5 Restaurants for Date Night in Milwaukee

It is February 14th, also known as Valentines Day. Honestly, Valentine's Day doesn't mean much to me BUT I have been to some pretty great restaurants in Milwaukee that would make a wonderful date night spot to celebrate. Keep on reading for 5 restaurants for date night in Milwaukee.

Heirloom MKE - Bay View

Located in Bay View, Heirloom has all the right Milwaukee date night vibes. Their farm-to-table menu showcases some awesome appetizers (cheese curds) and entrees (braised beef short rib). The restaurant itself is warm and welcoming and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They offer gluten-free and vegan items as well - a versatile option for anyone's taste! The cocktail menu is vibrant and any of the drinks can be made as a mocktail. This is a great option for a Milwaukee date night - make a reservation!

Eldr & Rime - Wauwatosa

The first time I visited Eldr & Rime I wasn't sure what to expect just because it is a hotel restaurant. I was SO impressed with the food and the service alike. Our date night in Milwaukee was GREAT! The restaurant itself is decorated to reflect Scandinavian design and it is SO welcoming. Their menu holds everything from seafood appetizers, to flatbreads, to wood-grilled steaks. The cocktail menu is fantastic and wine list extensive. If you are looking for both a great meal and dining experience this is your spot.

Carbon Steak - Milwaukee

If you are looking for more of an up-scale Milwaukee date night spot, this one is for you. I visited Carbon Steak quite recently and was blown away by the food. Everything we ordered was wonderful - the caviar, crab legs, steak, and whipped ricotta to name a few. This steakhouse has an intimate vibe, gorgeous decor, and attentive wait staff. It is definitely a pricier spot, but if you are willing to indulge, I would recommend visiting. Try the lobster mashed potatoes - yum!

Saffron - Third Ward

If you are an Indian food lover or are interested in trying it for the first time, you cannot go wrong with Saffron in the Third Ward. The menu offers a wide variety of items for any palette. Order a few small plates to share or full entrees if you are a bit hungrier. Their cocktail menu is extremely creative - unique options filled with flavor. Try something from the Tandoor - I promise you will not be disappointed. This is the perfect Milwaukee date night restaurant because it comes with an experience!

Maggio's Pizza - Wauwatosa

If you are looking for something a little casual for your Milwaukee date night, Maggio's Pizza is a great choice. This pizza parlor opened in 2023 and immediately became one of my favorite pizza places. In addition to 'za, they serve things such as meatballs, garlic bread bites, and salad. More importantly, they serve wine to pair with your meal. When you're finished, try one of their delicious cannoli's. Yes, please!
