Valentine's Day - our 5 restaurant picks for a deliciously romantic dinner

It's only a few days away so we thought we'd give our two cents on the restaurants with a Valentine's Day prix fixe menu that looks oh-so-tempting!  And it's not just for couples anymore, one of the restaurants we picked actually has a "singles" communal table, where you can spend the night mingling with good food and great company!

Without further ado, here's five restaurants that Clara and I picked for Valentine's Day:

Osteria Dei Ganzi
(review from our last visit)

Vday Offering: 3 course prix fixe & prosecco
Price: $40 per person
Dates: February 13 - 16
Menu: click here

I haven't been to Ganzi since visiting shortly after they opened last summer, but I am heading there for my Valentine's dinner.  There are a few reasons why I chose to go here.  The restaurant is inside a beautiful historic mansion (so romantic), their menu is enticing, and for their Pastry Chef, Sonia Cecchi's desserts.  With their relaxed ambiance, you're sure to have a memorable dinner there.

Vday Offering: Special Menu for groups of 3+ / Communal Table
Price: $50 per person for tables of 3+ / $25 per person at communal table
Dates: February 14 & 15
Menu: click here

Luma is offering something new this Valentine's Day weekend called 'Group Love.' For groups of three or more, they're offering a shareable menu for the table to enjoy together.  Another option is to join other singles at their communal table, where you can make new friends who share your passion for food! Are you ready to mingle?

Cibo Wine Bar is letting you make the call as to which featured items you choose from the menu to celebrate Valentine's Day.  This trendy and romantic venue with perfect lighting will have you and your date indulging in fresh pasta and a wide selection of wine. 


Vday Offering: Valentine's Tasting Menu
Dates: February 14
Price: $110 per couple or $150 per couple with wine
Menu: click here

There's something sexy about Indian food.  Instead of doing another dinner at your favourite restaurant, spoil your senses with aromatic Indian Cuisine.  Just so that you can get a taste of what Pukka is all about, they're offering a tasting menu (with or without wine) that lets you indulge in a little bit of everything on their menu. 

Spice Route
(review from our last visit)

Vday Offering: Featured Menu Items
Dates: February 14

Spice Route Bistro & Bar on King West really sets the mood for a romantic date or a night out for singles, ready to mingle!  Their Asian-influenced decor and menu offers everything from sharing plates, surf & turf to delectable sushi and noodles. If you have a big group, ask for one of their private rooms for teppanyaki with a private chef!

Some other worthwhile restaurants with Valentine's Menus:
  • Annona at the Park Hyatt (menu) $185 - $225
  • Katsura at Westin Prince Hotel (menu) $85 - $100
  • Cafe Boulud at Four Seasons (menu) $95
  • Drake One Fifty (menu) $75
  • Biff's Bistro (menu) $60

That is all - we hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
