Date Ideas

Salish Lodge & Spa

6501 Railroad Ave SE, Snoqualmie, WA 98065

Snuggle up by the in-room fire or indulge in a couples spa treatment at this extravagantly cushy getaway lodge in the Cascade foothills. Purchase the "Romance at the Top of the Falls" vacation package and you'll find champagne and a bed covered in rose petals upon arrival.

Campagne Restaurant - Closed Winter of 2011

86 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101

Intrinsically romantic and brimming with Parisian charm, this quiet French bistro near Pike Place practically mandates canoodling. Dine on traditional French fare--if you want to save a few bucks, or simply enjoy a lighter meal, go for happy hour Tue-Fri 5pm-7pm. Save room for desserts like tarte tatin and baba au rhum either way.

Herbfarm Restaurant

14590 NE 145th St, Woodinville, WA 98072

This well-known Woodinville restaurant is the ultimate splurge for foodie couples. The menu changes but always highlights the best of Pacific Northwest cuisine--you won't regret the hefty pricetag when you see the multiple courses; Feb. 11-14 will feature aphrodisiacs to put you in the mood.

Dimitriou's Jazz Alley

2033 6th Ave, Seattle, WA 98121

For a date night in Belltown, head to this sexy jazz club for dinner and a show. Check the online calendar to see who's performing and make reservations--you'll want to score a table for two to enjoy some post-dinner cuddle time in the dark.

Bainbridge Island Ferry

801 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98104

Whether you bring a car or not, there's plenty to enjoy about a trip to Bainbridge, starting with the 35-minute ferry ride across Elliott Bay. For a nice meal while you're exploring, try Four Swallows, a quaint eatery in a converted farmhouse (481 Madison Ave N).

Salty's On Alki Beach Seafood Grill

1936 Harbor Ave Sw, Seattle, WA 98126

The weekend brunch buffet at this Alki Beach seafood restaurant is both gluttonous and sexy, and the beachfront location is the ideal spot to feed your beau oysters and look out onto the Seattle skyline. Work up an appetite beforehand by taking a boat trip through Alki Kayak Tours (206-953-0237).
