Default Quiet Romantic Dining Recommendations

I don't see any recent threads, so thought I would ask. We enjoy the occasional night out to a restaurant that is quiet, darkish, soft music and maybe candle lit for dinner.

Any suggestions in or out of the bubble - restaurants like that seem to be a dying breed!

I think you can pretty much forget about the quiet part.

Another high five for Rose Plantation. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Looking for darkish?

Try Mesa Luna Colony Square, it's quiet and don't forget to bring a seeing eye dog

If you are willing to go to Orlando there are plenty. We have 2 dogs so Orlando only works if we kennel them. Which we do once in a while.

Yup, we too have two, which is why we sometimes have a romantic diner at home, but it is nice to let someone else cook occasionally and our best wine at home typically comes in boxes

There are several places to get great quality food to cook. Lighthouse Seafood Market on 466 has excellent fresh fish, and you can order Maine Lobster. We belong to Costco and I buy their prime meat. Sam's close by has prime but I'm not a huge fan. Fresh Market on 466 carries very nice products. If you are looking for a great dessert Miz Kathy's sweet shop is an excellent bakery.
