Most Romantic Restaurants in Los Angeles
Beverly Hills is the perfect setting to celebrate special occasions with your loved one. Whether you’re looking for quaint, secluded eateries or an elegant fine dining experience, the city offers a variety of options for your perfect night out, with candlelit rooms, live music and more.
Il Cielo has long been known as one of the most romantic restaurant in Los Angeles, compliments of its candlelit tables and dreamy dining space under the stars.
The restaurant offers three romantic packages, which can be added on to any dining reservation, ranging in price from $20 to $75. Surprise your love with a half bottle of Piper Heidsieck Champagne and a heart-shaped flourless chocolate cake with a special message of your choice written across the plate in chocolate script. If you’re in search of a more intimate dining space, Il Cielo’s private dining rooms can be customized to fit any occasion.
No matter where you choose to be seated, you’ll delight in authentic Italian dishes like Linguine Alle Vongole, Carpaccio and Loup D Mer, paired with a glass of fine Italian wine.
Tagine Beverly Hills
Tagine, a Moroccan hideaway in Beverly Hills with jazz music and candlelit tables, brings an enchanting twist to the cuisine’s exotic tastes.
Chef Ben Benameur and his co-owner, Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling, wanted to create a place where the food is made with love and leaves guests feeling warm and satisfied. Together they brought this idea to life by offering a modern take on Moroccan cuisine and mixing in a bit of traditional Moroccan décor.
The menu pays homage to centuries-old Moroccan cooking recipes including a hummus recipe from Chef Benameur’s mother, served with marinated olives, sautéed eggplants and Berbere bread. Tagine is an ideal location for date night as the lighting is low, cushions are plush and with only nine tables filling the room, you’ll feel as if it’s just the two of you.
La Dolce Vita
La Dolce Vita has been described as “throwback Italian,” with its dark red circular booths, brick walls, white clothed tables and authentic Northern Italian cuisine. The restaurant truly sets the stage for a romantic night out, serving dishes such as braised osso bucco, baked lasagna and chicken scaloppini, while also offering an enticing dessert menu with sweets like gelato, cannoli, tiramisu and many more Italian favorites.
Take a page out of romantic crooner Frank Sinatra’s book and ask for a seat at his favorite booth, which the restaurant dedicated to his name in 2012. Then, order a bottle of red Sassicaia which Mr. Sinatra often shared with his wife.
If you’re just out for a drink and a snack, head to the bar and enjoy a glass of wine or a unique cocktail and appetizers like crispy calamari, bruschetta and antipasto.
Whether you are looking for an intimate dining experience or a quick drink with that special someone, La Dolce Vita’s charming ambiance will help you create a memorable evening.
