Top 10 Most Romantic Restaurants in Houston
8. Dolce Vita

Though Da Marco is the most upscale (and expensive) of Marco Wiles's restaurants, I prefer Dolce Vita's more relaxed atmosphere, low lighting and tables crowded together. I know, I know, sitting close to your neighbor doesn't sound super romantic, but the style of seating is very similar to what you might find in an Italian trattoria, and that is romantic. Make a reservation for later in the evening, and you'll avoid the families with small children while you sip wine and share a bowl of pasta, Lady and the Tramp style. The pizza is the best in town, and the prices are reasonable enough that you can afford to splurge on some great Italian wine.
7. Brasserie 19

This River Oaks French restaurant seamlessly blends classic French luxury with a modern aesthetic for a sophisticated dining experience with an emphasis on brasserie-style cuisine. Brasserie 19 is a particularly charming spot for a brunch date, where traditional crêpes and croque madames join lemon ricotta pancakes and some of the best seafood towers in Houston. There's no dress code, but you'll want to class it up a bit to keep up with the well-dressed Joneses sipping Champagne with their profiteroles in the airy, white dining room glittering with warm, round lights and bottles of wine.
