Valentine's Day Dinner in Phoenix and Scottsdale - 2014

These Restaurants Have a Special Recipe for Romance


A Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner - 2014

Take your sweetheart for a memorable meal on Valentine's Day. Most of these restaurants offer a prix fixe menu for the occasion. Check back often -- I add more listings right up until a few days before Valentine's Day!

Even if it isn't Valentine's Day, you might consider any of these restaurants for a date or other special occasion. Of course, the special pricing or menu might not be available on another occasion. Prices mentioned do not include tax or tip unless otherwise specified.

Note: If you are looking for restaurants that have special Valentine's Day selections where you can dine for less than $30 per person, try these Ten Dining Ideas, on a Budget.
