The Beachcomber in Crystal Cove: Good for a nice romantic sunset dinner right on the beach. You'll sure impress your date here.
The Hobbit: This restaurant is pretty special. A bit pricey, but the food is great. Be ready to eat for 3 hours here.
Garlic Jo's: Maybe not the best place on a Valentine's Day dinner, but the food here is great. With a lot of garlic, you will have a lot of energy after dinner.
Marche Modern: Kind of a nice little restaurant inside South Coast Plaza. This place got some hype after the Housewives of Orange County visited them. Its French food that they serve here, and its really good.
Basilico: Nice cozy restaurant perfect for a Valentine's Dinner. This is actually where I went last year. Good food, great staff. You need to get a bottle of wine when you dine here. Only downside is that they don't take reservations... Wait around at the Irish bar nearby until they call your name.
The Montage: World Class hotel resort in Laguna Beach. They have numerous restaurants here that are also World Class. Impress your date by taking them here with its great food and spectacular views.
Those are my picks. Hopefully, as I continue with this blog, I can post more pages with my other favorite picks as well. By the way, those are links up there to my posts about the place.
Reservations are required for all these restaurants for you to be smooth on Valentine's Day.
Hope you have a lot of fun!
