If you're visiting San Francisco with your significant other, or visiting your SO in SF, romance is never far away. In the city where Tony Bennett left his heart, there are more than a handful of restaurants that will turn up the heat on any romance. Master restaurant designer Pat Kuleto and chef Nancy Oakes are behind one of San Francisco's most beloved restaurants, Boulevard. Nancy Oakes is also behind newbie Prospect, which is also well worth a visit.
Jardinière is a pre- and post-symphony favorite, and it also happens to be the perfect setting for enjoying a cocktail with your significant other. Chez Spencer is an elegant French restaurant and bar tucked away on 14th Street. Locals come to Acquerello to enjoy meals that combine the best aspects of two worlds: Italian and Californian.
Want a hint of European romance? Hit up Gitane, a chic spot tucked away in Belden Lane downtown. Frascati brings classic northern Italian and Mediterranean dishes to the table in a lofty space high up on Russian Hill, romantic in it's own right.
