I have purchased tickets to a concert in downtown Orlando on Valentines day (2/14). I am looking for a restaurant in the area to go to after the concert, but am not real familiar with downtown and OpenTable.com is not providing many options. I know I need to make reservations early, so im trying to get some recs now.

Can someone please recommend a nice restaurant, preferably romantic or nice ambiance for a V-day dinner in/around the E. Colonial Drive area, or at least within a 10 minute drive from there? No particular cuisine requirements, just would prefer a nice semi-upscale restaurant. Thanks

    Might want to try some of the Edgewater restaurants, Nonna's, K Rest., Taste, Harmoni....all are nice choices. Otherwise, Graze is a great option downtown.

      If you like Thai food, Napasorn is in Downtown Orlando. In my opinion, it's the best Thai food in the area.

        Something moderatley upscale and romantic is Barneys on east colonial. They have early bird specials and if you sit in the lounge,,there is a guy tickling the ivory(playing piano) Good steaks and salad bar. Think of it as a nicer version of steak and ale.

        Harvey's Bistro on the north end of downtown is our usual spot for pre-concert/pre-game dining. Great bread, lobster bisque, and dinner dishes, and is within walking distance or pedi-cab ride to the arena.

        Ditto tommyvee's rec on Napasorn for the best Thai. It's a little further away, on the south end of downtown.
