Ask Santa Feans what's the most romantic restaurant in the city and many will say Geronimo. What makes it so romantic? The carefully cultivated ambiance (sexy lighting, kiva fireplaces, and soft music) paired with a well-executed menu and fine wines are the key. Start your dinner with the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Sashimi and Tartare. This beautifully plated appetizer, served with wasabi pancakes, is a great way to start your romantic dinner. Load up a pancake and feed it to your sweetheart. Toast each other with a glass of Veuve Clicquot and end your romantic dinner with a decadent dessert. Voila: a perfect evening. Most romantic moment EVER? A proposal at table 34 (next to the fireplace in the back room – it's perfect for lovers). She said, "Yes." The final touch: a horse drawn carriage (with a man playing the violin) to whisk them away. Top that!
- Romantic Dining: "Executive Chef Eric DiStefano recommends the Fiery Sweet Chile and Honey Grilled Mexican White Prawns, pairing sweet and bold flavors for lovers. He thinks it's the sexiest dish on the menu. Remember to reserve a table well in advance. Geronimo books up."
