Cozy tables where you can watch the giraffes and birds, in addition to an exotic menu……..don’t skip the dessert on this one.

If you’re looking to go all out this Valentine’s Day. Norman’s will get you to where you want to go. Rated as one of the best dining experiences in Orlando complete with a AAA 4 Diamond Award and Mobil 4 Star Award. This one is sure to please.

The Boheme at The Grand Bohemian Hotel
325 South Orange Avenue
Orlando, FL
You can really feel like a “Big Cheese” when you go to the Grand Bohemian Hotel. It’s a luxury hotel and it’s downtown. You roll up to the entrance and you’re greeted with fancy cars, the lobby looks like a modern art museum, there’s a great bar with live music and the food is excellent. It’s a great Valentine’s Day choice.

BRIO Tuscan Grille
480 N. Orlando Avenue, Suite 108, Winter Park, FL
4200 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL
If you want to make it easy on yourself, Brio Tuscan Grille is a great option. It’s got a mood of being in Tuscany with great food. Realistically the Valentine’s prices at Brio might be a lot more reasonable than other places. Plus there are two locations, one in Winter Park Village and the other at the Millenia Mall in South Orlando.

Le Coq Au Vin
4800 S Orange Ave Orlando, Florida 32806
What kind of Valentine’s Day dinner list would we be if we did not have at least one French restaurant on there. Le Coq Au Vin has been in town for over several decades. Their restaurant opened in 1976, just a few years after Disney World opened. The food will be great and the cuisine is authentically French. It’s also in a more established part of the city that most people don’t venture over to, so it’s sure to surprise and impress whoever you bring there.
