The Farmhouse offers a quaint and homey interior lighted by soothing tones, so you feel comfortable at all times.

Upscale, romantic, and intricate, the Bacchanalia is a seasonal New American restaurant that offers you and your partner an intimate and chic setting. Bacchanalia has an incredibly unique getup; decorated with industrial touches and contemporary furniture, Bacchanalia makes for an upscale environment like no other place. At Bacchanalia, you can indulge in a multi-course menu that’s worthy of royalty. I'd suggest starting with the steak tartare, following it up with agnolotti, red cow parmigiana, and finishing with an apple tarte tatin…simply heaven!

Don’t fall for the name; Lazy Betty does not hold back when it comes to satisfying you and your tastebuds. This is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta! With a stylish interior that goes perfectly with the innovative menu, Lazy Betty brings creativity to your date night. At Lazy Betty, the minute our plate sat on the table, you'll be bombarded with such a scrumptious aroma that we definitely cleared our plates within minutes.

If you like a classic steak but don’t want to go to just any steakhouse, then I believe Marcel will be the perfect place for you. Straying from the age ol’ American steakhouse ambiance and offering one that’s less casual and more intimate and fancy, Marcel is a beautiful place if you want to spark up the romance over some steaks. At Marcel’s, we'll dined like kings, feasting on prime steaks that are juicy and cooked just the way we like it and sipping on finely aged wine… Marcel is not one to disappoint!
I figured you might want to hit an Italian restaurant if you’re thinking of a date night because well, let’s be honest; there’s nothing more romantic than Italian cuisine. If that’s the case and you’re hoping for a reenactment of The Lady and the Tramp’s romantic spaghetti scene, then make your way to the Sotto Sotto Restaurant where Italian cuisine thrives. From traditional Italian recipes passed down generations to some classics with contemporary twists, Sotto Sotto Restaurant is a sure way to make your romantic endeavors come to life. And, when you take a look at its extensive Italian wine list, you’ll be rushing to make reservations!
The Atmosphere Restaurant is an upscale, trendy bistro that specializes in French cuisine. If you believe you don’t need an intimate setting in a dimly lit corner of a restaurant to call it a romantic night and would rather go for an outdoor option, then the Atmosphere Restaurant is your ideal choice. I'd suggest having dinner outside and let me tell you, Atmosphere Restaurant offers a beautiful outdoor setting (we can always go indoors if you’d like, though) and serves some of the most scrumptious French dishes you’ll ever eat. If you're a sucker for French cuisine and dinner under the stars, then the Atmosphere Restaurant will create the perfect romantic atmosphere!
A New American restaurant, Canoe sits perched on Ferry Road, overlooking the gorgeous Chattahoochee River. Canoe isn’t your average garden setting restaurant; you’ll find yourself amazed by what the waterfront restaurant can do. At Canoe, you’ll be nibbling on delicious appetizers while listening to the soft bubbling of the river nearby…a romantic dinner here cannot go wrong. Trust me, we'll find it incredibly hard to keep away from each other because of how amorous the environment was. Whether we go for their classic dishes or choose a fresh pastry to fill us up, Canoe is a promising eatery with lots to offer!
