Valentine's Day is coming up, and it's not too late (yet) to make reservations at some of the best restaurants in the Little Rock area. Many of these restaurants accept reservations online, so you have no excuse to forget your someone special this year. I've indicated that the restaurant accepts reservations where applicable.
Brave New Restaurant is an old standby, but they still impress. They serve contemporary American cuisine by the Arkansas River. The seafood is always top notch. Brave New Restaurant has a romantic atmosphere and some of the best views in the city. Brave New Restaurants accepts reservations.
The Pantry has some of the best food in the city and a nice, casually romantic atmosphere. The menu is a mixture of European flavors and never fails to please. These would be a great place to take a foodie date.
Sonny Williams Steak Room is the perfect place for a carnivore date. Many consider Sonny Williams' steaks the best steaks in central Arkansas. They also have chicken, pork and a salad bar. The atmosphere is white tablecloth, upscale casual. Sonny Williams Steak Room accepts reservations.
YaYa's has a classy atmosphere, top notch food and great service. They have a European inspired menu with pizza, pasta, seafood and more. YaYa's Euro Bistro accepts reservations.
South on Main has a modern vibe, with live music on some nights. The menu consists of upscale Southern cuisine like dumplings and cornbread dressing. It's a great place for an evening out, but the location is smallish so it can get loud when there is a performance. Check their calendar for events.
Bruno's has a romantic atmosphere with checkered tablecloths and authentic Italian food. Their pasta dishes are always a hit. They now offer free valet parking. They can be crowded on Valentine's, but it's worth the wait. South on Main accepts reservations.
Bonefish Grill has been around for a while, but they are still great. The seafood is a good bet, but they also have chicken, pork and beef. The atmosphere is casual upscale, but it's nice for a date. Bonefish Grill accepts reservations.
One Eleven has a great atmosphere, nice seafood selections and steak. The Capital Hotel has long been a destination for romance, and One Eleven is no exception. The upscale atmosphere and top notch service make this a great place for a special evening. One Eleven at the Capital accepts reservations.
