We have made a list of some of our favorite romantic dining spots – all within easy distance from the Resort – to help you plan your perfect Valentine’s Day for that someone special.

Tim Garling’s Jackalope Grill is a romantic New American restaurant serving prime steaks and fresh seafood alongside handcrafted cocktails and a notable wine list. Bon appétit!

Romance with a view. NINETEEN at Awbrey Glen offers an elegant dining experience overlooking the 19th hole. The gourmet menu features locally sourced ingredients and regional produce. We love the sous-vide beef tenderloin with duxelle mushroom cream sauce and house-mashed potatoes.

Local’s favorite DRAKE offers creative and inspired comfort food in a brasserie-like setting. Enjoy classic, yet elevated dishes like Little Gem Caesar salad, buttermilk fried chicken, pork chops, and for dessert – butterscotch pudding.

The Blacksmith Restaurant is a hip steakhouse located in a historic blacksmith shop. Slip into a cozy leather dining booth, as you peruse their extensive menu offering prime steaks, fresh seafood, handmade pasta, and decadent desserts. With subtle lighting and stylish décor, this restaurant is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two.

Visitors and locals alike love any excuse to celebrate at Ariana, so come celebrate your special someone at this hidden gem. Chef Andres and Ariana Fernandez have made a name for themselves by using the bounty from local farmers and purveyors to create a fresh perspective on classic dishes. Order a signature cocktail or a glass of wine from their extensive list. Cheers to love!

No trip to Bend is complete without a visit to Zydeco Kitchen. This local favorite restaurant has something for everyone. With so many delicious choices, we recommend ordering a bunch of plates to share with your plus one. Make sure to leave room for the homemade carrot cake!
