Romantic Restaurants in Los Angeles

The Nomad

Your luxury apartments in Los Angeles are just around the corner from the beautiful Nomad restaurant. Of all the romantic restaurants in LA, this is the priciest. So if you are looking for luxury with a three-course dinner including fried chicken with caviar, this is the place. It will come as no surprise that there is a prix-fixe menu at the Nomad including Alaskan king crab. If you are looking to be a bit more casual but want to enjoy the romantic ambiance at the Nomad, head upstairs to the mezzanine lounge.


Looking to escape the bustle of downtown? Want to have a stroll along the beach after dinner? Then head on over to one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Monica, Cassia. Cassia features a Southeast Asian inspired menu that is perfect for sharing. They are known for their fresh seafood and we cannot get enough of their oysters. As we mentioned, the beach is only a short walk away giving you the perfect opportunity for a romantic stroll either before or after your meal.

Let’s continue with the restaurants in Santa Monica over at Michael’s. This hidden gem isn’t going to be cheap. However, if you are looking for an intimate dinner, Micheal’s is it. Upon entering, you will see a beautiful wine bar and lounge surrounded by an incredible contemporary art collection all along the walls. There is an additional upstairs dining area but we highly suggest grabbing a table at their outdoor patio that will make you feel as though you are dining in France. The menu isn’t big but their wine list definitely is. That said, you can easily start the night at Michael’s for a bottle of wine before leaving for dinner elsewhere.

Il Cielo

We don’t talk about Beverly Hills a whole lot on this blog. We will admit that aside from shopping there isn’t much that draws us to this side of the city. However, there are a handful of restaurants in Beverly Hills and our favorite is Il Cielo. Similar to Michael’s, Il Cielo has an adorable outdoor patio covered in twinkling lights. If any of you lovers are looking to have a romantic lunch the following day, we would suggest Il Cielo. Moving on to the menu. They have surf and turf entrees, an incredible array of pasta, and an iconic tiramisu.


Let’s head on back over to the restaurants in DTLA near your AVEN luxury apartments in LA. We couldn’t talk about Valentine’s Day dinners in Los Angeles without mentioning Openaire. Located on top of the Line Hotel, Openaire is basically a greenhouse. Similar to Cassia, Openaire has a menu that is perfect for sharing and that includes the duck ragu.

Romantic Restaurants in Los Angeles

Don’t just stop at dinner! You can choose to have a romantic staycation at any one of the beautiful hotels in Los Angeles. Some of our favorite hotels in Los Angeles that are perfectly romantic are the Chateau Marmont, the Millennium Biltmore, or the Mondrian. Some of you may want to go home and cuddle on the couch after your romantic feast. However, we know many of you will never want the night to end. Luckily it doesn’t have to! Cinespia is also celebrating this day of love over at the Los Angeles Theatre featuring the 90’s classic, The Wedding Singer.
