Of course not! We’ve rounded up the best deals for your dinner date. Make your reservations early for a super fun evening at any of these restaurants. The hardest part is to choose just one, because these specials are guaranteed to make your V-Day extra special!
Cafe Del Rey Marina
4451 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, 310-823-6395
There’s nothing like sharing the love! This restaurant celebrates the heart — quite literally, by offering heart-friendly cocktails and donating a portion of their proceeds to the American Heart Association. And this restaurant celebrates the stomach too, because executive chef Daniel Roberts is crafting a menu featuring signature dishes with the freshest ingredients for $75 per person.
923 E. 3rd St., Downtown, 213-620-0781
Seat you and your leading man at the bistro, where couples are treated to a series of five courses and a program of delights. Chef Juan Pablo Torre serves up a culinary experience paired with scenes of love from the works of Shakespeare presented by actors from the Archway Theatre for $95 per couple. Watch Romeo and Juliet, Rosalind and Orlando as you play a part in your own love story.
Duplex on Third
8722 W. 3rd St., Beverly Hills, 310-276-6223
Whether you’re coupled up or singled out, Duplex on Third has the perfect arrangement for you. Downstairs, executive chef Larry Greenwood is dishing up a four-course, shared-plate meal including everything from Maine lobster tails to blackberry shortbread pie! This assortment of flavors and tastes is available for $75 per person. And upstairs, Duplex brings you “Upstairs Uncoupled,” offering “un-V-Day” cocktails and a small-bites menu. Upstairs is just the location to scout out your date for downstairs, so start mingling!
Caulfield’s Bar & Dining Room
9360 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-388-6860
It promises a “Best First Date,” but can it deliver the results? Well for starters, beverage director Jeremy Back and bartender Pierre Dos Santos will offer bartending lessons. You can learn how to make a “Cupid’s Arrow” cocktail for your catch! For dinner, chef Stephen Kalt is serving a delicious three-course menu for $68 per person. Sounds to us like a date guaranteed to land on your top 5 at the very least!
LA Market Restaurant at JW Marriot
900 W. Olympic Blvd., Downtown, 213-765-8630
Hosted by celebrity chef Kerry Simon, LA Market Restaurant is offering a three-course menu for $60 per person. What’s most special about the menu is the signature V-Day-themed Junk Food Platter of heart-shaped chocolate Rice Krispie treats, Hostess-style cupcakes with white chocolate ganache, and many more treats! After dinner, head over to the nearby Electric Dusk Drive-In, where they’ll be playing When Harry Met Sally, arguably the best rom-com ever. The movie starts at 8, so get your popcorn early and be ready to snuggle up to your very own Billy Crystal (because who doesn’t want to be Meg Ryan!).
NineThirty Restaurant at the W Hotel Westwood
930 Hilgard Ave., Westwood, 310-443-8211
If you’re looking for an extra special treat this Valentine’s Day, check out the menu at NineThirty, the restaurant in the W Hotel Westwood! They’re offering an eight-course menu for $85 a person, and while the price tag may be steep, those dollars will be well spent! You simply can’t go wrong with dishes like squid-ink pasta, Kobe beef tartare, gnocchi, and short ribs, to name a few; we’re practically drooling already! Your man and your tastebuds will be in heaven after this delectable dinner. Afterward, enjoy a post-dinner cocktail at the swanky hotel bar, or maybe even get a room and head upstairs to continue the V-Day festivities. Chocolate is an aphrodisiac, after all!
