Ten Tables in JP is awesome, romantic and totally reasonable. They also do local in season food.

Not counting special deals, just everyday menus, a few romantic places I like that aren't too pricey:
Ten Tables (I like the ambience of the JP one more than the Cambridge one, though the food is the same at both
Grotto on Beacon Hill
Ecco in East Boston
Estragon in the South End
Casa Portugal in East Cambridge
Addis Red Sea in the South End
Macchu Pichu in Union Square. Especially if they have live music. Its dark, exotic, cozy and not loud.
Giacomo's North End (great italian food)
Bar Lola in the Back Bay (tapa style, great sangria)
75 Chestnut in Beacon Hill (tucked away, great food and townhouse vibe).
Sophia's Grotto, in Roslindale Village. Afterwards you can go by Solera next door for a bottle of wine.
224 Boston St Dorchester.
Gaslight on Harrison Ave is consistently good, fairly priced and is evocative of a Paris bistro.
If you don't mind the noise, Dali in Somerville is dark and romantic. Especially when the waiters throw a little Spanish around.

Park in Harvard Square with their extensive drink list and classic library-type decor. Because books and booze are damn sexy.
Spiga, in Needham MA Very nice ambience, very good food.
