It’s Valentine month — and that means people in Green Country are turning their thoughts to making plans for a little romance that their special person will not soon forget. Showering someone we care about with love is a positive expression of how we care about them. So, as you’re planning a little Valentine’s fun (the Super Bowl of date nights), keep in mind that enjoying good food while you’re out on the town can add a delightful break from everyday worries and sweep you and your loved one off to a bit of romance, right here in Green Country.

Whether you’re looking for white tablecloths and candlelight or a more modern romantic feel, there is something on this list you and — perhaps more importantly — your significant other will enjoy on Valentine’s Day or any night.

The selections here are places where enchanting atmospheres merge with equally inspiring cuisine. These are some of the many romantic establishments our area has to offer. Visiting any one of these locations during this month of love will surely be the right move for you and your loved one. Just remember to call and ask for reservations — because at this time of year, you might need them.

Both Ti Amo’s Sheridan location and its downtown, New York-style, basement level restaurant are exceptional choices for beginning a wonderful night out on the town.

This lovely little gem of a restaurant is located in the busy Tulsa Arts District, so it’s a perfect place to dine before or after a show at one of downtown Tulsa’s local venues. Guests can enjoy chatting about food and cooking techniques while seated at the chef’s counter, watching chefs throw together fresh ingredients and spices to please the palate. Or add some excitement to your night by sampling wines from around the world, paired with delicious food and, naturally, the company you’re keeping for your romantic evening.

Bluestone Steakhouse and Seafood

Who doesn’t love a little steak or seafood when you’re celebrating a special evening? Bluestone provides plenty of both options, served in generous and tasty portions that are designed to win over your taste buds and keep you coming back for more. The warm low lighting and the soft live music in the background lend themselves perfectly to a romantic night. The unique drinks and decadent desserts add the ideal final touches to a great evening.

Celebrity Restaurant
3109 S. Yale Ave. | Tulsa
A Tulsa classic for decades, Celebrity offers a taste of the past and the present all at once. The rich, plush interior is luxurious. The service is attentive and on point. And of course, every item on the menu is a scrumptious delight. Whether you want a perfectly-cooked steak, comforting fried chicken, or delightful shrimp and lobster, Celebrity offers it all. Let them know you’re celebrating something special, because they love doing up a nice dessert to help you celebrate. Celebrity is a choice that is equally good for an indulgent lunch as it is for a romantic meal.

Fireside Grill
River Spirit Casino Resort | 8330 Riverside Parkway | Tulsa
If your romantic evening is going to incorporate entertainment as well as a great meal, add Fireside Grill to your list of options. Situated in the River Spirit Casino Resort, this restaurant is a lovely place to eat before enjoying some entertainment at the Paradise Cove theater or an overnight stay in a hotel room overlooking the Arkansas River. Enjoy some comfort food, like cornmeal crusted catfish or chicken-fried steak, then hit the slots for a little gambling fun.

Mondo's Ristorante Italian

PRHYME Downtown Steakhouse

SMOKE. Woodfire Grill
1542 E. 15th St. | Tulsa
201 S. Main St. | Owasso
Few things are a bigger turn-on than good food, which means both of Erik Reynolds’ restaurants induce love in our hearts. But even more romantic than the ridiculously decadent menu at SMOKE. is the overall experience. Deep in the heart of Tulsa’s Cherry Street or Main Street in Owasso, a romantic night out can always be found at this fantastic grill. Locally-sourced, wood-fired specialties; top-shelf, exceptional drinks; and spectacular service with style make SMOKE. a smart choice. Whether you’re at the intimate bar, in a cozy booth or at one of the center tables, the room at both locations manages to feel both warm and elegant.

The whole Italian experience of romance and charm will fill every moment you enjoy inside this award-winning hot spot. The cozy Italian eatery is the master of dichotomy — creating an atmosphere that is both energetic and intimate while delivering quality food that is as creative as it is traditional. You would be remiss to not pair at least one dish with a bottle of the restaurant’s impeccable selection of wines.

The Chalkboard
1324 S. Main St. | Tulsa
Located at the bottom floor of the Ambassador Hotel, this Tulsa staple has been delighting Green Country residents with fabulous meals and service since the 1970s.
