Kind of off topic, but I need to find a classy place in boston to do dinner and dancing......Yeah yeah I know, I dont dance but sometimes you have to work for what you want, if you get my drift. I tried the spirit of boston and the odyssey and the yacht starship.
Anyone have any ideas, doesnt have to be a cruise just a nice place with all that stuff would work fine. FYI, i dont mind driving but wouldnt like to go to the cape. By the way, its this wednesday.

Take her to the North End and them a walk around Fanual Hall, works every time. Save your energy and skip the dancing. Plenty of places around there if you must dance

Take her to Olive's in Charlestown, and then you can head over to Modern Pastry for some dessert and espresso.

Try the "Up On The Roof" deck at Fiore's on Hanover Street if it a nice night.

I can't help you on the dancing part. I've did all the dancing I ever want to do in my lifetime at our wedding reception, 17 years ago.
For dinner, try Hammersley's Bistro (expensive).
Last year we tried Meritage -- the restaurant at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Great view, but stupid prices and the food didn't live up to the billing.
It has been a couple years since we went to L'Espalier. Very, very expensive, but excellent food. Aujourd'hui at the Four Seasons is an excellent restaurant as well, but even more stupidly expensive and not a lot of atmosphere in the dining room. We haven't tried Locke-Ober since Lydia Shire took it over, but it might be worth a look (don't expect to park nearby, of course).

In Super Chef, I noted that Todd English's flagship Olives in Charlestown, MA, was closed twice for health violations that included rodent droppings and improperly stored meat and chemicals (p. 114). Of course, Olives is not an isolated case, and I'm not talking about the greasy spoon around the corner. The New York Post reports of New York City, "More than half of the city's 50 most popular restaurants were cited last year by health inspectors for stomach-churning violations that included evidence of mice, flies and roaches." Restaurants include such famed and venerable institutuions as Gramercy Tavern (Super Chef, pp. 187-192), Blue Water Grill, Le Bernardin, Chanterelle, Craft (Super Chef, pp. 192-197), Danube, Balthazar, Blue Ribbon, Cafe des Artistes, and Asia de Cuba.

I second, Hammersly's also you might try Mistral,
you are on your own for dancing, you have to remember Boston is full of Irish guys..we do not dance, we drink
Lucca's on Hanover st. in the North End. Olives in Charlestown, Ruth Criss on School st. (good steaks), and maybe Davio's, across from the Park Plaza hotel.....
