Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and one of my favorite times of the year to get away from the business of life and enjoy a great evening with my husband. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of romantic love, friendship and admiration. It represents love and affection to partners, family and friends. No matter who you are celebrating with, it is a great way to celebrate love and the great people in your life. There are so many different ways to enjoy this holiday and so many amazing restaurants in L.A. The magic of L.A. gives so many options and diversity with a great atmosphere and great food. We are so lucky to have so many food options whether you’re looking for ethnic food, a beautiful scenery/view, or a fancy steakhouse, L.A. has it all.

Sometimes dressing up and going out is just the thing you need after a long day at work or with the kids. There are so many fantastic restaurants to go to in L.A. If you want a fancy steakhouse there is Carlitos Gardel Restaurant, Chi Spacca, The Grill on the Alley, Mastro’s Ocean Club, and Mun Korean Steakhouse. If you are into sushi or seafood there is Nobu Los Angeles, Sushi Ginza Onodera, Takami Sushi and Robata, and Sugarfish.

Some other restaurants that are known for their amazing view are Geoffrey’s, Saddle Peak Lodge, The Penthouse, Elephante, and Odyssey Restaurant. All of these restaurants either overlook the city or have an outstanding ocean view. Sometimes food is much better when it is accompanied by a spectacular view.

There are also multiple rooftop restaurants to eat at that have wonderful cocktails and drinks. Some of these are The Rooftop at the Wayfarer Downtown LA, The Rooftop Restaurant and Bar, Vista Rooftop, EPLP, The Tower Bar, Catch LA, and 71Above. The rooftops overlook fantastic views while serving great drinks and food!

All of these are spectacular restaurants with amazing food and an elegant way to spend your date night. Happy Valentine’s Day!
