"I really enjoyed this restaurant. I thought the atmosphere was very romantic. I love the exposed brick. The filet I had was amazing. It had a red wine reduction with a little mushrooms and cheese on top. It was probably one of the best beef dishes I have received in a restaurant. The restaurant also had an extensive gluten free selection which is a must for me. Overall, this restaurant is a bit on the pricey side but I really liked it."

"Love this restaurant! It was our anniversary and the service was superb. We were seated in one of the private booths with the curtain. I think this is one of the most romantic restaurants to go to for a special occasion. The food and service was great. They also great about gluten free."

Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

"This restaurant is definitely a meat lovers dream. I would suggest leaving your vegetarian friends at home. Although, they have a wide selection on the salad bar the focus really is the meat. The food was amazing. They are able to get a char on the meat that is simply amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant. However, because of the all-you-can-eat style and the hefty price point ($50/person) I would avoid this restaurant for any romantic evenings out. It is simply too difficult not to over eat and the last thing you really want on date night is to feel bloated and uncomfortable. Otherwise, the service is great and the food is top notch."

This is a favorite Saint Paul dining destination since 1975. The Restaurant is housed in the turn-of-the-century Dacotah Building which lies in the heart of the historic Cathedral Hill District. W. A. Frost has incomparable ambiance and rare old world character. It boasts several grand wood-burning fireplaces, a charming old bar and the European-style garden patio and garden bar and lounge. The new American cuisine at W. A. Frost is derived from an eclectic mix of ingredients meticulously sourced, with a very strong emphasis on local small farmers that use organic and sustainable practices. Minnesota's best wine list, best outdoor dining in the Twin Cities and the most romantic restaurant are just a few awards received.

"My husband and I were looking for a romantic restaurant near the Xcel Energy Center. This can sometimes be challenging since it is a hockey arena, but we were going for a show. This was our first time there and the restaurant did not disappoint. The ambiance is low lighting, perfect for a romantic evening out. I loved the wood fire places and the place was all decorated for Christmas. The food was reasonably priced at about $30 a dish. I am gluten free and I thought the menu was quite extensive for my special diet needs. I ordered the Roasted Cod and it was amazing. The service was also good. My water was never empty. Overall, I think this is a great restaurant and I would go here again."
