1. Fuego Bistro
- “Tucked Away”, “hidden”, And “secret Hideaway” best describe Fuego Bistro’s historic Pittman Fountain Court location. They have a natural and peaceful atmosphere with their brick yard patio and live music

2. Quiessence Restaurant
Address: 6106 S 32nd St Phoenix, AZ 85042

- Quiessence is nestled in the back of The Farm at South Mountain, which allows guests to stroll down the rustic lane to enjoy the beautiful views and bountiful gardens before arriving at the restaurant.
- The Farm is still very active, so walking shoes are recommended for the short stroll. Resort Evening Wear is recommended for dress code.
- The refined rustic menu includes house made breads, fromage, handcrafted pastas and local produce from The Farm at South Mountain and other Valley farms
Set in a restored 1913 bungalow, Cibo (pronounced “CHEE-boh”) has hardwood floors, exposed brick, a stained-glass panel and a fireplace to set the mood while revitalizing the downtown Phoenix area with beautiful salads, antipasto, artisanal pizzas and housemade fresh pasta.
- Live music and twinkle lights in the patio make for a very romantic night

5. Coup Des Tartes
Coup Des Tartes is a charming, 18-year-old, French bistro-style restaurant reminiscent of la belle epoque and the Roaring ‘20s, Paris-style. Now in its new home at 1725 E. Osborn Road in Phoenix, Coup Des Tartes maintains its eclectic decor and warmly lit dining rooms in addition to a new outdoor brick patio cooled by old shade trees and lush greenery. Still Phoenix’s longest running french restaurant, the “new” Coup features a bar made from the remnants of its first home. Coved ceilings and candlelit rooms still abound, and Coup Des Tartes maintains its storied reputation as one of the most intimate and romantic dining experiences in Phoenix
6. Postino WineCafe
- The 1950’s-era Arcadia Post Office was transformed into a local haunt that helped ignite the Arcadia neighborhood. Featuring mid-century style with local artisan touches, a hand-carved wood wine wall, open, communal dining spaces, iconic garage doors and a cozy, candlelit patio would be nice for a date night
- Great for date nights on Mondays or Tuesdays because they have a special where you can have a bottle of wine and bruschetta for just $20
7. Cobra Arcade Bar
- Such a fun date night idea – vintage games and drinks
- Free tokens on Tuesday with every drink purchase and their drinks are named after game characters and 90’s pop culture
8. Timo Wine Bar
- They have weekly events like the Sunday Italian nights where they have a special on Baked Lasagna to share and a bottle of select Italian wines every 5:30pm – 9:00pm and Monday date nights where they offer any Applewood oven pizza and a bottle of select wines also every 5:30pm – 9:00pm
9. L’Amore Italian Restaurant
- Enjoy the formal room, the friendly bar with great live soft music from their musician Jimmy who plays on Thursday – Saturday night or sit on in their beautiful tree lined patio over looking the Phoenix Mountain Preserves.
10. West Wind Glendale Drive-In and Public Market

11. Olive & Ivy
- Dining under the shady trees on Olive and Ivy’s massive patio feels more like southern France than southern Scottsdale. If you are looking for pomp and circumstance of quiet elegance, try the signature private-dining venue, the Stamp Room. If it’s night-life, they have you covered again with the outdoor lounge and bar.
