Whether it is your first date or your fifth anniversary, romantic ambiance is key to having a memorable time. But when you're dropping a lot of cash on dinner, it is also imperative that the food taste as good as the place looks. Luckily Denver has quite a few restaurants dishing up both.
Of course romance has many different meanings, so we've included restaurants in a variety of style, cooking and dating categories. For instance if you are trying to impress her on a first date you might go for a Colt & Gray, because they have a really sexy downstairs lounge where you can start with hand-crafted cocktails before moving upstairs for a proper dinner. Or you could check out the super tiny Cart-Driver in RiNo, because it is casual enough to not freak your date out, while still feeling romantic serving oysters and bubbly.
But if you've been together for ages and are celebrating an anniversary, then dinner at Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House, followed by a show in one of the Denver Performing Arts Center venues is in order. If one of you is training for the next Iron Man race, then you'll want to a health conscious venue that still manages to keep the entrees interesting, something that Bittersweet Artisanal Cuisine and Fruition both do effortlessly.
