Washington D.C. Best Restaurant/Best Birthday Dinner Spot?

I'm in D.C. for the summer with my boyfriend, and we're both really into great food. I want to take him somewhere spectacular for his birthday in July; any suggestions? We're not picky at all (also we do eat meat), and I'm willing to pay . Somewhere with outdoor seating or beautiful decor would be a plus, but the food and service are most important. We are living in NOVA but I'm happy to take him anywhere in the DC area, and I do have access to a car. Please help! He likes French food but appreciates almost every cuisine. I want to plan now to make a reservation, so suggestions would be much appreciated.
