7 Romantic New Orleans Restaurants for Valentine's Day | Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias, LLCValentine’s Day in New Orleans, Louisiana, is nearly here. The question for most of us in the Crescent City is, “Where should I make my Valentine’s Day dinner reservations?”

New Orleans offers so many romantic restaurants, making the choice very difficult. That’s why we’re giving you the top seven romantic restaurants in New Orleans, selected by Go Nola.

Here are seven great dinner destinations for you and your sweetheart on Feb. 14:

  • Lilette: With cozy banquettes, deep burnt umber walls, and a French and Italian menu, Lilette has been a popular Valentine’s Day choice for many years. Entrees range from $28 to $45, according to Go Nola.
  • Café Degas: Offering an intimate, woodsy Bayou Saint John atmosphere, Café Degas is reasonably priced with a classic French menu. On warm days and evenings, the front windows are opened up to the street. Entrees range from $20 to $30, a small price to pay for one of the Travel Channel’s Best 15 Restaurants in New Orleans.
  • La Crepe Nanou: Located in Uptown, this creperie feels right out of old Montmartre. La Crepe Nanou is a great place to sip champagne and dip fondue. Entrees are available for under $30.
  • Mimi’s in the Marginy: For those on a budget, try upstairs at Mimi’s in the Marginy. If you go early in the evening, the bar typically isn’t packed, and tapas are reasonably priced—perfect for sharing. If you’re feeling adventurous, order the “Trust Me” chef’s choice and see what delicacy makes its way onto your plate.
  • Café Amelie: One of the most beautiful spots in the city, the courtyard at Café Amelie is perfect for a Valentine’s date. The menu offers American, Southern, and Italian options, with most entrees (picture above) falling between $22 and $25. Café Amelie is located in the French Quarter.
  • Sylvain: If you’re searching for a unique environment, it’s tough to beat Sylvain. The restaurant is located in a French Quarter building over 200 years old, only slightly restored. The menu provides reinvented Southern fare for all sorts of budgets.
  • Delachaise: The tiny, candle-lit Delachaise provides for a very romantic Valentine’s night out. Small tables and booth seats give the feel of a Paris bistro overlooking St. Charles Avenue. Most choose to visit Delachaise for the wine and choice beers, but a small menu does provide entrees and appetizers.

From all of us at Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias, LLC, we would like to wish you and your sweetheart a safe and happy New Orleans Valentine’s Day. Please remember, if you plan on drinking, take a cab home or designate a driver ahead of time.
