Where to take my Mama for dinner in NYC?

My mom and I are meeting up in NYC for our annual city christmas walkabout. We're staying in Times Square and want to go out for a memorable meal on Friday night.
I know there are a million questions about NYC restaurants but here are my parameters: My mom is picky. She literally thinks ketchup is spicy. Pretty much anything you'd lump in the "ethnic food" category is out. She's very into French things. For reference, I live in Philly and she loooved Bistrot La Minette
. As for me, I love all food and I especially like really good food in cozy places.
Since it's just the two of us, I'd love to go someplace kind of sophisticated "girly", cozy, I guess what would be considered "romantic" but not "sexy" because it's...my mom. Looking for someplace in Manhattan. Walking distance to Times Square preferred but we can travel on the subway with no problem. My ideal place would be non-cheesy, non-touristy, not overly pretentious, fancy but reasonable (<$150 for the two of us). Thank you!
