12 Romantic Restaurants at the Jersey Shore
Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're looking for a special place to enjoy a meal with your sweetheart, the Jersey Shore is full of restaurants that will have you feeling the love!
(Unfortunately, as of publishing time, most of these restaurants are fully booked for Valentine's Day itself...but that just gives you an excuse to celebrate the weekend before or after!)
Often named the best restaurant in New Jersey, Restaurant Nicholas is the definition of upscale dining, but 200% worth the splurge! (They have a handful reservations available!)
Their signature dining alcoves make this the perfect dining experience for couples!
The lighting, the lake just outside, the fabulous food...it all comes together to make Moonstruck a fabulous place for a romantic meal. (They don't accept reservations, but you should be prepared to wait for a table!)
The Molly offers a fabulous fine dining experience, and you just can't beat that view of the Navesink River! (Bonus: turn dinner into a romantic getaway by staying at the hotel overnight!)
Ocean Grove already has such a quaint, romantic feel...add in the awesomely romantic ambiance and great food at SeaGrass and you'll really be head over heels!
Have you ever swooned over food? No? Go to Poached Pear. You'll be weak in the knees...just don't forget to pay attention to your date too!
You'll find Whispers within the Hewitt-Wellington Hotel, a beautiful Victorian hotel in gorgeous Spring Lake. You'll feel like you've been transported to a better time with your love. Even better, there's plenty of availability for Valentine's Day!
One of the few restaurants at the Jersey Shore that offers a full view of the ocean, try to score a table by the windows if you can, but brace yourself for some sexy food. (Start with the Thai chili calamari...or the mac and cheese...or something from the raw bar or...anything really...) Chef Mike's ABG is generally only open weekends until the summer, but the restaurant will be open on Valentine's Day!
There's nothing more romantic than a meal that's been cooked for you with love. That's always what you'll find at Via 45. It's tough to get a reservation here ANY time of year, just because it's so popular, but it's a great experience once you're there!
I'll level with you - it's not the MOST romantic ambiance, BUT the food... such sexy French food. Just...go.
I love the vibe at Char, but more importantly I love the food. Try to score one of the booths upstairs, where it's a little cozier. (They have a handful of V-Day reservations left!)
