The best place in the OC for Valentine’s Day would be taking my kids to Benihana. They love watching their meal being prepared right in front of them and the food is great. We love the ambiance of it all.   A nice romantic place on Valentine’s Day would be a three-hour cruise with my husband in Newport Beach with a romantic dinner followed by dancing.   Shenandoah at the Arbor in Los Alamitos is one of my very favorite spots. Dinner on the patio at night is lovely with the twinkle lights, heat lamps and koi pond. And the food is amazing!

I placed my focus on new places to dine and at the top of that list is Fig & Olive in Fashion Island in Newport Beach. It has great food, excellent service and beautiful decor. I love it!   My husband and I went to The Melting Pot one year. They had a pre-set menu that was so yummy and they even had a rose and a crystal heart charm waiting for me! It’s the extra little things!   Ruth’s Chris, Mastro’s, Orange Hill and Orange County Mining Company are a few of my favorites! Another great option is The Melting Pot as a fun spot!

Without kids, go to Pelican Hill Resort — they have free valet. If you are with your kids, head over to Lucilles Smokehouse BBQ!   I love House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer in Laguna Beach!   Amelia’s Restaurant on Balboa Island is very romantic and they usually have a special menu for Valentine’s Day.

For a fun night, go to the Irvine Improv! They have package deals for Valentine’s Day.
