As you can probably imagine, the staff at Plywerk is made up of a lot of smooth operators. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but no one here is the least bit worried. We’ve got romance under control. But some of you mere mortals might need a little help. So if you’re frantically searching for the most romantic restaurants in Portland, we’re here to help you out. We’ve rounded up some of the best date spots in the city.
You really set the scene for a good time when you go to Sapphire Hotel. Upon a time this lounge and restaurant was an actual hotel frequented by sailors and ladies of the night, so romance is just part of its history. But really, it’s got a cool vibe and the food is just right. What more do you need?
Pix Patisserie is the place to go for tasty treats that are almost too pretty to eat. But you will eat them. And you’ll be glad they did. It’s the perfect place to grab drinks and dessert. Choose anything and you’ll be happy. Try getting a rainbow of macarons.
We don’t know how the French got this monopoly on romance, but they sure did. That’s why we have to mention Brasserie Montmarte. Enjoy their French-influenced cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. It’s more fun than actually going to France and you’ll find it easier to read the menu.
If a fine cut of meat puts you in the mood, you should pay Laurelhurst Market a visit. This restaurant/butcher shop knows their steak. But if you’re like me, you will want to fill up on sides. Do whatever makes you happy, I say.
We all agree that a good view makes for a good date. That’s why Noble Rot is an obvious choice if you’re in the business of wooing. Here you can get a great meal, a beautiful view of the city, a fine bottle of wine, and, if you choose, onion rings. Classic seduction.
