You’ll find a large selection of fish and shellfish on the menu selected from their catches of the day and if you don’t care for seafood, you can choose from among their critically acclaimed aged steaks.

6. Vic & Anthony’s

You don’t find much more sophistication in a steakhouse than at Vic & Anthony’s. Engaging with your date at the bar before or after dinner can really set the romantic mood. Here you will find dim lighting and a live piano player. Aside from steaks you will also find fresh seafood and an extensive wine list.

7. Bistro Alex

The décor is one of wood planks and a French color scheme. The food is simple, yet flavorful. If you want your date to be an adventure, experiment with new flavors such as the acclaimed Simmered Red Rabbit Confit with Candied Onions and Prunes. If you want to play it safe, they offer pizzas and soups as well.

9. Mockingbird Bistro

Mockingbird Bistro puts out a sophisticated yet funky vibe. This allows it both be high class and cool at the same time. Its food is Texas Provence- think America meets the French Riviera. The Mockingbird has an award winning wine list, but don’t let that scare your wallet because it is also known for being the best value in town.

10. Giacomo’s Cibo e Vino

Romantic doesn’t have to mean stuffy, as evidenced by this laid-back yet breathtaking Italian eatery off Lower Shepherd. Rustic Italian fare, along with an accessible and friendly wine list and high-end gelato come together to make for a date you won’t soon forget.

Now that your appetite is awakened and your heart is inspired, invite your sweetie out for a night on the town in Houston. Be sure to call ahead and make reservations to ensure great seating, though. If you want your night to continue after your meal, consider heading over to Hermann Park for a stroll through the Japanese Gardens or spending the night at the Hotel Zaza, where you can spend the evening having drinks by the luxurious pool or dessert at its eatery, The Monarch.
