Georgia has plenty of places to eat out. But what makes for a romantic night out is a special decor or a creative menu, or perhaps some candlelight. A number of Georgia restaurants, from Atlanta to Savannah, have certain characteristics that will make your night out special.
Located just outside of Atlanta, this elegant restaurant has a black and white color scheme and a starburst lighting pattern on the ceiling. The menu features lots of slow-cooked or braised items. Signature dishes include a Warm Lobster Cocktail, the Niman Ranch Slow Roasted Pork, or the Zinfandel Braised Beef Short Rib. Typical desserts include Cross Creek Tangerine Panna Cotta and the Warm Chocolate Cheesecake. However, the menu changes nightly, so be prepared for pleasant surprises.

This tapas bar and restaurant has more of a lively feel but is still romantic. The decor includes exposed brick, little plants and warm lighting and colorful place settings.
