Searching for restaurants in Siesta Key for Valentine’s Day? We’ve honed in on three restaurants in Siesta Key that are totally romantic!

Café Gabbiano

Situated on beautiful Ocean Boulevard, Café Gabbiano has a truly romantic atmosphere. It even has a private, romantic area where you and your beloved can dine without any prying eyes. Located near the northwestern tip of Siesta Key, this restaurant is not far from beautiful Siesta Key Beach, Florida.

So, what’s on the menu for you and your sweetie to dine on? Well, first, you can opt for a Formaggi & Salumi (cheese and meat) Plate. Do a build-your-own or go for the Chef’s Choice. You’ll then want to take a glimpse at the appetizers, which consist of delectable dishes such as Bruschetta di Ischia and Calamari con Pomodoro. You can also get your choice of salad.

Pasta is served for the first dish, and all of the pasta is handmade. The Lobster Ravioli is divine, and the Linguine Pescatora is a fan favorite. As you scroll down the menu, you will see that you can choose between meats, chicken and fish for your main dishes, all of which come with risotto and vegetables. You can add on other sides, such as the Sautéed Spinach and Sautéed Mushrooms.

As for the wine? The menu is massive. Any of their wines can be paired with your meal and chase it down in the most delightful way.

The Cottage

Leave your romantic rental space at the Gulf and Bay Resort and enjoy a romantic dinner at The Cottage in Siesta Key Village. This seafood restaurant expertly meshes American and Japanese-style food and infuses all of it with a cool tropical persona.

Their atmosphere is eclectic, so if you and your other half pride yourselves on being the same way, this is the restaurant for you. Drinks include select drafts, house wines, wells and mixer, select call liquors and mixer, and handcrafted and signature cocktails. 

The dinner menu is nothing short of creative, and it definitely is not short! You can munch on a mouthwatering sandwich if your appetite is rather small. The New England Lobster Roll serves up Maine lobster paired with micro greens and herb aioli, and truffle fries come as a side. Entrees range from the Siesta Seafood Scampi to a Truffle Filet.

If you’re feeling truly adventurous, go for something from the Tapas section of the menu. There are multiple gluten-free options, such as the Peruvian Ceviche, which is mixed seafood paired with aji Amarillo, Peruvian peppers, yam, cuzco corn, lime juice, and crispy cancha.

Also, there is live music every day, so you might just hear something that really sets the mood this Valentine’s Day.

What is more romantic than a mouth-watering steak presented in beautiful fashion on a pristine plate? Chef Evan Gastman at Summer House makes sure that every dish is served to perfection. Here, you will find gluten-free options and delicious all-natural 100% angus beef.

Grab a soup and salad to start, or jump right into the appetizers, which include Wagyu Beef Tartar and a Charcuterie & Cheese Board. From there, you and your date can peruse the Steaks & Chops menu or opt for entrees. The Colossal Lobster Tail might just be big enough for the two of you to enjoy together.
