Romance in the Valley: Tasty Date Spots in #PHX



Special date night? Impress the object of your affections with a meal they’ll remember at one of the Valley’s most romantic restaurants. These picks offer high-quality service with a beautiful setting and of course, delicious food that’s sure to impress just about anyone. 


Quiessence at the Farm 

South East Phoenix 

This award-winning restaurant has been recognized nationally for its incredible culinary experience which incorporates a seasonal, farm-to-table menu and beautiful outdoor dining space. On the weekends, diners enjoy a high-end meal with the choice between a four, five and six-course pre-fixe menu that changes nightly. Wine lovers especially will love the extensive list with more than one hundred options. 




Mastro’s is the gold standard of Arizona steakhouses, and even though the restaurant now has locations in nine states, it started right here in North Scottsdale. This is where you can enjoy some of the top restaurant service in the state as well as a great steak, some incredible wine and most importantly, the infamous butter cake, which might be the world’s best dessert. 




Tomaso’s has been an award-winning staple of Arizona’s food and beverage scene for more than four decades due to its authentic, high-quality Italian food and intimate, beautiful dining space. And really, what could be more romantic than sharing a plate of Tomaso’s “Best Ever Spaghetti with Meatballs” and a bottle of wine?
