With Valentine's Day only a week away, the Miami Dining Examiner asks the eternal question- what makes a restaurant romantic? Certainly rose petals and candlelight help, but more specifically the restaurant should be attractive, with cozy seating, low lighting, soft music and a warm ambience.
In Miami, where residents are blessed with wonderful weather and waterfront locations, restaurants that take advantage of these pluses get extra credit. The bottom line is, no matter how beautiful and charming a restaurant my be, if the food and service isn't excellent, all the other attributes matter little. It's hard to be romantic when a server is awol or the food is mediocre.
To determine the ten most romantic restaurants in Miami, the Miami Dining Examiner used personal experience, friend's recommendations and online opinions.
