San Diego is a beautiful city with an abundance of unique restaurants and bars. With so many places to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down where to go for a date night. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, we put together this short list of great places to take your significant other.


Little Italy

With the many Italian restaurants lining India Street, it can be difficult to decide which one is the perfect date spot. Thankfully, one of Little Italy’s best restaurants, Barbusa is a perfect Valentine’s spot. They specialize in modern Sicilian cuisine and their pastas are to die for. Be sure to try the Bolognese Al Forno, it’s a classic!

Noble Experiment

Noble Experiment


San Diego is hot on the speakeasy trend, and Noble Experiment is one you can’t miss. Reservations are encouraged (they only book one week in advance) and the ambiance is great. They have great cocktails to choose from, or you can tell the bartender what type of drink you like and they’ll make you something special.

Javier's La Jolla


La Jolla

This authentic Mexican chain restaurant has finally made its way down to San Diego. Known for their delectable margaritas and ceviche, Javier’s is the newest restaurant to come to the UTC area of La Jolla. You can dine out on the patio and watch the sunset or sit at one of the intimate indoor tables. Don’t leave without trying one of their amazing desserts!

Bivouac Ciderworks

North Park

For a more relaxed vibe, check out Bivouac. This cider house will especially be a hit with your date if they’re the outdoorsy type–they have rock climbing and mountain decor everywhere you look! Choose from countless ciders and grab a tasty bite to eat.

Cutwater Spirits


You might recognize the name Cutwater because of their canned cocktails, but Cutwater Spirits is also a restaurant/distillery in the heart of Miramar. If you and your date like the atmosphere of a brewery but prefer mixed drinks, this is the place for you. They even have a special event going on for Valentine’s Day! Try some of their specialty liquors or their fan-favorite cocktail, the peach emoji.
