Halle Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez shared a romantic dinner at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood on Saturday.
"Halle looked spectacular," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was lovely."
Sitting in the upstairs patio that overlooks the main dining room, the couple sampled dishes from Executive Chef Pascal Lorange's new fall menu including jamón ibérico, truffle risotto, sautéed spinach with fig, garlic and Marcona almonds.
They paired the dishes with glasses of white wine and Rosé.
Berry's latest film, Cloud Atlas, costarring Tom Hanks and Hugh Grant, opens in theaters Oct. 26.

Following their closing performance at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, Sir Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen made their way to the Foo Fighters' after-party at Fig & Olive Melrose Place. No sooner did they get there than Johnny Depp arrived and grabbed a glass of wine and a seat in the lounge, cordially greeting friends and fans.
At one point, McCartney approached Depp and mimicked his signature Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Jack Sparrow walk – which resulted in lots of laughter. Depp then joined the former Beatle and his wife for dinner; McCartney, a vegetarian, stuck to dishes like the spaghetti Mediterraneano and vegetarian paella. By the end of the evening, fast friends McCartney, Springsteen and Depp were seen discussing the night's big awards and all the winners.
