Where to Find the Most Romantic Valentine's Day Dinners in Portland

by Alexander Frane on Feb 4, 2016 in Roundups

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and you might just be realizing you need to make a reservation for a dinner somewhere in order to impress your valentine. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with curling up in the corner of your favorite dive and nursing some well drinks. But for those of you that want something a little fancier, here are some of the best looking Valentine’s Day meals in town.
 
In addition to their regular dinner menu, Muselet, the casual yet elegant restaurant and lounge on the waterfront, is offering a set menu on Friday the 12th and Saturday the 13th for $110 per couple with an optional $45 wine pairing or $75 Grand Cru pairing. On Valentine's Day itself, diners can enjoy an even more exceptional menu for $150 per couple with optional $65 wine pairings, or $95 Grand Cru pairings. Make reservations here or give them a call. (3730 SW Bond Ave.; 503-265-8133)
 
Coquine is Portland’s favorite new restaurant, with its farm to table aesthetic, excellent wine and cocktail program, and baked goods. Chef Katy Millard offers a tasting menu every day Coquine is open, but she’s cooking up something special for the restaurant’s first Valentine’s Day meal. The prix fixe menu will be available Saturday the 13th and Sunday the 14th, a four-course meal for $75 with an optional $50 wine pairing (vegetarian and omnivore menus are both available). Call for reservations. (6839 SE Belmont St.; 503-384-2483)
 
Reserve your place now at Ox, Portland’s Argentine inspired restaurant. Valentine’s Day Dinner, which is prix fixe and reservation only, is sure to be amazing, and sure to fill up quickly. The three courses and shared sides all have a vegetarian option. Full menu available here, call for reservations. (2225 NE MLK Blvd.; 503-284-3366)
 
This Valentine’s Day Firehouse, a restaurant in the space once inhabited by an actual firehouse, is channeling Lady & the Tramp by offering a romantic pasta dinner for two. The meal, $90 per couple, starts with complimentary aperitif and snacks, followed by a winter salad and regional pasta dish to share, and finishes with an individual choice of entree. The optional wine pairing is only $25 per person. (711 NE Dekum St.; 503-954-1702)
 
The charcutier + restaurant formerly known as Olympic Provisions is offering two separate Valentine’s Day menus, one at the Northwest location, and a different one at the Southeast. Both are extensive tasting menus, showcasing the versatility of OP’s kitchens. The tasting menus will be served all weekend, from the 12th through the 14th, and are $60 per person with an optional $30 wine tasting (which includes a pairing for each individual course and option). Make your reservation here. (107 SE Washington St.; 503-954-3663 & 1632 NW Thurman St.; 503-804-8136)
 
This year, Raven & Rose has a number of Valentine’s Day events: First, on Saturday the 13th from 3–5 PM is a special cocktail class, “Cocktails for Lovers”. Guests will explore classic cocktails featuring Champagne, chocolate, roses, and romance. That evening, the restaurant and Rookery Bar will be open as usual serving the regular menu, in addition to a special Valentine’s Day tasting menu, available only with a reservation. On Sunday the 14th, R&R will be serving its usual brunch menu, with additional V-Day specials. In the evening, the Rookery will be closed, and the dining room will only be serving the tasting menu; reservations are required. The tasting menu is $80 per person, and guests will have the option between an omnivore or vegetarian menu. Call for reservations for the cocktail class and/or dinner. (1331 SW Broadway St.; 503-222-7673)
 
Chef Johanna Ware is bringing an amazing multi-course Valentine’s Dinner to Smallwares, which happens to coincide with the restaurant’s fourth anniversary. She'll be offering a four-course menu for $65 per person with an optional $30 beverage pairing or Champagne flights, available Friday–Sunday of Valentine's weekend. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options will all be available. See a sample menu here, and call for a reservation or make one here. (4605 NE Fremont St.; 971-229-0995)
