Romantic Date Ideas?? Pleasanton/Livermore Area
I am from out of town and will be taking a very special female out that night. She lives in the area and I do not. However, I want to take her someplace nice and upscale. Cost isn't as much as an issue as long as it is an all around great restaurant.
i am basically looking for not a super romantic obvious type of restaurant, but not some greasy spoon either. Just looking at a place that women would very much like to go to. Good food, ambiance and a decent wine list are all things I'd like to find.
Also, any recommendations of what to do afterwards? Any quaint lounges to grab a drink? Anywhere that has a live band play we can just go have a good time?
Thanks in advance!
Claude and Dominiques sounds like a good fit. Nice, small French restaurant in downtown Pleasanton.
The Restaurant at Wente Vineyard is nice. Although it could fall into the "obviously romantic" category.
Hap's and Mcnamara's are both relatively nice steakhouses, though you'd be much better off driving to Danville (10-15 min.) and going to Forbes Mill if an upscale steakhouse is what you're after.
