Denver’s Most Romantic Restaurants

With Valentine’s Day approaching you’re probably beginning to wonder which are Denver’s Most Romantic Restaurants. With spectacular views, creative cuisine, and intimate ambiance, Denver has plenty of opportunities to romance your sweetheart. We’ve created a cheat sheet to help you choose the perfect spot to not only enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day, but to have picture perfect date nights throughout the year as well.

El Five

Rising five stories high above the rest of the Lower Highlands the view is second to none. This joint boasts spectacular, unobstructed views of the downtown Denver skyline, perfect for unrivaled sunsets. The glowing space features a show kitchen as the centerpiece, two remarkable patios, and walls lined with vintage Turkish cinema posters.

Half of the menu is tapas oriented and the beautifully presented plates draw inspiration from Eastern Mediterranean and North African countries such as Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, and Israel. The menu is heavily meat-centric, but with a wonderful mix of bright, and flavorful vegetarian dishes.

Beatrice and Woodsley

Nestled amidst an urban aspen grove, Beatrice & Woodsley combines sociable dining with seasonal Rustic-American menus. Simple ingredients, careful technique, and adventurous imagination provides for a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

They create fun-loving menus with seasonal, local, and conscientious ingredients. Our kitchen offers plentiful garden-focused vegetarian items as well as limited-dietary restriction menus; accommodating both dairy-free and gluten-free diets.

Nocturne Jazz Club

From their shareable small plates, to seasonal large plates, Nocturne seeks to create an intimate and unique culinary experience. Whether you are seeking a properly made classic cocktail, a seasonally crafted new-fangled creation or are ready to pop open a bottle of champagne, Nocturne has what you need to quench your thirst.

Their stage and acoustically designed room plays host to live jazz nightly 7pm -10:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in an eight week performance run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a particular era or genre of jazz, or their own original works.

Beast + Bottle

The “beast” refers to the restaurant’s appreciation for the whole animal, utilizing all parts to honor its integrity. The “bottle” refers to drinks. B +B’s wine selection is influenced by the European tradition of drinking wine how you’d like – whether that’s a glass or by the liter.

Beast and Bottle’s food and drink menus are inspired by seasonal progression and feature ingredients sourced from local farms and purveyors. They aim to create an inclusive, fine-dining experience by serving only fresh, responsibly sourced ingredients. They strive to bring Denver the freshest seasonal food and drinks possible.

Izakaya Den

Izakaya Den is a Japanese gastro pub serving global cuisine. Different textures and flavors from all over the world come together to create new taste sensations.  The menu is tapas style. The smaller portions allow you to order a few dishes and share, taking advantage of the exhilarating variety.

While much of the artwork and other stylistic details were imported from Japan, Izakaya Den is ultimately more sophisticated than your working stiffs’ pub. Its unique atmosphere is a cross between Japanese elegance and all those building materials that make a space upscale and modern.

The Melting Pot

Voted one of Colorado’s most romantic restaurants, The Melting Pot is a dining experience you won’t soon forget. The elegant and romantic atmosphere, eclectic decor, and spectacular cuisine make The Melting Pot a perfect place for a romantic date night.

Combine delicious cheese fondues prepared table side, fresh salads, and exquisite entrées, including your choice of seafood, steak, poultry, pasta, and fresh local vegetables. Finish the 4-course dining experience with one of our decadent chocolate fondues.

Bistro Vendome

Named for the Place Vendome in the heart of Paris, this cozy bistro is a favorite among cosmopolitan Denverites seeking authentic Parisian fare. Despite its location on Larimer Square, the bistro maintains its charm as a hidden secret surrounded by brick walls, ivy and shady trees.

Timeless classics like onion soup, steak frites, and escargot vie for attention alongside more modern, seasonally driven creations, giving guests plenty of options. Leave Denver behind and spend an evening in Paris.
