Book a Table at These Romantic Restaurants


Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and Ontario is full of romantic restaurants. Book a table at New York Grill, located at 950 Ontario Mills Rd. and pore over an expansive wine menu in the upscale ambiance. Popular dinner items include lobster tempura, oysters on the half shell, steak and Australian lobster. Frank’s Fondonte for dessert topped with a port is a house favorite.

Rossa’s Cucina Enoteca at 425 N Vineyard Ave. is known for classic European flare in an intimate surrounding. The ravioli con granchio, capellini dello chef, and scampi champagne are popular choices. For dessert, a classic tiramisu or spumoni, or perhaps a selection of cakes and pastries, supplies a sweet ending.

The Perfect Date

Reserve a table at The Sycamore Inn, located at 8318 Foothill Blvd., if filet mignon and crab cakes are the makings for your perfect Valentine’s Day. The cozy lodge on Route 66 features hand-shucked oysters, a savory porterhouse and other steak cuts, braised lamb, and jumbo scallops. Tableside Sycamore Souffle in chocolate or grand marnier with whipped cream and powdered sugar is a special treat.

Try Spaggi’s in nearby Upland at 1651 W Foothill Blvd H for upscale Italian fare with an option for outdoor seating. Wagyu beef ravioli with black truffles, calamari fritti, asiago potatoes, and gnocchi complement the most romantic holiday of the year.
