most-romantic-restaurants-in-charlotteValentines Day is almost here! I’ve now spent the better part of this week reading online reviews, top 10 lists, social media posts, browsing pictures, and scanning through countless menus.

Many fast-food restaurants has some kind of valentines special on their menu. Like Wendy’s has a special hearty meal on their menu or McDonald’s has some special offers for everyone. But I’ll be telling you about some romantic casual restaurants that you’d love to visit with your partner.

Based on Yelp, Facebook, Google, and Zaggat reviews, online blog articles, Twitter and Instagram posts, and my own personal visits, here are the top 10 most romantic restaurants in Charlotte:

#10 Melting Pot

This is Charlotte’s cliche romance restaurant, if you order all the courses, you’ll be here for at least a couple hours.

#9 Custom Shop

I’d recommend the BBQ octopus if you’re looking for something amazing and unique.

#8 Alexander Michaels

Great food, not super pricey, and 4th ward is the perfect area to walk around after a romantic dinner dinner.

My favorite daters to crash ❣

#7 Carpe Diem Restaurant

Ask for a table in the back corner, you won’t be disappointed.

#6 300 East

During the day they serve some of the best brunch in town, at night they turn into a romantic oasis. This renovated home has a truly unique and warming atmosphere.

#5 The Cajun Queen

This place has some of the best Cajun food outside of New Orleans, and an incredibly warming atmosphere. They’re also now offering 38% off coupons on Groupon (if your into deals).

#4 Dressler’s

If you want an incredible view and some of Charlotte’s best steak, make a reservation at Dressler’s ASAP, this place fills up quick.

The view is good. Cocktails are good. Gonna find out about the food.

#3 The Fig Tree

This place quite possibly has seen the most engagements out of any restaurant in Charlotte, the ambiance is truly magical.

#2 Barrington’s

This place consistently ranks among the top restaurants in Charlotte in terms of food taste and presentation. Small, intimate, classic Charlotte.

#1 McNinch House

Your bill will likely hover around $250/couple with wine, but if you’re looking for an experience to remember, this place delivers every time. If you’re looking to save some money, check out Groupon’s 40% deal to McNinch House.
