3 Best Places for Valentine's Day Dinner in Harlem


Fall in love with these three delicious Harlem dining spots

When it comes to romantic dining spots, few places offer as many must-try options as New York City. From trendy hole-in-the-walls in Williamsburg to upscale eateries in Little Italy, there’s something for all palates (and budgets) in The City That Never Sleeps. 
If you happen to be looking for a romantic spot to wine and dine your beloved in Harlem, you’ve come to the right spot. From stylish Italian eateries to classic French bistros, these restaurants are the perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day with that special someone.


If you’re craving Italian comfort foods in a laid-back environment, this is it. Located in lower Harlem, Settepani is a cute and casual establishment that brings the coastal flavors of Sicily to New York. From linguine with clams to spaghetti bolognese to taglierini with rosemary cream mushrooms, every item on the menu is bursting with flavor. Pair the pasta of your choice with a handcrafted cocktail for the ultimate dining experience. End the meal on a sweet note by ordering cheesecake or tiramisu. 

Maison Harlem

Showcasing exposed-brick walls and light-drenched interiors, Maison Harlem is a quaint French bistro that will leave diners wanting to visit again and again. Founded by two food- and wine-loving French New Yorkers, the bistro offers everything from charcuterie boards and truffle mac and cheese to branzino and duck leg confit. After enjoying the main course, take a peek at the dessert and cocktail list. We recommend the chocolate mousse, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

Belle Harlem

This see-and-be-seen spot showcases New American cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients and served at a communal table. In honor of Valentine’s Day, the restaurant has planned a seven-course menu (paired with bubbly, of course). Courses include smoked chicken terrine with pistachios and dried cranberries; dry-aged pork chop with fingerlings, fava beans, fried apples, and a cremant de limoux reduction; and strawberry cheesecake ice cream.
