One of the most asked questions I get is what are my favorite Dallas date night restaurants. Well, there are quite a few places that would make a good date night restaurant if we’re being honest. It all depends on what you’re in the mood for- and what your budget is. I’ve selected a few of my favorite places that cover a wide range of flavor pallets, menu prices and locations around the Dallas metroplex.
15 of my Favorite Dallas Date Night Restaurants
Some of the tasty Dallas date night restaurants ranging in price, cuisine, location and more!
Taverna in Dallas and Plano
If you’re looking for a patio, great food, friendly service and not spending a fortune… Knox Henderson or Legacy West Taverna is the place for your next date night! It is our all time favorite place to visit for a night out.
Legacy Hall in Plano
Options, options, options! Legacy Food Hall is a food court like nothing else you’ve ever seen. You can get a little of everything for every preference. Walking through the Hall makes for a great start to any date.
Dos Arroyos Comida Casera in Richardson
It’s taken us months to find our Richardson area Mexican date night spot… Dos Arroyos (formerly Frankie’s) has it all. From tasty white queso to brisket tacos, street corn to fajitas, we haven’t ordered anything that wasn’t spectacular. We find ourselves at this Richardson local spot for many date nights!
The French Room in Downtown Dallas
My favorite cocktail bar in Dallas is inside The Adolphus Hotel. I’m a big ole lover of the soufflé. I’m also a lover of the bartenders making me cocktails that fit my flavor profile. This is definitely not a place you roll up in your cut off jean shorts and flip flops, but let’s be honest, dressing up for no occasion except to drink isn’t all that bad.
Ida Claire in Addison
I have only been to Ida Claire once, but the memory has stuck with me for years. Literally years, it was our first Valentine’s Day together and Austin surprised me with where dinner was going to be.
Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar in Dallas and Plano
You can’t go wrong with ordering a pizza from Pie Tap. It makes for a great date night in. If you’d rather go out for date night, you’ll be greeted with a cozy atmosphere at every location in DFW.
Hudson House in Dallas and Addison
The new Hudson House in Addison provides the cutest vibes, just like the Dallas location. It’s sure to make a good first impression on a first (or fifth, ya know) date. If you’re into sharing appetizers, you can’t go wrong with anything you order here. One of our favorites is the burger!
Ferris Wheelers Backyard & BBQ in Dallas
Is there anything better than a cold beer and a plate full of BBQ? Oh wait, there is… Beer, BBQ and a Ferris Wheel. Date night goals if you ask me. Which, you kinda did, since you’re reading this…
Perry’s Steakhouse in Southlake and Dallas
If you are looking for a good steakhouse, Perry’s is my number one choice in the metroplex. The crab cakes, wine options and steak are sure to impress that special someone.
DogHaus in Richardson and Arlington
Nothing says fun and flirty like happy hour with sausages! But seriously, DogHaus provides a great laid back and unique date night experience in Dallas.
