Eating, Playing, Kissing and Canoodling: Valentine’s in Kirkland

Do you feel the pressure of Cupid’s bow because you’ve been slow to hatch the perfect Valentine’s Day plan? Don’t worry about it. I’ve got you covered with a few ideas that are sure to put a smile on your sweetheart’s face—and ensure that Cupid’s arrow is aimed at his or her heart, not your head!

Indoor Options

  1. If a fancy, romantic dinner will do the trick for your ideal Valentine’s Day date, Ristorante Paradiso is the place to dine. Serving quintessential Italian cuisine with a wonderful wine list, this stellar restaurant offers an intimate atmosphere and a local vibe. But, it’s always packed—so be sure to make a reservation!
  2. When you’re ready for dessert (and, really, who isn’t?) be sure to make your way to Lady Yum for a scrumptious and delectable assortment of mouth-watering macarons and champagne.

  1. If you’re looking for a more casual night out with your sweetheart, why not keep it low key and have a few local beers or ciders and play a round or two of Mini Golf at Flatstick Pub? It’s always fun, and you can even bring your pooch—because I know who is really the love of your life, am I right?

It’s hard to choose favorites when there are so many gorgeous parks and beautiful water views in Kirkland but here are my “Top Three” because of their spectacular sunset views around Lake Washington.
