The Most Romantic Restaurants in Boise Idaho


This European-inspired restaurant is a pretty spectacular dining experience! It’s in an old house in Hyde Park, but they are known for their beautiful outdoor dining and delicious food. It’s casual yet upscale, focusing on organic, local ingredients and seasonality. The dishes change regularly and are all plated so beautifully! This is a great place to meet friends or go on a romantic date night!



Capitol Cellars is one of the most romantic spots in downtown Boise. Located inside what looks like a wine cellar, their dark and romantic atmosphere is perfect for a date night. They have a complete bar and so many wine selections from all over the place you can’t really go wrong.

Chandler’s is known as one of the most quintessential romantic fine-dining restaurants in Boise. It’s also known for its great steak dishes, awesome martinis, and live jazz every night of the week! If you’re looking for one of the most fancy date night restaurants, this is it.

Sonicare Toothbrush


What’s more romantic than a homemade pasta dinner! Alavita makes all of their pastas in house with the freshest ingredients. Plus the atmosphere is great for a date night because of it’s comfortable and cozy feel. They’ve also got a wide selection of beers, wines and cocktails.

If you want a fun night full of great food and dueling pianos, go to Brickyard! They have excellent steaks and great cocktails and are perfect for a romantic date night. Definitely check out their Valentine’s Day specials as well if you’re planning a date night then. 



Upon stepping into the Lively, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a hip, big city. I love the decor, cocktails, and food. The ambiance is what I love the most about this place; it screams romance, but their food is equally as good! My favorite thing on the menu is, hands down, the meatballs. You can either make a dinner reservation for the upstairs portion of the restaurant or sit downstairs for a drink without a reservation (they also serve the full menu down here). They also have a fun speakeasy that you should check out in the back called Bar 40.

Red Feather is connected to it’s sister restaurant Bittercreek Bar and Grill, but RedFeather has a romantic vibe all it’s own. Request to sit upstairs for more of a quiet romantic feel, or sit downstairs to be part of the action at the bar and enjoy some great appetizers and main dishes. Their location in downtown Boise on 8th street can’t be beat!

Little Pearl is one of Boise’s only true oyster bars and is owned by one of Boise’s only Michelin star chefs! Inside you’ll find a modern, cozy dining area and outside a small patio that looks out on the popular 8th Street. They have a great selection of beer and wine options along with a great oyster selection. The seafood chowder is wonderful and so is the chocolate pot de creme! This is definitely the perfect romantic night out!

Wylder is a little more of a “hoppin” restaurant, but still has a romantic buzz to it. Try their mushroom toast or honey badger pizza for a nice twist on a classic pie. Stay for their cocktails and enjoy a romantic dinner for two.

Dash Rapid Egg Cooker


This is a great newer spot on 6th street in downtown Boise owned by the same people that own Barbacoa (another fun and great romantic option)! They have Latin-inspired food and great cocktails in a cozy and beautifully decorated atmosphere! I recommend reserving a table because it can get pretty busy on weeknights and weekends.



I love Richard’s for a romantic meal. Their homemade pasta is amazing and so are their cocktails.

Alyonka’s Russian Cuisine

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boise. It’s small and would be perfect for a romantic date night!

There are so many great restaurants in Boise, check out my other post here! I hope you enjoy your romantic evening out on the town! Note that if you are going out on Valentine’s Day or the week of, it’s beneficial to make reservations in advance and to check the restaurant’s website for any prix fixe menus and events.
