I was in Singapore for a one-week vacation, and ended up spending half my nights having dinner and drinks at the Boat Quay/Clarke Quay areas. This area is especially beautiful at night, and even though the quay runs along the entire strip, you can't detect any "fishy" or "salty" smell of the ocean, so you can have a pleasant dinner experience right by the water :)
Boat Quay has a vast and varied selection of restaurants- anything from seafood to Mediterranean, Chinese to Turkish, Indian to Italian. Our most memorable dinner was at a Middle Eastern restaurant, but regretfully, I can't remember the name. Sorry :(
I also really appreciate that the restaurants along Boat Quay are open till quite late. Most of them stay open till past midnight, and you can order right up till 11 pm or so. Boat Quay is quiet, romantic, and you can definitely enjoy great food over some great conversation. Then after dinner, you can easily walk down the Quay for five minutes to Clarke Quay, where it is more boisterous and crowded with "party people". If you want drinks, dance, and music, here is the place to go after dinner!
