If you want to go on a special date to a romantic restaurant, it can be hard to know where to go. Many restaurants don’t have that romantic vibe and you don’t want to make the mistake of going somewhere that will totally ruin the overtone of your date. This article will help you out by detailing three of the best romantic restaurants to go to in Bakersfield for a romantic evening.
#1: Bill Lee’s
Bill Lee’s has been located in the heart of downtown Bakersfield since 1938. It’s ideal location makes it popular to go to for business lunches during the day but by night it’s the perfect place to go for a romantic evening. Bill Lee’s has long been a favorite restaurant of mine and I’ve had many a romantic dinners there. Bill Lee’s has two seating areas and one bar that you can take your date to. To achieve the romantic vibe you’re going for, ask to sit in the first seating section of the restaurant where you can sit comfortably in a booth or gaze at each other at a regular table. The lighting inside the restaurant is dim, adding to the ambience. You can order a meal or get items a la cart. A free pitcher of hot tea is placed on every table which adds to the closeness of the restaurant. Expect to spend $30 to $40 dollars for two people. Their address is 1203 18th Street Bakersfield, CA, 93301.
#2: Black Angus Steakhouse
Though it is a chain restaurant, nothing beats a romantic dinner at the Black Angus. What I like best about going here for a date is that they have several booths along the walls that have high sides so you’re mostly encased in your own little world and can concentrate on your date. The lighting is low; the service is quick and friendly. Another good thing is that they often have meal deals that you can order a meal package that comes with two meals with appetizers to share. It can be pricy though so expect to spend $50 to $60 dollars, depending on what you order. The Black Angus is located at 3601 Rosedale Highway Bakersfield, CA 93308 and their phone number is (661) 324-0814.
#3: Rosa‘s Italian Restaurant
Rosa’s, located at 2400 Columbus Street, Bakersfield, CA 93306, has that old time charming feeling that makes it great for a romantic date. The décor is old and literally makes you feel like you’ve taken a step out of time. It is THE place to go for an authentic Italian dinner in Bakersfield. The restaurant has appropriately lighting for romance and comfortable padded booths. Their prices are comparable to other restaurants so expect to spend anywhere from $25 to $45 dollars. The service can be slow during busy times but that just gives the opportunity to focus more on your date instead of your plate.
