Top Three Romantic Dining Spots in Seattle Area

In Love and Eating Out

Make your next romantic dinner a little easier by going where the romance is already in the air at one of these restaurants.

13 Coins Restaurant
13 Coins Restaurant is open 24/7 at both locations with dedicated parking lots. One is in downtown Seattle; the other is across from Sea-Tac International Airport. While the menus are the same, each location is unique. The downtown location is convenient for a late dinner after a concert, ballet, or ball game. The airport location is convenient for a meal before leaving or returning to a loved one. An air of romance fills the air with dimmed lighting, semi-private or chef-counter seating (with leather captain's chairs where diners watch food being cooked), and often live music from the lounge. The menu selections vary from a salad of great portions, to a Dungeness crab omelet, to an Australian rock lobster tail and steak with a side of pasta. For dessert, try the fried ice cream which can be shared between the couple. Reservations not accepted, except for special events.

Woody's on the Water
Located on the Tacoma waterfront, the view is breathing taking from Woody's on the Water. If traveling by boat, guest yacht spots are available. Parking can be found in the parking garage or on the street. The menu choices include smoked salmon, seafood, chicken, steak, or pasta; as well as offer a Gluten-Free menu. Perhaps the most romantic part of the meal is dessert, which the menu is brought to the table on a tray for each diner to ask questions about and select the one that suites their fancy. Candles can be found lit on tables in the evening hours which can help set a more romantic mood. Reservations are taken but not needed. Situated next to the Museum of Glass, it is a nice stroll from one to the other after the meal to look out over the water and gaze at each other by moonlight.

SkyCity Restaurant
SkyCity Restaurant is located 500 feet above ground at the Space Needle. The Space Needle was built for the World's Fair in 1962. It is a unique romantic experience when dining here, as the restaurant revolves 360 degrees as you dine. See the whole view of Seattle from your table after spending the day at the Pacific Science Center which is located next door. Menu items include fresh seafood, steak, clam chowder, crab legs and more with dessert choices of cheesecake, tiramisu, cobbler, or bread pudding. After dinner, take a walk around outside on the Observation Deck, which is complimentary with dining. Reservations are recommended and can be scheduled online (for parties of four or less); for four or more, please call to schedule. Valet parking for a fee is available, as well as parking lots and street parking nearby.

Whether it's for a first date or a tenth wedding anniversary, these restaurants all have romance in the air.
