Just north of the city in the picturesque Texas Hill Country, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is home to one of the most delicious and romantic restaurants in town. The views alone make this restaurant a must, as it overlooks the scenic grounds of the property. 18 Oaks is a fine dining restaurant that serves locally-sourced meats, cheeses and produce. They care about sustainability by having partnerships with organic farmers and sustainable fisheries. They even source from their own on-site gardens, which means your meal is packed with flavor few can compete with. For a romantic dinner for two you might want to start out with their oysters, crab claws, or even better - their tasting platter that includes both as well as shrimp. They feature some superb steaks from Texas ranches, such as Beeman Ranch, that offers succulent cuts of Wagyu beef. Other favorites include seared diver scallops with a jalapeno honey sauce and a Bearnaise stuffed Maine lobster with drawn butter. If that's not enough to put you in a romantic mood, you might want to have a couple's spa day before dinner.
