place with good food and the chef is helpful with the wine selection. If they have the grilled foie gras with cocoa sauce get it.
