Flemings gets my vote. Nice decor, service, fantastic wines & STEAK. My wife & I celebrated Valentine's 2009 there and it was among the most memorable of our 20 together.

After taking a significant other on a date awhile back one evening to the Melting Pot in Brookfield, I have come to the conclusion that this is a unique and great place for a romantic time, plus enjoy tasty fondue choices.in multiple courses. The wine was splended and the wait staff was very friendly. Was a very memorable experience.

Bonefish Grill for me...the food is fantastic, they have a great drink selection (Winter Whiteberry yummy!) and I love the lighting and decor. Very warm & cozy for a romantic dinner.

Mr. B's is romantic. The atmosphere in the bar and restaurant is cozy, charming, and elegant. The food is so delicious and the wait staff is the best!

Cafe One24 is a great spot for a romantic dinner - the atmosphere and service are great, it's small, quiet, and the food and wine are fantastic.

Ooo. Starting a Brookfield-Falls fight eh? You're down for Mr. B's.
Michele Pavlovic February 13, 2012 at 03:06 PM
For me it is Carrabbas. It isn't uptight, like Fleming's, but rather warm and cozy. The lighting is always dim which is refreshing having to be surrounded by God awful flourescents daily. Whether it is just my husband and I or we have our kids, it always seems to be romantic. The kids stay entertained by playing with pizza dough and hubby and I catch up over a 2-for-1 cocktail (that pleases the hubby:).

We really enjoy the Historic Red Mill. Great food, wonderful service, and a quiet atmosphere perfect for romantic dinners!

Jake's! Good old-fashioned steak dinner! And a great patio in summer too!
Todd Prudlow February 13, 2012 at 03:54 PM
Mr. B's is by far the best choice....fantastic food & atmosphere.
Julie Corbin February 13, 2012 at 11:46 PM
Bonefish Grill for the great atmosphere, wonderful service and gluten free menu!
Dave February 13, 2012 at 11:50 PM
Mr. B's is by-far the most romantic place in town. The service is top-notch and the servers know when to leave a couple to themselves. Great job!

Who doesn't love the tableside guac and a zillion margarita flavors at Jose's!? Family friendly but still a nice crowd. This is as romantic as it gets for us with 3 teenagers at home!

The wife and I don't get to many expensive places so I would have to choose Olive Garden. Great food. Great service. Italian music!

Go to Tokyo Restaurant off Bluemound in Elm Grove and get a cozy booth. Then order the love boat for two and share it with your love one! YUM!

I always have a great time at Mitchels with my wife, food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful.
Stephanie Soerens February 14, 2012 at 12:39 AM
Jake's! Cozy old house turned into charming restaurant. Great steaks too!
Deb Nolan February 14, 2012 at 12:46 AM
I like the Melting Pot - you have privacy and chocolate fondue - how romantic! Simple as that!
gracie engstrand February 14, 2012 at 12:58 AM
NorthStar Bistro is the place now that The Grove closed. It has cozy booths for our private conversations and wonderful food with great service. They have a nice selection of wines too! We often go there for our special occasions and they have daily specials as well. Never have been disappointed. Lunches are great too. We highly recommend it.
Kathy Vincent February 14, 2012 at 01:46 AM
Vino Cappucino would be my romantic restaurant of choice. I love their fireplace along with a nice glass of merlot. Pretty much everything on their menu is delicious. A gift certificate would make a night at Vino Cappucino even more special. :)
Laura A. Mokelke February 14, 2012 at 02:18 AM
While I don't normally recommend franchised restaurants I think that Carrabbas has a lot to offer. The wonderful menu filled with family favorite recipes. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. The lighting sets an amazing ambiance. This place wins me over. My husband and I have enjoyed a variety of the wines and favorite dishes.
Jenn Bates February 14, 2012 at 02:33 AM
I like Melting Pot, I love the fondue and the different courses! It's cozy, quiet and you can eat off of sticks!!!!
Roxanne Kitzman February 14, 2012 at 03:32 AM
Mr. B's is not only THE place for romance, it is the yummy food that keeps us going back!
Ibis Kinnart February 14, 2012 at 04:12 AM
I like the Melting Pot's atmosphere. Dim/quiet. The seating seems private, and sharing fondue adds a level of intimacy to the dining experience.
Karen Wenzel February 14, 2012 at 04:33 AM
By far our favorite Special Romantic Restaurant is Mr. B's The atmosphere is superb. The servers always make you feel like a VIP. And the food.... well there is nothing like a Mr B's Steak! It is a most special Restaurant.
Ryan Morgan February 14, 2012 at 05:16 AM
1st Place: Melting Pot... in addition to being delicious, the concept just forces you to slow down and enjoy one another 2nd Place: Parkside 23 Haven't been to Flemings, I have a hunch that would be up there too. Also have to say that we like Jake's in Pewaukee a lot too.
Kellie O'Gorman Brunner February 14, 2012 at 05:42 AM
Mr. B's steakhouse! Why? Give your man a cut of meat from this establishment and you will soon discover how romantic he can be! Food that good is full of romance!
Lisa Sink (Editor) February 14, 2012 at 05:44 AM
That is funny, Kellie. The key to a man's heart is a great steak, eh?
Lisa Sink (Editor) February 14, 2012 at 06:26 AM
