Top 10 Most Romantic Restaurants in Houston

Pizza perfection at Dolce Vita.
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.

Brasserie 19's light, white interior is the perfect backdrop for looooove.
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.

On any cold night, I'll take the fire-lit room and a steamy duck gumbo at Rainbow Lodge. Close to the city yet it moves me to the streams and mountains of Idaho...about as romantic as I can feel these days.

I would add Cinq to the list and as a bonus there are rooms for the night upstairs!

Chris Franklin how on earth is Brenner's on the Bayou not on this list?

Corn dog on a stick at the mall. This will subtly introduce tumescence.

Romance, like the effects of weather, happens internally, if you're an imaginative human of warmth and optimism. I think that's what the clever, somewhat illiterate, fellows below are trying to convey.

Close, but you have to understand the authenticity of the mexican cuisine taco bell as well...

Tiny little French place in my hood that I really like...modern but romantic...L'Olivier. Guy used to chef for an uber romantic family in Switzerland, name of Onasis.

I agree.  It was the original Rainbow Lodge.
