Best Philadelphia Steakhouses for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, and what city is more appropriate for a Valentine’s Day dinner than the City of Brotherly (or Sisterly) Love?


Philadelphia has many excellent restaurants, and a lot of outstanding steakhouses; but let’s focus on the very finest of those temples of carnivorousness.


Here are six of the best Philadelphia steakhouses offering Valentine’s Day dinner.


As at most places on V-Day, seating is limited, so make your reservations now.


Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse. On February 14, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse is offering a beautiful range of dishes, including white asparagus soup with oysters, confit duck/foie gras agnolotti, a filet or Maine lobster (of course!) and a Lover’s Dessert Sampler ($75). Italians have a reputation for romance, and Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse gives you all the romance and good food you could possibly imagine.



Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, always a guaranteed good time with exceptional red meat and fish, is offering a Valentine’s Day special from February 14-17. They call it a “Valentine’s Day Filet,” but you’re offered more than just fine filets: it’s also butter-poached lobster tails and seared sea scallops ($49). And there’s a dark chocolate cheese cake. Such a deal; with the money you save, consider a bottle from Del Frisco’s rare wine collection.


The Palm. The Palm is where you want to be, February 14-17, when this classic American steakhouse is offering a classic Valentine’s Day dinner for two. You’ll get exactly what you want on this day of love: a filet and a Nova Scotia lobster ($195, or with two glasses of Taittiner Brut a la Francaise, $220). If that’s not enough for you, the a la carte menu is also available.


Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Few places do steak as well as Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and on Valentine’s Day, they’re pulling out all the stops. For the big day, they recommend mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat or a chilled seafood tower for two. There’s also a custom-aged Midwestern beef broiled at 1800 degrees to keep the flavor in there or, if you prefer seafood, there’s a lot to choose from: salmon filet, Chilean sea bass and Fresh lobster. As you might expect, you’ve got a lot of desserts to choose from (each under $11), including white chocolate bread pudding and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse’s famous cheesecake.



Ocean Prime. Ocean Prime is a nationwide system of restaurants, but on Valentine’s Day, every Ocean Prime location does the day a little differently. In Philadelphia, you start with a Blueberry Bliss Cocktail ($17), a bourbon-based beverage with a blueberry lemon sugar rim. For entrees, you can go for the petite filet mignon with lobster gratin ($65) or the roasted sea bass over Alaskan king crab gnocchi with Champagne cream.  To tie it all together with a blueberry theme, your dessert will be marbled blueberry cheesecake ($13).


Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. “Three courses, endless romance” is how Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse describes their Valentine’s Day dinner. From February 7 – February 18, you have a filet mignon and a choice of North Atlantic lobster tail or colossal shrimp, with apps and dessert ($73; wine pairings $37). To make the meal extra special, you can upgrade to a premium Champagne and a luxury gift for your loved one.
