If you’re planning on coming down to Montreal during Valentine’s Day, there’s tons of ways to get to keep things romantic! Montreal is one of the world’s great romantic cities. Its European-style charm, Quebecois culture, haute cuisine, art, and fashion make it so. It is truly a wonderful place for romance and elegant escapes. The Old Port’s narrow streets glistening with wintertime snow are the perfect backdrop for a lovers’ getaway.

Both are under chef François Nadon and provide fine food in a wine-bar like setting. Restaurant Mélisse is modern and elegant. Le Local not only has delicious cuisine and an excellent wine list, but a sultry romantic atmosphere. For environment-lovers, LOV stands for Local, Organic, and Vegan. With an eco-friendly philosophy and light and airy ambiance. For wild food enthusiasts wanting to get out of the city, the Wild Gardens have a special Valentine’s menu. There’s Maison Boulud, which has a special Valentine’s Day menu featuring oysters, caviar, foie gras, or lobster.
