Where to go for a romantic dinner for two

Date night in Des Moines

Iowa can be a tough place to find someone to date, with our long empty stretches and scattered small towns. If you live in Des Moines, things are easier, since the city draws in young and vibrant singles from across the state. Whether you live in Des Moines or not, we can help you find that someone special! And when date night rolls around, here are our picks for the top three romantic restaurants in Des Moines.

Café Di Scala (18th Street)

Famous for its “Beatles Brunch” on the first Sunday of every month, Café Di Scala features award-winning food with great atmosphere. A cozy fireplace is the main focus of one of the three rooms – be sure to snuggle up next to it on a cold winter night!

Django (10th Street)

This classic French brasserie-style restaurant is upscale but not too pretentious, and the staff are courteous and efficient. You can’t go wrong with a fancy French dinner for date night.

Americana (Locust Street)

This modern American steakhouse and tapas bar is fresh and sleek, but still offers the kind of intimate environment you want on a romantic dinner for two. Featuring a lot of delicious, cutting edge takes on American classics, Americana never fails to amaze.
