The best romantic dinner in the Mission

  • 7

Hi all,
I have a friend visiting who is a real food and music guy. I have all sort of suggestions for a romantic dinner in the Mission and I would like to hear from you.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

        A strong second for Saison. Incredible ambience without being overwrought.

      2. Bar Tartine, Chez Spencer, Woodward's Garden, or Range - in the back room.

          1. Hmmm..."romantic" can mean different things to different people. For higher-end, nicer places, all the suggestions here are great. (Well, I haven't been to Woodward's Garden....) Also, Bar Bambino and Limon also fit along these lines. If you're looking for something with a bit more edge and youth, you could also consider Lolo's, Front Porch, Spork. Also, Nihon could be worth a visit.

            1. Agree with Foreign Cinema and Range.

              Woodward's Garden is small and cramp, plus the location and neighborhood (next to a freeway) is less than romantic.

              Bar Tartine is a good restaurant, but a popular and noisy place is not exactly romantic. Difficult to have a conversation.

              Perhaps consider a new place: Commonwealth.
