Where to Dine for Love Month in Portland, OR

Love Month is here. Yes, you may call it Valentine's Day, but we are taking a less Hallmark approach. So where will you spend it and with whom? We believe Portland could be the West Coast's best city for a date with your partner, part-time lover, or even furry friend. There is certainly no shortage of fantastic restaurants and great date night activities for the upcoming. In addition to our list of top restaurants on Where To Eat, we highly suggest walking across the Tilikum Bridge at dusk for the sunset and city lights glistening on the river. Also, check out the  Winter Lights Festival and the last week of Beyond Van Goah ( both ending February 12). And for those of you folks who want to get your party on, check out Portland's newest dance club

We call it Love month because why should it happen on one Day. Let's take the whole month to share some love and appreciation with those around us. Surprise your sweetie with a steak dinner tonight and some Morracin cuisine tomorrow. Keep in mind that however much you eat out, reservations are highly recommended as a courtesy to the restaurant and provide them the opportunity to give you the best experience. Remember to tip your server and bring them flowers. Yes, you should get your server flowers!
