I think it goes without saying, but finding a romantic spot to spend date night is often at the top of the wish list. While romantic might not be your typical go-to...take it up a notch for your special one! We do believe showing someone what they mean to you should be a year-round venture, but February is always a great excuse to step it up. To make it easier for you, and save you the time spent searching, we put together the top 10 most romantic restaurants in Denver.
#10. Fruition - locally sourced food and a quiet setting makes Fruition a top choice for romantic nights. Without being pretentious, the food is off the chart and you will feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. Take time to fully enjoy this Valentine's Day date night locale and save room for dessert!
#9. Nocturne - more than just a jazz club, Nocturne offers delicious small plates that will let you snuggle into the booth and leave reality for the night. Live jazz playing, sipping amazing drinks, and eating mouth watering food...all are great makings for a very romantic evening.
#8. Izakaya Den - this Japanese gastro pub will make you fall in love with sushi, if you weren't in love already. Sushi not your thing? Izakaya Den has many options that will make you say the word 'divine' over and over again. Hard to believe, but the ambiance beats the food! The combination of wood, glass, and traditional Japanese style will make you want to linger over sake and never let the date end.
#7. LeRoux - this newcomer is already taking Denver by storm. LeRoux will impress from the moment you step in the door with beautiful chandeliers, tufted leather benches, candles on every table, and a bistro setting. The European inspired cuisine takes the experience to the next level. Amazing wine tops off the night!
#6. Vesta - craft cocktails and an intimate setting make Vesta one of the most romantic date options in Denver. Warm and inviting are key terms in the operation of Vesta. This will be evident in the service and the food. Shareable small plates and a large list of dipping sauces with mouth water meats makes for great conversation and memorable date nights!
#5. Beatrice & Woodsley - you will feel like the only two people in the world at Beatrice & Woodsley. The rustic, quiet, romantic setting makes you forget about everything that was on your mind before you walked in! Focus on your date, on your Valentine, and spend the evening lost in conversation and amazing food.
#4. Barolo Grill - you will find one of the best fireplaces in Denver at Barolo Grill. You will be transported from Denver to northern Italy and you will not want to come back! Elegance is the name of the game at Barolo Grill, from the food to the ambiance to the wine. Spend a couple of hours reconnecting and enjoy a meal that you will not stop talking about!
#3. Bistro Vendome - sneaking in a kiss across the table is not uncommon at Bistro Vendome. The French know romance and Bistro Vendome is no different. You will fall in the love with the food, with the 'bistro' setting, and with the warm community feeling. Make sure you enjoy a bottle of bubbly to top it all off!
#2. El Five - both the view and the food are elevated at El Five. The Mediterranean menu will have you talking about this date for a long time! The atmosphere is sexy and romantic and the food will make you swoon. Show your Valentine what they mean to you and treat them to an experience you both will soon not forget.
#1. Tavernetta - while reservations are extremely hard to get at Tavernetta, trying to get one of the tables available for walk-ins is worth it! This unbelievable chef duo has worked their magic again for Denver to enjoy. Unmatched Italian cuisine and a world-class wine list are certainly a draw, but the fireplace lounge is where you find the romance. The hospitality will make you feel right at home and the ambiance will make you fall in love all over again...of course, the wine will help too!
