Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (next week!). If you’re looking for someplace romantic to take your significant other for dinner, here’s a list of some of our Twin Cities favorites.



At this French bistro, seafood is king. With a rating of 4.4 out of 5 on Google, it’s no wonder that Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, were seen here eating oysters during Super Bowl week. Recent reviewers on Google said, “Well-executed French cuisine in an unassuming locale” and “Hands down my favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities.”


112 Eatery

With many delicious dishes less than $12, there are numerous reasons that this acclaimed spot pictured above has been drawing crowds since opening in 2005. There’s something for everyone to like on the menu, and many items are best enjoyed when shared. Reviewers said: “All the food is amazing here, but I can’t get over how wonderful the burger is!!!” and “The foie gras meatballs and pasta dish is perfection on a plate.”


Restaurant Alma

If locally sourced ingredients are your thing, Restaurant Alma is your place. The restaurant recently went through a transformation to become three things: a café, hotel, and restaurant. While everything on the menu is known to be delicious, Bon Appétit recommends smoked whitefish tartine, tomato-bread soup, and brownie sundae in the café. Reviewers on Google rated Restaurant Alma 4.6 out of 5.

This classic restaurant reflects old St. Paul with its dark wood furniture, fireplace and elegant chandeliers. Check out the love seats in the basement for a cozy place to be with your loved one. W.A. Frost and Company has a 4.4 out of 5 rating on Google. Reviewers raved about the “wonderful intimate setting” and the “fantastic vibe.”
