5 Special Seattle Night Spots for Dates

Seattle, Washington is an exciting city full of art, drama and tourist attractions, and Seattle nightlife is an experience you will cherish, especially if you're looking for romantic places for dates. BBonline recommends the following Seattle restaurants for a romantic evening.

Space Needle Restaurant
400 Broad Street
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 905-2100

This revolving restaurant is 500 feet up in the sky. It offers couples amazing panoramic views of this famous city. It's cozy and you won't feel it revolving because it makes a complete circle once every 47 minutes. You'll only notice when the view changes. It's a great vantage point to watch the moon rise or the sunset colour the city. The Seattle Weekly named the restaurant the "Best Place to Get Engaged" in 1994. The French gourmet food is excellent, and the wines are award winners. After dinner, you could check out the complimentary walk on the Observation Deck and the elevator ride. This futuristic looking restaurant is a must-see from your Seattle Bed and Breakfast.

Carmelita Restaurant and Bar
7314 Greenwood Avenue
North Seattle, WA 98103
(206) 706-7703

If you're a vegetarian, Carmelita with its Mediterranean vegetarian cuisine made from carefully picked organic ingredients is a great choice. The Carmelita Salon has an atmosphere just right for romance. When the weather is warm, you can sit on the patio of the tranquil garden, fragrant with herbs. If you'd like to sit out in the cold, there's seating provided in a covered and heated area with flannel blankets available on request. It's got that home away from home ambiance, just like your Seattle Inn.

Via Tribunali
913 E Pike Street
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 322-9234

Perfect for a casual date, this famous pizzeria (which many say has the best pizzas in America) is on Capitol Hill, and hills are romantic places with the sweeping views they offer. The restaurant has warm subtle lighting, soaring ceilings, cozy booths to get intimate in and beautiful stained glass fixtures. You can watch the pizzas being baked in the huge stove behind the bar. If you think pizza is too casual, you can always add a formal touch to it with some expensive wine.
IL Bistro
93 Pike Street (First Avenue)
Seattle, WA 98101
(360) 329-4673

You'll feel like you're in Italy, the city of romance. You can cozy up with each other in private booth. The staff is unobtrusive, the food is wonderful and so is the wine. The bistro may be a little difficult to find, tucked as it is under a newsstand in Pike Place Market, but it's well worth finding.

2576 Aurora Ave. North
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 283-3313

The Canlis restaurant with its scenic surroundings is perhaps the most elegant place for a romantic date in Seattle, and you are treated like royalty. Many a marriage proposal has been made here. Seated at your candlelit private table, you can look out over the lake through the ceiling to floor windows. The restaurant has a 58-year history. The splendid design, which incorporates warm stone, wood, copper and areas full of light, contributes greatly to your dining experience. It's a place filled with art – from a handcrafted vase to a door handle – and the romantic strains of a grand piano. The northwest cuisine is hard to beat. Canlis has one of the finest wine cellars in the world, so expect to wine and dine in style.
