Open Table is the big name when it comes to making online restaurant reservations, so when they release a list of the 100 most romantic restaurants in America, we listen. Going out to eat with a partner is a fun thing most people love doing, but considering the ambiance of a restaurant along with the food can improve those enjoyable experiences even more. Whether you’re prepping for Valentine’s day, a birthday, or want an especially romantic date night, these are the restaurants that have your back. Even if we have to travel a bit to get there, these cute spots are worth it.
Open Table’s list of the most romantic restaurants was compiled from crunching the data from 80 diner reviews for over 30,000 restaurants across all 50 states. If you’re wondering who topped out on this list, Illinois, California, and Pennsylvania are leading the way in romantic restaurants.
Aba restaurant in Chicago, Illinois, will not surprise you as making it on to this list once you see a photo. With warm lighting and lush plants all around, this is a restaurant we’d want to visit even if there was no food. But there is plenty of food, and it’s just as good as the romantic decor.
Miro’s restaurant has been serving Palm Springs for 26 years now, so they must be doing something right. We might have to travel a little way out into the desert to get there, but that only adds to the mystique that places this spot on the list of the most romantic restaurants. With brick wall interiors and a beautiful outdoor garden area, it’s easy to understand why Miro’s is a date night favorite.
Tar and Roses is the kind of restaurant that has perfected both their ambiance and their menu. This spot made it on to the list of most romantic restaurants for its excellent wine selection and beautiful floor to ceiling windows indoors. Definitely a memorable place to spend time with your sweetheart.
These are just a few of the ridiculously romantic restaurants we’re ready to travel all over for, even if that means it will be a date night with friends!
