How to Choose a Romantic Restaurant

January 21, 2009


When you’re with the right person, it won’t matter if you eat dinner at McDonald’s or the most expensive and luxurious restaurant in town. However, it’s nice to occasionally treat yourself to a truly romantic dinner, and since cooking and cleaning isn’t fun to do together EVERYDAY, a romantic restaurant may be in order!

Below are some tips on how to choose a romantic restuarant:

1. Choose a Quiet Place: To be romantic, it helps if you and your partner can actually sit down and talk to one another and enjoy one another’s company. While going to a noisy sports bar together might be a ton of fun, it’s not exactly ROMANTIC. So find a quiet place that’s not too busy, has a good buffer between tables, and lets you and your partner focus on each other.

2. Consider Setting: There are many types of different settings. A scenic or city view can be romantic, so can a place with lit candles on each table. Pick a restuarant based on a setting you know your partner will enjoy. You may also want to consider what attractions are around the restaurant – could you fit in a romantic walk with that romantic dinner too?

3. Demand Excellent Service: I will not enjoy myself if we end up waiting 45 minutes for our food since placing an order or if the waitress never comes back to refill my husband’s glass of water or coffee. If you know that the place doesn’t have excellent service, move on to a restaurant that does and deserves your business. You’ll have a much better time.

4. Consider the Food: I don’t think there’s a rule on what types of foods are more romantic to eat out than others, but at the same time, it’s way more romantic to be eating Chicken Alfredo than a giant cheeseburger, don’t you think? (Ah, I know, if you’re really in love, who cares? It’s cute when that ketchup drips on their chin!)

5. Stay in Budget: While its nice to get out and indulge once in awhile, be careful about overspending – you won’t feel so great about the romance if all you can think about is how expensive the food is or that your dinner cost more than your monthly cell phone bill!
