Romantic dinner in Baltimore

casper28 Feb 19, 2008 04:53 AM

I am looking for a nice place to take my husband for his birthday. I am looking for something romantic but not too pricey. We usually go to Ixia, La Tavola, or Petit Louis for special occasions, but I would like to try something new. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    At the recommendation of B'more Hounds we celebrated my bday at Henninger's a couple month's back. It fit the exact bill that you're describing. Ask for a table in the room behind the bar. It's an intimate romantic setting with delectable food that's not ridicuoulsy priced. And be sure to have a drink at the bar beforehand and chat with the owner and bartender (forget his name but he's a hoot).

      Pazo is a pretty good date place. I haven't been for awhile and heard the menu changed a bit. Also: Brewer's Art, Bicycle, Birches, Salt, Cinghiale, Three... and Pazza Luna.

        Cinghiale is way too noisy to be considered romantic, at least in my opinion.

          Cinghale is way to inconsistent to be a good romantic meal- We just did a birthday meal there and it was well inconsistent.
          I love Martik's for a good funky B-day if he is still in the biz.
          Also rec. The Camleon Cafe on Harford rd.

        I've been to both Henningers and Birches and would agree they would be great places.

        Pazo is a good date place, but if you want to be able to talk to your date, make sure you request a table upstairs, it can get quite noisey downstairs.

          I decided to go with Bicycle. It might not be romantic, but the menu looks amazing! Been to Pazo and prefer going there with a group of friends and Birches is like my second kitchen.
