Fresh off the season finale of The Voice, Christina Aguilera was able to squeeze in a relaxing night out with son Max and beau Matt Rutler.
The trio dined at Wolfgang Puck's fancy eatery at Hotel Bel-Air on Saturday.
Although the meal had a low-key vibe, an onlooker says the food was on the "sophisticated" side.
"They had dishes such as caviar while chatting through their meal," the source tells PEOPLE. "They looked very happy while enjoying their quiet family dinner in one of the restaurant's alcoves."

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck will be in charge of feeding nearly 2,000 guests at the Academy Awards ceremony this year, his 18th consecutive year as the official Oscars chef. This year, he has a comfort-food bonanza planned – though past plans haven't always gone so smoothly, as he tells PEOPLE:
What do you have to do to take care that the menu doesn't seem to favor a particular nominee?
Puck: We don't pair our menu to movies or actors who are nominated. From our smoked-salmon Oscars to the ever-popular 24-karat-gold-covered chocolate Oscars, the menu is always something that stands alone. After all, it's not about one movie, it's about the Oscars.
Is there a particular Oscars dinner that you've done in the past that you use as the bar for future Oscar dinners?

Chef Wolfgang Puck has a standing date every year for the Academy Awards: He caters the star-studded Governors Ball after the awards show. This year, Puck says, the theme is 1930s glamour – and, he tells PEOPLE, "we'll have the food to match it."
"The celebrities who come to the Oscars ceremony haven’t eaten for hours, so when they come to our dinner, they’re hungry and they expect to get great food," Puck says of the bash. "And nobody pays attention to their diet."
On this year's menu? A crispy potato galette with smoked salmon, followed by a main course of organic chicken pot pie with black truffles and root vegetables. First, though, guests will start with sushi and shrimp, oyster and crab, served with cocktail sauce, mustard sauce and mignonette, a vinegar and shallot sauce to be served with the oysters.
The 1,500 guests will also nosh on buffet-style appetizers, including mini Kobe beef cheeseburgers, assorted pizzas and tempura shrimp.
